Mudavadi says police harassed supporters
  • NASA presidential candidate failed to take part in the October 26 repeat polls since the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission did not work on the irregularities and illegalities tabled.
  • They also withdrew because their supporters were bribed into supporting Jubilee.

Principal of National Super Alliance (NASA) Musalia Mudavadi responded to a suit by Njonjo Mue and Khalef Khalifa by explaining why NASA leader Raila Odinga withdrew from the race for the presidency during the October 26 repeat poll.

He said his party maintains that the elections were neither free, fair nor credible and it supports all the petitions seeking to nullify the results.

NASA presidential candidate and his Deputy Kalonzo Musyoka dropped out of the race just days to the elections day.

These are the reasons that Musalia gave for his party’s candidate’s withdrawal;

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision (IEBC) failed to correct the illegalities and irregularities cited by NASA ahead of the elections.

Foreign envoys acting as public relations officers held IEBC hostage together with Jubilee Party.

Jubilee Party, led by President Uhuru Kenyatta withdrew the security of NASA presidential candidates

NASA supporters were bribed and coerced into supporting Jubilee.

The Government intimidated Supreme Court judges including Judge Maraga.

NASA candidates who lost during the August 8 elections were paid to support Jubilee.

The Government also unleashed police to harass NASA supporters.

He said that illegal gangs like the Nairobi Business Community were used to frustrate supporters.
