NASA takes campaign to Narok ,promises to implement Manifesto

BY KORIR JUMA,28TH JUNE,2017-The national Super Alliance NASA  took its elections campaign to Narok county Wednesday promising to implement fully their manifesto launched on Tuesday.Speaking at Enoosaen town in Narok county,the NASA leaders Raila Odinga,Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula said nothing that was in their manifesto will be left unimplemented. NASA also had issues with internal security CS  Joseph Nkaiserry  over his claims that he will arrest  Odinga over incitement in Narok.Deputy presidential candidate Kalonzo Musyoka  daring  Nkaissery to arrest flag bearer Raila Odinga over  claims of inciting Kajiado residents on land.

Kalonzo told the CS to make good his threat and hold the Opposition .

While on a campaign trail two weeks ago Raila called on the Maasai community to desist from selling their land to outsiders in a bid to fight abject poverty.

He said if he wins the general election, his administration will economically empower the community and ensure the habit of selling land ends.

The government, however, said the remarks were inflammatory and likely to cause chaos, and called for Raila’s arrest.

But Kalonzo, who is Wiper leader, said: “Raila is a presidential candidate just like [Uhuru Kenyatta]. If you want Kenya to collapse, try and touch Raila.

“There are those who have been sent here to record what we are saying and take this to Nkaissery. We say ‘record properly’.”

Kalonzo spoke during a campaign rally at Enoosaen town in Narok county.

The former Vice President hit at Jubilee accusing it of misrule and mismanagement of public funds since it ascended to power.

“Imagine we are left with exactly 40 days to the elections. We are counting the ’40 days of a thief’ for Jubilee to go home,” Kalonzo said.

He called on residents to come out in large numbers on election day and vote for politicians in the Opposition’s National Super Alliance.

The Wiper leader  reiterated the coalition’s commitment to supporting devolution.

He said they will increase allocation of funds to counties from 15 per cent of the total budget to 45 per cent.

Kalonzo further said NASA will regulate the importation of sugar to save local industries from collapse as is the current scenario.

“If we say anyone can import sugar we kill our industries. If we kill industries they shut down and cause job losses but we want to create jobs for our youth,” he said.

Raila urged Narok residents to vote overwhelmingly for him like they did in the general election on March 4, 2013.

“I have come to tell you that the dawn is here again. The cock has crowed. Wake up…it’s time to chase away thieves.”

The ODM leader said residents of all the regions they have toured have complained of the high cost of living.

He criticised Uhuru’s pledge of building a Sh15 billion EABL factory in Kisumu saying it’s indicative that Jubilee has developed cold feet ahead of the elections.

“The brewery he spoke of is a private investment and not a government initiative,” he said.

Raila also said the Jubilee administration is trying to save face as it has not fulfilled election promises and has made more unrealistic pledges to the electorate in NASA strongholds.
