Deputy President William Ruto and his Jubilee lieutenants are on an Opposition leaders mocking spree following the Wednesday, January 11, Bomas meeting where they officially birthed the National Super Alliance (NASA).
If you missed it, the Opposition converged and declared that they will be forming a united force with the sole aim of sending President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Jubilee government home on August 8, and before noon.
Raila Odinga and his stalwarts vowed to do whatever they can to ensure that their supporters register as voters in their masses, at the same time warning Jubilee against using the newly-passed amendments to election laws to steal the forthcoming General Election.
Uhuru’s number two has however come out to dismiss yesterday’s declaration, labeling the Opposition leaders a bunch of losers keen on creating positions for themselves.
“They have nothing new to offer Kenyans. They are just interested in creating positions for themselves to achieve their selfish ends,” DP Ruto said as quoted in The Standard.
His number one supporter Aden Duale, who is the Leader of Majority in the National Assembly, and his Senate counterpart Kithure Kindiki, echoed his sentiments.
According to the two politicians, Nasa leaders; Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula, and Musalia Mudavadi, have all appeared on the ballot on previous occasions and lost and therefore should expect another loss.
“All those who were at Bomas were in the ballot in the last elections and we beat them. They can choose now to compete with us as a group or as individuals but we will still trounce them,” a confident Duale noted.
On the other hand, Kindiki noted that the only important thing the Opposition leaders said at Bomas was not to take to the streets to demonstrate. The latter had threatened to round up its supporters to protest against Jubilee unfairly using it’s numbers to pass faulty electoral laws.
