National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Musalia Mudavadi has ridiculed the influence of Jubilee defectors who failed to deliver in Western.
Speaking in a function at Sabatia Primary School, Mudavadi said the combined efforts of former Governor Moses Akaranga, former Vihiga MP Yusuf Chanzu, former National Assembly speaker Kenneth Marende and former Hamisi MP Vincent Mmaitsi could not even help Jubilee Party get 10,000 votes in Vihiga’s 272,000 total votes.
“Right now, our brothers who were bought by the money Jubilee are borrowing and piling the debt on Kenyans, can no longer call their Jubilee operatives because their worth has been known. They have no influence whatsoever in this region that is firmly in NASA.
I want to thank my people for resisting the buffoonery that Jubilee government is trying to impose on them through a few of their supporters here who failed in the election for the positions they were vying for,” said Mudavadi on Sunday (12/11/17).
The Supreme Court is set to begin hearing three petitions filed to challenge the validity of the October 26 repeat presidential poll boycotted by Opposition leader Raila Odinga, even though his name was retained on the ballot conducted by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
Of the three petitions, one was jointly filed by activists Njonjo Mue and Khelef Khalifa, the other two by former Kilome MP Harun Mwau and the Institute for Democratic Governance.
The petitioners argue that the repeat poll was not conducted within the confines of the law, and was largely marred by violence in some parts of the country—while others say there ought to have been fresh nomination of the candidates.
It is the second time the Supreme Court will be convening next week to hear a presidential petition this year, after nullifying the August 8 presidential election due to irregularities and illegalities in a case filed by NASA leader Raila who lost to incumbent President-elect Uhuru Kenyatta.
