On Friday, August 24, NASA announced plans to have a prayer service outside the Supreme Court – Hours later, the police announced that any request the opposition sends to them will be rejected – The prayers are to pray for NASA in the petition they filed against Uhuru Kenyatta and the IEBC The National Super Alliance, on Friday, August 24, announced plans to have a church service outside the Supreme Court. The plans, announced by co-leader Moses Wetangula, said that they will hold a peaceful vigil outside the court house to seek God’s intervention on Sunday, August 27. “We agreed that all members present here and those who could not make it to the meeting will join us for the prayers,” said Wetangula.
However, in response, the Nairobi police boss, Japheth Koome said no assembly will be allowed near the courts. Information reaching TUKO indicates that Koome said they will deny any request by the opposition alliance to congregate outside the court on Sunday.
The news was first announced by Embakasi East MP elect who ranted about not participating in the swearing in ceremony until the court gave its verdict on the petition filed by NASA regarding Uhuru’s re-election.
NASA filed their petition, claiming that the IEBC systems were hacked to give Uhuru a win, and have since then referred to the president and his deputy as ‘computer generated leaders’. Uhuru Kenyatta, in a 10 page affidavit filed in response to NASA’s 25,000 page suit, claimed Raia Odinga is disparaging their name and that they had won because Kenyans had voted for them.
They also based their win on the strategies they implemented to win over opposition perceived strongholds. The hearing conferences are set to begin this weekend and the court will make the final decision that cannot be challenged.
