BY KORIR JUMA/PSCU,21ST OCT 2017-President Uhuru Kenyatta on Saturday 21st Oct took the Jubilee re-elections campaign to Kajiado county where he criticized NASA leader Raila Odinga for boycotting repeat poll slated for October 26
“Tunamwambia Wakenya wamechoka. Tukisonga mbele anaturudisha nyuma, ati Kenya hii haiwezi endelea bila yeye. My friend Kenya is not about an individual but 45 million people,” Uhuru said.
“Vile mganga wako na haki ya kubaki nyumbani … sisi hatuwasumbui. Tunawaambia, wasikanyagie haki ya Wakenya ambao watapiga kura.”
( “We’re telling him Kenyans are tired. When we go forward, he takes us backwards saying Kenya cannot move on without him … but we’re telling them not to stop those who want to vote.”)
Uhuru said Raila has been complaining and giving out orders since the Supreme Court nulified his win.
“My friend, it is not about satisfying your ego, it is not about satisfying your dream. Kama ameamua ya kwamba hautashugulika kwa uchaguzi (if you have decided not to participate in the election), we cannot continue to hold Kenya in suspense,” Uhuru said.
On his part, DP William Ruto said anybody planning violent protests ahead of the elections is equivalent to a terrorist.
“Anybody organising street riots where properties are destroyed over a democratic process and election officials being attacked, that is the language of terrorists,” he said.
“That you plan violence in Kenya, that you want to prevent elections from happening, hiyo ni mbinu ya watu ma dictator na terrorists and it’s unacceptable,” he said.
