President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned NASA against taking shortcuts to leadership, saying the August 8 general election will not be postponed.
“NASA is saying there will be no election in August because there is no electronic transfer of results. But I told Kenyans last year when they started playing with IEBC that they (NASA) are not ready for elections,” Uhuru told residents on Tuesday at a rally in Ukunda.
He said Kenyans are not ready for another coalition government and are ready to select their leaders to continue with the job.
“Do Kenyans want half bread issues? Do you want stories of half bread?” he said.
Uhuru said Jubilee will not talk “the tribal road” like NASA “who have vowed to ensure once elected that Kenyans will go back to their homes”.
“The Jubilee administration will protect every Kenyan
across the country regardless of tribe with all their properties and life. The government
will serve you wherever you are. That is the only way to bring development in
the country,” the President said.
DP William Ruto said NASA should stop playing around with trying to postpone the elections by going to court.
“They have gone to court with a lot of issues
including IEBC, ballot papers, commissioners, BVR kits, voter register and now
they have taken the issue of postponing,” he said.
He said NASA should just allow Uhuru to continue with his five year-term since they are not ready, and face him in 2022.
“Let us elect Uhuru this year and wait for me in 2022 so that we can face it off with them,” the DP said.
Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya noted that the elections have been slated for in the constitution, so Kenyans should go ahead and vote.
With 21 days to the polls, Jubilee and NASA is intensifying campaigns and have spent billions in more than 850 campaigns countrywide.
