President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that the Jubilee Party will impeach the opposition leader Raila Odinga within three months if he is elected in the repeat poll next month.

Speaking during a meeting with a section of Kamba leaders at State House, Nairobi, President Kenyatta said the National Super Alliance (NASA) does not have the parliamentary strength to govern effectively if Raila is elected.

“Tell me now if Raila is elected how will he govern the country? In the last Senate as the ruling party,  we had problems because we could not pass Bills because of the balance in the number of senators, now we have the majority to even change the Constitution,” said President Kenyatta.

The Head of State said that he will be conducting door-to-door campaigns as he urged Kamba leaders, mostly those elected on Jubilee Party ticket, poll losers and government top honchos, to drum up support for his re-election.

“The proof of the pudding is in the eating. It will count for nothing if we hold these meetings here at State House and we don’t campaign in the grassroots. We will be launching door-to-door campaigns to ensure that we get elected,” assured President Kenyatta.

Deputy President William Ruto advised the Kamba leaders to soldier on regardless of the criticism they might receive from politicians, saying that Jubilee is the right party to advance the community’s interests.

“Yesterday, I talked to former Wiper Party Chairman David Musila and he told me he is taking a lot of flak and he is being branded as a job seeker by our competitors. I want to tell him to soldier on because there is nothing wrong with looking for a job, even President Kenyatta and I are looking for jobs.,” said the Deputy President.

Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua who was among the leaders in attendance threw his weight behind President Kenyatta’s re-election, saying that President Kenyatta is the best choice for the country.

The metting was attended by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, Kitui East MP Nimrod Mbai, Kitui South MP Rachael Nyamai, Machakos Town MP Victor Munyaka, Yatta MP Charles Kilonzo, former Kitui Senator David Musila, former Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambu and former Kilome MP Regina Ndambuki.
