We are not interested in a 'poisoned nusu mkate' - Raila

Opposition leader Raila Odinga has appealed for peaceful campaigns 25 days to the General Election following disruption of the National Super Alliance (NASA) rallies in Thika, Murang’a, and Baringo as well as the heckling of Deputy President William Ruto in Homa Bay and Kisumu.

Speaking on Radio Citizen’s Jambo Kenya show Friday, July 14 morning, Raila said that what happened was in Thika, Murang’a, Baringo, Homa Bay and Kisumu was ‘childish politics’, alleging that the youth who hurled stones at his motorcade were Jubilee emissaries who were paid to disrupt a peaceful rally.

“If you have a problem with a politician, then don’t attend the rally and if you must, listen then later make your verdict instead of attacking. Regardless, I forgive them,” said Raila.

He urged his supporters to be disciplined during these politicking times and not follow or display uncouth habits.

Further, he dismissed allegations of aiming for a caretaker government, asserting that every case filed by NASA against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) was to make sure the elections will be free and fair but not to stall the process.

“We do not want a ‘nusu mkate’, we want a full-bread, it is too late to go for a ‘nusu mkate’ government, which has already been poisoned,” he said.
