Nasa principals yesterday campaigned in Nairobi barely two days after Jubilee toured the city. Led by presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga, the principals campaigned in various parts of the city including Mathare and Embakasi.
Speaking in Mathare, Raila said Nasa was ready for elections adding that this has encouraged them to push for a free and fair process.
“They (Jubilee) are the ones that are not ready for elections and that is why they want to rig,” he said. He accused Jubilee of ruining the future of Kenya youth by failing to provide them with jobs “The future of our youth has been ruined by Jubilee.
You go to school up to university but you have no job, your future has been rigged because you have done everything right but the government lets you down, this is what we must change,” he added, sentiments that were echoed by his co-principals Moses Wetang’ula.
The Nasa candidate claimed the current leadership has ruined the economy through corruption which is what Nasa seeks to correct. “Kenya is in the super league of corruption with countries like DRC and Nicaragua. We will resuscitate the economy within three months We will do away with corruption,” said Raila.
The Nasa presidential candidate added that his administration had a special plan for single mothers which will involve creating special jobs for them to assist them raise their children.
Elsewhere, Nairobi governor Evans Kidero claimed that the ruling party is in a panic mode ahead of the August poll. Kidero alleged that Jubilee is planning to ‘sponsor’ violence in Nasa strongholds to scare away votes during elections.
“They have sensed defeat with 18 days to go and are now deploying all dirty tactics to retain power,” alleged Kidero during a church service at Africa Inland Church, Pipeline.
