BY NAMULONGO PETER/CORRESPONDENT,15TH OCT 2017-The national super Alliance NASA has maintained that there will be no elections without reforms.NASA leaders led by Raila Odinga who addressed supporters at Mama Ngina Drive in Mombasa on Sunday said the country longs for change of political leadership.
Odinga castigated Jubilee for claims that NASA wanted a coalition government .”We don’t want a half bread we want our full share”.said Odinga.Odinga has reiterated that unless the irreducible minimum list they gave IEBC is implemented there can be no credible poll.
He says there must ensure that all servers that have election data belonging to kenyans must be brought back to the country and not kept in foreign countries.
He also added that posting of returning officers in various parts of the country must be done through open process where each and every officer has his or her on destination documented ,there should be no use of excel papers in transmitting results.He also wants new firms to take place for Safran Morphor and AL Ghurair saying they can not be involved in a fresh election after evidence of aiding malpractices in August 8 poll. Odinga also took issue with Deputy president William Ruto accusing him of hypocrisy with coalition government assertion against Odinga.
RUTO WAS BEHIND NUSU MKATE GOVERNMENT
According to Odinga it was Ruto who led the talks that gave rise to coalition government after the 2007 disputed election. Odinga who related Jubilee leaders to a warthog says It was in bad faith for Ruto to continue associating NASA’s demands for a free and fair election to a coalition government.”I was never in talks that led to the coalition government in 2007 it was Ruto who was the representative of ODM by then so he should not even say anything”.said Odinga.
Odinga further accused Third Alliance presidential candidate Ekuru Aukot for falling for Jubilee tricks of allowing his name to be on the ballot even when he had not campaigned.
He also added that other seven candidates who during the August 8 election got less than 1 percent of votes stands no chance to win and they are being used by Jubilee to fulfill their selfish agenda by allowing there names to be on the ballot.
Odinga has also insisted that their peaceful demonstrations to push for changes at the IEBC will continue with the coalition planning to hold a mother of all demonstration on October 26 to ensure that no polls took place.They plan to ensure that their supporters do not participate in repeat poll unless their demands are met.
