We will push for reforms until President Uhuru Kenyatta steps down, says Raila

By Alex Wakhisi | December 4th 2017

The Opposition's National Super Alliance (NASA) will continue pushing for reforms and ensure that President Uhuru Kenyatta is removed from power.

The alliance maintained that it would continue with its 'resist and boycott' agenda until their grievances were addressed.

NASA leader Raila Odinga blamed Uhuru for destroying the country by using police officers to kill Opposition supporters.

NASA maintains it does not recognise Uhuru’s government.

“We will not allow leaders who have imposed themselves on the people to continue destroying this nation,” Raila told supporters in Kakamega town on Sunday.

The Opposition chief, who earlier attended the Cecafa opening football match between Kenya and Rwanda at Bukhungu Stadium, claimed Jubilee Party had threatened the Judiciary and manipulated the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to favour them (Jubilee).

Not relent

Raila, who was accompanied by Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, said NASA would not relent in pushing for reforms in the country.

He claimed at least 215 NASA supporters had been killed by police since the August 8 elections.

“When I returned from the US, 18 people were killed by police. We buried some of them over the weekend,” he said, adding they would take Uhuru head on until he relinquished power.

The Opposition chief did not yield to demands from hundreds of supporters who wanted him to address them at the stadium. However, he addressed those in the town as his convoy made its way through.

Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in the county for this year’s Cecafa tournament.

According to County Sports Executive Robert Sumbi, there is tight security at the stadium, in the town and around hotels being used by visiting teams.
