Jubilee leaders yesterday dismissed the formation of Nasa’s National Resistance Movement (NRM) as inconsequential, saying the move was the last kicks of a dying horse.
Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso said the new outfit weaved by the Opposition on Wednesday would have no impact on the legitimacy of a legally formed government. Speaking after casting her vote at Manaret Primary School, she said despite Nasa leaders asking their supporters not to vote, a majority of Kenyans came out to take part in the exercise.
She, however, said the government should embark on a process of listening to the dissenting voices of Kenyans who feel excluded with a view to uniting them with the rest of the nation.
“We know that some of us feel left out in this process but we will strive to bring them in after the election for harmonious and peaceful coexistence in our nation.
We need one another,” she said. In Machakos, Governor Alfred Mutua trashed NRM’s intentions, saying it bears ill motives for the country. The Maendeleo Chap Chap leader said it was wrong for Nasa leadership to announce that they will mobilise their supporters to oppose President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government after the October 26 poll.
He warned Nasa leader Raila Odinga against making Kenya a war-torn country. Speaking after casting his vote at Mathatani Primary School polling station in Mavoko sub-county, Mutua told Nasa leaders to cease misleading their supporters. “The exercise is going on despite their calls to boycott the election.”
