Nairobi, Kenya, Aug 5 – The National Super Alliance’s (NASA) final rally held at Uhuru Park before Tuesday’s elections was marked with pomp and colour where a mammoth crowd showed up in what looked like the battle of the crowds.
In what has been termed as a make or break elections for NASA’s presidential candidate Raila Odinga’s ambition, most of the speakers emphasized that voter turn out is the key to winning the August 8th elections.
When the main man of the occasion came to the podium to speak, the air was filled with “Uhuru Must Go’ chants.
“Votes will be cast on the August of 8th and Raila is number eight. But when it reaches the 9th of August, Raila will be number one,” he said to a cheering crowd.
Raila who exuded confidence that they will take over power from the government noted that all the eight regions of the country have said “Raila and Kalonzo Tosha.”
“I want to urge Kenyans from all the horns of this country. we have talked to everybody in every province and they have said Raila-Kalonzo tosha,” he said.
He also urged their foot soldiers to come out in large numbers saying that they can’t win an election without their votes.
Speaking at the venue, Raila’s running mate Kalonzo Musyoka said that Uhuru Kenyatta should be prepared to be an opposition leader.
“It doesn’t matter what’s going on. Everyone must come out and vote. We must come out at 99.9 percent,” Kalonzo said.
“As NASA we are up to the task. We will show the Jubilee government how to run a country,” Moses Wetangula who is a NASA principal added.
“I want to urge those who might have travelled upcountry for fear of violence with their votes. Come back and vote,” he added.
The crowd went into a frenzy when the celebrated Tanzanian Musician better known as Ali Kiba joined the podium while singing his hit song Aje.
Raila is attempting the Presidency for the fourth time and hopes that this time round, he will be successful.
