President Uhuru Kenyatta has exuded confidence that he will win the August 8 elections in a landslide, adding that his main rival in the National Super Alliance stand no chance against him.
"In 2013, we defeated Raila and his team, who were in Government. Today, we are the Government. They should be ready for another defeat. We are sending them into permanent retirement from politics," said Uhuru, adding it would be a landslide win.
The head of state was speaking in his tour of Busia County on Wednesday, a region widely perceived to be an Opposition stronghold.
Uhuru called on the Opposition to give the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) room to deliver the August elections, saying that they should stop the wars with the poll body and face the electorate for votes.
This president’s sentiments come at a time when NASA brigade raised concerns over the awarding of ballot printing tender to a Dubai firm, Al Ghurair, which it alleges has links with President Uhuru’s family.
"I tell my brother Raila to stop excuses and sell his agenda. Leave the IEBC to do its work, because, the commission doesn't have votes. Jubilee does not need to interfere with IEBC to win." Uhuru added.
The President challenged Busia and the Luhya community to start identifying new leaders, adding that NASA co-principals Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang'ula will rot in political oblivion after the August polls.
