NASA appeals to Nairobi electorate as Jubilee campaigns in Garissa, Isiolo

NASA will hold two rallies in Nairobi on Sunday/COURTESY

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 23 – The National Super Alliance principals will this afternoon hold two rallies in Nairobi after first attending a church service and giving a press briefing at Orange House.

The rallies will be held at the Joseph Kang’ethe grounds and Masinde Muliro grounds in Mathare.

This follows their campaigns in Lamu and Tana River counties on Saturday where they accused the government of seeking to use the dusk-to-dawn curfew in place to depress voter turnout.

While the Coalition says it will not challenge the Court of Appeal ruling that Dubai firm Al Ghurair can go ahead with the printing of presidential ballots, they say they will not condone a failure of the electronic system of identification of voters and transmission of results despite a High Court ruling that the polls should then proceed manually.

On Saturday, Siaya Senator James Orengo James Orengo said NASA would also be moving forward with its plans to Adopt a Polling Station irrespective of Acting Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangis warnings against it.

President Uhuru Kenyatta on the other hand leads Jubilee Party campaigns in Garissa and Isiolo.

Before hitting the campaign trail, President Kenyatta took questions from Kenyans on social media in a Facebook live session that was intended to tackle unemployment and the high cost of living.

He has also told the story of how he met the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta, touched on security during the polls and corruption.

It is still unclear whether President Kenyatta will participate in Monday’s presidential debate following complaints from State House that they were not adequately consulted.
