The National Super Alliance Presidential Candidate Raila Odinga has regretted that Jubilee’s hand in “stolen” August 8 elections had delayed them and their work of delivering Kenyans to the promised land.
Addressing a huge crowd at Malaba Dispensary in Teso North on Sunday, Raila said they are still holding the numerous promises NASA had promised Kenyans in their pocket because of the malpractices that led to the annulment of the Presidential polls.
” We were due to launch free secondary education in September but the repeat polls had delayed their resolve. We promised the elderly good token and single parents mothers special funds starting September.
We were also due to build an industrial park in Busia with equipment and training centre for the youth reminiscent of those of Korea, Malasia and India. This will create job opportunities for the unemployed youth,” he said.
Raila said Uhuru had plans to send Maraga parking if he wins his second term in office. ” But before he does that Kenyans should say no to his schemes and send him parking during the repeat presidential polls on October 26.
The NASA leader promised to return clearing and forwarding duties on the Kenyan side of the border to save thousands of clearing agents who lost their jobs because of the archaic laws passed by East African Community Member states.
He assured NASA supporters that the CANAAN Express journey to Jerusalem is on course and weather the Jubilee Misri Express likes it or not they will reach the promised land.
Raila thanked the people of Teso for delivering 91 per cent of the votes to him in the August 8 elections and urged them to increase it to 95 per cent during the repeat poll next month.
NASA co-principal Moses Wetangula said Kenya was duped to allow only clearing of goods executed on the Ugandan side of the border. ” The Protocol under the single entry permit dictates that clearing of goods is done in Uganda when goods enter Kenya and vice versa.”
Raila said Paul Otuoma and Ababu Namwamba were too junior for him to respond to their flimsy allegations saying Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong and Budalangi MP Ababu Namwamba can handle them.
ODM Deputy Party Leader Wycliffe Oparanya said the losers in the elections including Otuoma, and Ababu had betrayed the Luhyas by joining Jubilee, adding the two and more others had signed their political obituaries.
Musalia Mudavadi likened Ababu and Otuoma’s move to join Jubilee to a man who snatched their wives and offered them jobs of cooks and watchmen.
Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong told Jubilee to expect shocking statistics during the repeat polls saying Uhuru’s votes in Busia will drop from 34,000 to less than 5,000.
