, NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 19 – The Jubilee Alliance presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta continued his vote hunt in Kisii County on Tuesday where he met youth groups and opinion leaders from the region before concluding his two-day tour with a public rally at the Gusii Stadium.

Kenyatta who began his tour of the region on Monday, is expected to address mini-rallies in Mosocho, Kitutu South, Kerina, Bonchari, Nyanturago, Nyangusu and Omogenda.

Speaking during a campaign stop in Nyansiongo , the Jubilee flag-bearer alleged that Odinga was out to divide the country with his allegations that the government was plotting to rig the elections in favour of Jubilee.

“Raila’s politics always confuses me. Please do not take this country back, do not divide this nation,” emphasised Kenyatta.

The deputy premier called for peace, adding that no one should be allowed to disrupt harmony or reject the election results.

He said Odinga could not be trusted with the country’s leadership because he failed to hold his ODM ‘Pentagon’ together.

“Everybody has rebelled against him; it shows there is a problem somewhere. He lacks leadership quality, a factor which has resulted to his key Pentagon allies such as William Ruto, Charity Ngilu, Joseph Nyagah and Najib Balala deserting him,” said the Jubilee leader.

Kenyatta also alleged that the rigging claims were unfounded and only calculated at inciting the electorate to reject the outcome of the presidential poll.

“You are the Prime Minister in government. Your running mate is the Vice-President in government. How then does government plan to rig and you don’t know?” he posed.

Kenyatta was accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Ongeri, former MPs Walter Nyambati, Wilfred Ombui, Jimmy Angwenyi, Joel Onyancha, Godfrey Masanya, Joyce Laboso and other aspirants.

Addressing another rally at Nyamira’s Uhuru Gardens, Kenyatta said his government will ensure that 30 percent of public procurement are awarded to the youth and women so that they can earn a livelihood.

“This is a time to give the youth of Kenya hope; show them that tomorrow is a better day,” he said.
