The National Super Alliance (NASA) has come up with an ingenious solution to the anti-Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission protesters’ fading energy during demos.

The Opposition will now be supplying bread, soda and water to the demonstrators during protests which will be happening daily starting this coming week.

That was said by Dagoretti North Member of Parliament Simba Arati who revealed the plan during the protests held on Wednesday, October 11, in Nairobi.

Arati’s key announcement followed one by Nasa lawyer and Senator for Siaya, James Orengo, that the alliance will now embark on daily protests starting Monday, October the 23rd, a week to the repeat presidential poll.

Orengo who was also part of the Wednesday protests said Nasa supporters will hit the streets to continue piling the pressure on the electoral agency’s CEO Ezra Chiloba and other officials to vacate office.

The Opposition wants a raft of changes made at IEBC before it can participate in the poll, including the resignation of officials who bungled the August 8 poll leading to the Supreme Court rendering it invalid, null and void.

Raila has said he has withdrawn from the race, saying Chebukati and his team have refused to act on its irreducible minimums.
