NASA denies it plans to boycott August polls, accuses media
NASA has denied it plans to boycott the August polls over rigging plans – NASA says its leaders were quoted out of context by sections of the media – Raila and Kalonzo said there is no need to go to the polls when the outcome is already pre-determined – They tabled damning documents implicating the military ahead of the August 8 polls The National Super Alliance (NASA) has come out guns blazing to deny its leaders plan to boycott the Tuesday, August 8, polls over plans by Jubilee to rig. On Friday, July 28, NASA leaders Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka sensationally claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta is using the military to retain power by all means possible. As reported by TUKO.co.ke, NASA tabled damning documents which detailed the plans they suspect are meant to ensure Uhuru continues as president after the polls.
They said 226 new soldiers are being trained at Mariakani Barracks to be deployed on this mission. The new soldiers, according to them, don’t have networks in the military and so they will easily take orders.
KDF later on admitted the document Raila tabled was true but said it was taken out of context. It is at this point that the NASA leaders said there is no need to go to the polls when the outcome has already been determined. NASA leaders Photo: Facebook/Raila Odinga
They said they were misquoted by the media and that they are ready for the polls. A NASA-owned website said the ‘misrepresentation by the media’ was wrong as NASA supporters may fail to turn up for the polls, giving Jubilee party an advantage.
