BY PSCU/KORIR JUMA,7TH OCT 2017-President Kenyatta has affirmed that Jubilee party is committed to nurturing the youth to ascend to power unlike the opposition which is used to mass action and violence. Addressing residents of shamata in nyandarua county on Saturday, the president said there was no way opposition leader Raila Odinga could ascend to power through the backdoor.
The President said there is no leader who can access power through incitement and violence as all authority is vested on wananchi who can only give it through the ballot.
The President who was accompanied by the Deputy President William Ruto, dismissed opposition’s plan of inciting Kenyans to mass violence so that he can negotiate for a coalition government.
“His focus is organising protests and calling for press conference to incite violence,” said the President.
“Looting, mass action and violence against women is not the way to go” he added.
President Kenyatta said Jubilee party would not engage in out-dated politics but instead it will focus on nurturing more youth to ascend to power.
Deputy President Ruto echoed the President’s sentiments saying, “He is calling for mass action to incite violence so that he can get to power through the back door.”
“There is no other way of getting to power, it is only through the votes of citizens,” he added.
The Deputy President said Jubilee will defeat NASA the same way it did in the August 8th polls.
He said Jubilee plans to set up a potato factory in the County that will add value to the product which is the main farm produce from the area.
The Deputy questioned Mr Raila’s commitment to democracy since he is always fighting constitutional bodies.
He asked: “What kind of Democrat are you if you are opposed to everything?”
The Deputy President said Jubilee defeated NASA with 1.5 votes in the August polls and called on the voters to turn out in large numbers and ensure Jubilee wins the October fresh presidential polls with a wider margin of 4 million votes.
Local leaders among them Governor Francis Kimemia urged wanachi to turn out in large numbers to affirm their choice of President Kenyatta through the ballot come October 26.
