NASA Presidential candidate,Raila Odinga has given up on his tough stand against the IEBC. The opposition leader has reportedly withdrawn from the race and is now demanding for fresh elections.
Raila Odinga says, the decision is in Kenya’s interest and is “a win-win for everyone”.
The former Prime Minister says, his withdrawal is the only way Kenya will have a free and fair election as per the laws.
This comes after weeks of demonstrations to oust the IEBC chairman,Ezra Chebukati who is accused for the malpractices during the 2017 general elections where President Uhuru Kenyatta was announced as the winner.
In his statement, Raila Odinga insists that the IEBC has stonewalled meaningful deliberations on necessary reforms to ensure the election is free and fair.
“It has wasted valuable time engaging in public relations exercises intended to create the illusion of motion without any movement,” he said.
Raila reveals that NASA has come to the conclusion that there is no intention on the part of the IEBC to undertake any changes to its operations and personnel.
NASA supporters have been demonstrating outside the Anniversary Towers offices countrywide for weeks calling for reforms but as it seems, they is no hope left.
“All indications are that the election scheduled for October 26 will be worse than the previous one.”
Now that,he seems to have given up on the fight towards the imancipation of millions of Kenyans,we can only hope things will get better with time.
The current law-makers have unfortunately shown us that, they don’t really care about us, after demanding an increase in their numerations, only God will help us now.
Some NASA affiliated politicians have already crossed over to the Jubilee Party, in what Raila says is being catered for via a fund.
Former Wiper man Hassan Omar after resigning has decided to join the Uhuru led party.
