BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,22ND SEPT 2017-The national super Alliance presidential candidate and leader Raila Odinga now says President Kenyatta wants to cling to power and drive the country to a halt like it was the case with former Ivory Coast’s President Laurent Gbagbo, who refused to leave office despite losing in an election resulting to violence.
Addressing the press at the Okoa Kenya offices in Nairobi Friday 22nd Sept,Odinga who was accompanied by other principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula Odinga says the continued attack on the supreme court by Jubilee and president Kenyatta since it delivered a ruling nullifying the election serves to drive a misleading point that Jubilee won the election.
He says Davis Chirchir logged into IEBC servers at the Bomas of kenya using hi personal details with the same being used 10,000 times in accessing the server and therefore multiplying Uhuru votes.
He has accused Uhuru for not ever speaking on free and fair election.”He wants ballot boxes opened because they are stuffed with two million extra ballot papers printed by AL Ghuraiar”.he said.Odinga also says one of the supreme court judges who gave the dissenting opinion during the delivery of a full ruling on presidential results nullification spend the entire day at state house before the full riling .
STOP ATTACKS DIRECTED AT JUDGES
He has asked Jubilee and president Uhuru to stop attacks directed at the judges saying the judiciary just like two other arms of government was independent and nobody could dictate to it on how to discharge its duties.He says the court just did its job as required by law telling off president Kenyatta that it was a coup by four judges who gave the ruling annulling the election.
He says NASA was not afraid of election but will not go into it unless that playing ground was level and free.
He has also taken issue with the October 26th date for a repeat presidential poll was informed by demands from a ballot paper printing firm which wants to manipulate the process once more.He says IEBC did not consult them being interested parties which was against expectations.
ATTORNEY GENERAL ON INCUMBENCY
NASA has also replied to statement by the attorney general Githu Muigai who had earlier on in the day affirmed that president Kenyatta will remain in power even if elections were not held within 60 days.NASA says Muigai was misleading Kenyans.
NASA principal Moses Wetangula says it was clear that there was no provision in the constitution that guarantees president Kenyatta stay in office after the stipulated period has passed.
