Nyanza presidential campaign team has renewed calls for the adoption of a six piece voting pattern in opposition’s strongholds in order to prevent Jubilee from rigging elections.
Led by nominated Member of Parliament Oburu Odinga, the team said that the Opposition is now ahead of Jubilee government and is set to win August polls.
As a result, they alleged, the Jubilee administration was now crafting ways to ensure that they rig the polls.
The team noted that a large voter turnout in Opposition stronghold’s as well as an adoption of six piece voting suit would help block Jubilee from rigging the polls.
“I want to urge our supporters not to be scared and instead come out in large numbers and vote in Raila Odinga as the fifth President,” said Oburu.
The team also noted that embracing the ODM’s formula of voting will also help strengthen the Raila presidency.
Homa Bay women representative Gladys Wanga said that they will not accept what happened in the 2013 elections which saw the Opposition register few numbers in parliament.
“Let us not allow a repeat of the last parliament where tyranny of numbers by Jubilee saw critical bills shot down,” Wanga added.
Addressing a series of campaign rallies in Ndiwa constituency, the team also challenged Independent candidates to step down and back the ODM candidates.
Oburu claimed that most of the Independent candidates were being bankrolled by Jubilee so as to weaken The National Super Alliance (NASA) flagbearer Raila Odinga.
“It is strange that how some of the MPs are now campaigning using choppers but previously they could not fuel their cars. Where have they gotten the money?” he posed.
The team defended Governor Cyprian Awiti’s development record saying that he had done well with the limited resources.
Both ODM chairperson John Mbadi and Women Representative Gladys Wanga instead blamed the Jubilee government for frustrating the County chiefs through underfunding.
