“We are challenging the national government and the security bodies to explain to us, Kenyans, why they are training civilians in an exercise that is currently going on in Embakasi Barracks. We also urge the military to stick to their values of protecting our country from external enemies and seize from being involved in matters 2017 general elections,” said Odinga.
“Since the High Court ruled in April that presidential election results declared at the constituency is final, Jubilee has turned to using Intelligence and security officers to influence the august elections. We, NASA, have information that more than 120 military officers are currently hosted at the defunct provincial offices in Kakamega County so as they will be recruited by IEBC as polling officials in the ongoing recruitment process,” added Mr. Odinga.
