Kalonzo: consider two “grand demands” for NASA to participate poll

By Isaac kitti

Presidential running mate for NASA Coalition Kalonzo Musyoka has volunteered to put things straight to end the stalemate between Nasa and IEBC if Ezra Chiloba the Chief Executive Officer and his team of officials are removed from office.

Mr Kalonzo wants Jubilee to keep aside the amendments of the election laws they(Jubilee) have been pushing if NASA is to participate in the October 26 residential poll. His statement came after a dramatic day when demonstrations were held in Nairobi, Kisumu and Homabay counties in which property and vehicles were destroyed. The former Vice President while speaking to news reporters said he was ready in convincing his Opposition counterparts to participate in the election if the two demands were sufficiently met.

“If Chebukati sacks Chiloba today and President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy drop their mischievous agenda of Election Laws Amendment Bill currently executed on their behalf in Parliament, I am ready to request Raila we teach Jubilee a remarkably lesson in the repeat polls,” Kalonzo added. He exhibited a lot of confidence that in a free, fair and credible elections they would defeat Kenyatta and Ruto by a wider margin in the October 26th election citing that Kenyatta and his Ruto are easy to beat in a credible poll. They can go on buying people at State House but they can still floor them. “Let us have a level playing field and we will humiliate them, Kenyans are tired with them,” he said.

Kalonzo said his insight was a personal perspective and a simplified Opposition’s initial demands which comprised of eleven irreducible minimum demands they needed settled before their participation in the repeat poll necessitated by the Supreme Court nullification of the August 8th presidential election.
