NASA’s first ever rally in Kalonzo Musyoka’s backyard Kitui County was Thursday disrupted after the crowd rejected and heckled Governor Julius Malombe.
Malombe had a hard time addressing the mammoth crowd at Kitui Stadium which refused to give him audience and started chanting the political slogans of his arch-rival Charity Ngilu’s.
The coalition’s presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga watched in disbelief as the hostile crowd rejected Kalonzo’s gubernatorial favorite.
He, however, ignored the boos and urged the residents to turn out in their numbers and vite for the National Super Alliance.
While exuding confidence that the opposition coalition ill trounce Jubilee in August elections, Mr Odinga warned President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government that they will not allow even a single instant of rigging the polls as witnessed in 2013.
He also warned acting interior CS Fred Matiang’i to stop meddling with the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission as a prerequisite for free, fair, transparent and credible elections.
“IEBC is an independent agency with a clear knowledge of its constitutional mandate to conduct credible elections and hence it’s uncalled for for Matiang’i to interfere with its operations.
Raila’s sentiment were echoed by his presidential running mate and Wiper party leader H.E Dr Stephen Kalonzo who also vowed that NASA and its supporters will protect their votes at all cost.
