We will bring back Kenya to the people – NASA
Leaders of the National Super Alliance (NASA) have expressed optimism that the opposition will unseat the ruling Jubilee Party come Tuesday, August 8, 2017 when Kenyans go to the ballot to install new leaders.
The leaders said the opposition outfit has come at an opportune time when Kenyans are yearning for change arguing that the Jubilee administration has neglected the common mwananchi.
According to the leaders, the August 8 General Election will give Kenyans a chance to vote out an administration that has only succeeded in dividing Kenyans along tribal lines and abetting theft of public resources.
Speaking during a rally held at the Nairobi’s Uhuru Park where the opposition outfit unveiled former Premier, Raila Odinga, as its presidential flag bearer, Musalia Mudavadi was a happy man as his main agenda of forming a formidable political movement has succeeded.
He urged Kenyans to vote out the President Uhuru Kenyatta-led administration, which according to him, has failed to deliver on the 2013 campaign pledges.
“NASA will put Kenya back on the root to prosperity, ensure food security, provide technological and scientific solutions to our problems as well as ensure employment opportunities for the youths,” said the Amani National Congress party leader.
Senate Minority Leader, Moses Wetangula, lamented of how Jubilee has played politics of seclusion since they came into power.
Wetangula accuses the government of initiating milestone projects only in two regions, Central Kenya and partly Rift Valley, leaving the whole of Kenya lagging behind in terms of development and distribution of national resources.
“In Western, Nyanza and Coastal regions, we don’t have roads yet in Uhuru’s backyard, there are numerous roads. NASA government will be inclusive of all tribes in Kenya,” said the Bungoma Senator.
On his part, the newest entrant in NASA, Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto, ridiculed the government of failure to manage the Kenyan economy which, according to him, has deteriorated to an all-time low.
“We must reclaim our country now by voting Jubilee out, the youth are jobless and they have failed to manage the economy, poor Kenyans are suffering while ‘wao wanakula nyama’,” said the Chama Cha Mashinani party leader.
NASA unveiled Odinga as the presidential candidate, Kalonzo Musyoka as his running mate, Musalia Mudavadi as the Premier Cabinet Secretary, while Wetangula and Ruto as deputy premier CSs.
