Uhuru asks Kiambu residents to vote six-piece
President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy President William Ruto on Sunday, June 18 urged Kiambu County residents to ensure they vote in large numbers to ensure Jubilee Party wins by a big margin.
The President and his deputy said their plan is to ensure that they defeat National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate Raila Odinga by an unassailable margin so that he does not get excuses to make claims of rigging.
The two have also accused the opposition leader of planning to make claims of rigging after he loses in the August 8th polls.
“The opposition knows it will lose the election and we know what they are planning. Their plan is to claim that the election was stolen from them but we know the antidote for that. It is a huge voter turn-out so that we send them home for good,” said the President as he blasted Raila for his hate speech and incitement to violence allegations.
The Deputy President said the statements made by Raila in Kajiado are unacceptable, adding that the opposition had resorted to incitement because they lacked genuine ideas for the progress of the country.
“We are telling you that your type of politics is poor politics and what you are doing is unacceptable,” said DP Ruto.
President Kenyatta said the Jubilee government will continue with its transformative development agenda that has seen Kenyans get better services from the government.
“In Kiambu County, the number of homesteads with electricity was tripled by the Jubilee government in the last four years. The government is also building 300 kilometres of tarmac road in the county,” added the president.
National Assembly’s Majority Leader Aden Duale said Raila is engaging in the same kind of politics that the opposition used to create conflict in 2007.
“In 2007, the Deputy President and I were in the same party with Raila. He used the politics of 41 tribes against one and Kenyans fought. We will not allow him to do the same this time,” said Duale.
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria said the Government should take action against the opposition leader for inciting Kenyans against each other.
