Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi has cautioned the Opposition against blackmailing the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission [IEBC] by asserting that it will not accept flawed elections.
He urged the National super alliance [Nasa] to stop panicking and instead put it’s house in order noting that persistent claims by the same to the effect that Jubilee was poised to rig the August polls are unfounded and a sign of conceding defeat.
Speaking in in Githunguri sub county during a voter registration mobilization tour yesterday, the senator challenged the opposition to name it’s flag bearer instead of creating confusion and fear among Kenyans by threatening to reject the forth coming general elections.
‘My advice to them is to prevail upon those in their perceived strongholds to register in large numbers so that they can have an opportunity to elect leaders of their choice but am convinced that Jubilee will bet them hands down’. said the senator who added that leaders in Kiambu county were using their own resources to mobilize locals to register.
Wamatangi noted that it was not fair for the opposition to give a raft of terms and conditions to the Wafula Wabukati led commission adding that the body is very fresh and robustly ready to conduct the elections in a free, transparent and fair way.
He said that it would be prudent for leaders across the political divide to preach peace and harmony among Kenyans as opposed to polarizing the country by dividing it along tribal lines.
Describing the opposition as a groups of power hungry individuals with no agenda for the country, he predicted that it will break down the middle upon the naming of it’s flag bearer.
‘Today they are pretending to be bosom brothers but i can assure that each one of them will go their own way when the ODM party leaders will be named as the flag bearer which is an open secret’, he said.
This as the Kamba and Luo community living in Kiambu county called upon opposition leaders to preach peace and harmony and desist from dividing the country along tribal lines.
Led by Ms Pacifica Mangi who is gunning for a civic seat in Limuru, they said that they are fully behind the jubilee government adding that the peaceful co-existence of the cosmopolitanKiambu county should not be disturbed by power hungry politicians.
‘We have lived here for many years and our immediate neighbours are from all walks of life and we live like brothers and sisters and that is why we shall support the government’, she said.
