NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 25 – A section of Jubilee MPs now claim that Opposition leader Raila Odinga has sensed defeat in the General Election and has resorted to blaming crucial institution for failure to rally his supporters to register as voters.
The MPs led by Majority Leader Aden Duale claimed that Raila Odinga was keen on maligning all institutions he thinks led to the 2013 elections going against his favour.
“The way you challenged me to produce the list of Al Shabaab suspects, tell Raila Odinga to produce the list of NIS agents. He must tell, who are these NIS officers, which BVR kits, which regions? We want to see the Ugandans and Ethiopians live.”
“We challenge Raila Odinga… we dare you, that you have become a warmonger, you have become a liar,” Duale stated.
The Garissa Township legislator dismissed the claims that foreigners were being registered to vote in the August General Election.
Odinga on Tuesday released a statement to the media alleging that the National Intelligence Service was interfering with the ongoing Mass Voter Registration exercise by listing foreigners from Ethiopia and Uganda.
The government however described the claims as malicious and only intended to undermine the voter registration process, while maligning public institutions.
Duale equally dismissed the claims, instead urging the Opposition to stop issuing threats of violence aimed at intimidating and blackmailing Kenyans as the country heads into the elections.
He said Opposition leaders were constantly talking of stealing of elections instead of first asking people to register as voters and subsequently asking for their votes.
“You are telling us that if you steal you will see, what are we going to see?” The Majority Leader asked.
