Devolution Cabinet Secretary, Mwangi Kiunjuri, has accused National Super Alliance(NASA) presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, of plotting to create a constitutional crisis by rejecting new poll date.

The Devolution CS says that Raila’s threats to boycott the fresh poll on October 26, if his demands are no met, is meant to create tension in the country in order to call for mass action.

Speaking at the Allamano grounds in Maralal town on Saturday, the CS warned the former Prime Minister that if he sparks bloody chaos he risks arrest and prosecution by the International Criminal Court.

“If you refuse to participate in the presidential election on October 26, just go home and if you breach peace in Kenya after loosing an election, we shall not hesitate to take you to the Hague,” Kiunjuri warned.

Samburu West MP, Naisula Lesuuda, backed up Kiunjuri by urging the opposition to accept the date set for the  repeat election and resume their campaigns so that the country can move forward.

“Raila should stop riding on side shows. He should instead look for votes, we know he wants to create constitutional crisis,” Lesuuda said.

Kiunjuri reassured Samburu residents that the Jubilee government has not neglected them and have provide food relief.

He urged the residents to show solidarity with their elected leaders by voting for President Uhuru Kenyatta in the repeat election.
