Jubilee administration has criticised the Opposition National Super Alliance (NASA), saying their continued complaints is because they are ill prepared for the coming General Election.
Speaking in Nandi County President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto made it clear that their counterparts have constantly wanted to derail plans to have the elections.
The President said NASA team led by Raila Odinga are only interested in causing unnecessary splits among Kenyans.
“These people have other intentions and not elections. I once challenged the clergy on the kind of Raila’s stature who has constantly been putting blocks on every step the institutions involved in elections are taking,” said the President.
Kenyatta reiterated that attempts by the Opposition to drag the name of the security teams to court will not only damage their name locally but across the world.

He also warned about farmers’ concerns questioning what the former Prime Minister did when he was in office.
“Raila was once a Prime Minister, what good did he do to farmers? As a government, we have reduced prices of fertiliser from Sh6,000 per 50kgs to Sh1,800. Our focus is on hybrid seeds along with ensuring write-offs on loans and providing milk coolers totaling to 35 to dairy farmers in Nandi,” he said.
President Kenyatta did not spare NASA co-principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi.
“Mudavadi has been in government since he left university under the Moi administration while Kalonzo despite being a former Vice President has never stepped foot in Nandi nor even held a harambee yet they want to lead the country,” said Kenyatta.
Ruto claimed that the Opposition was not ready for the coming polls and challenged them to wait for 2022 elections.
“Who forced them to enter into the elections with us? They have instead reduced themselves into professional propagandists. Our advice to them is that they should hold on their ambitions until 2022 because it appears the race is tough for them,” he said.
Ruto who drummed up support for the aspirants in the region, maintained that they have a solid track record and urged the locals to give them another term.
“We have achieved a lot in development ranging from the Standard Gauge Railway, free maternity for women and improved infrastructure, the Opposition can only continue to dream of track records yet they cannot account for many years they have been in Government,” said Ruto.
Nandi gubernatorial nominee Stephen Sang assured the duo that the region is solidly behind Jubilee and will vote for them in August.
He also used the Platform to call on the head of state to write off loans that are owed to the farmers in the region.
“We have an impressive track record under the current government and we assure you of a 99 per cent vote. Our call is a write off on loans belonging to Hekima and AFC,” he said.
