The National Super Alliance (NASA) has warned Jubilee that their attempts to divide the Western region will hit a hard rock, as Western was solidly behind Raila Odinga’s candidature.
The opposition leaders said that Jubilee has been working to ensure that the Luhya community does not vote as a bloc in the August 8 elections, after fears that they will lose to the opposition.
Speaking during campaign tour to Busia County, NASA co-principal and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula said that Jubilee was using Bungoma Governor Ken Lusaka, Budalang'i Member of Parliament Ababu Namwamba and Water Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa to divide the Luhya voting bloc.
Wetangula accused the three of joining Jubilee in order to enrich themselves at the expense of Luhya community interests.
The senator said that told Jubilee to prepare for a rude shock, as for the first time in history, Western Kenya will solidly back one presidential candidate.
"Do not stay at home and hope Raila will win without your vote. Come out in large numbers and vote to guarantee us victory," said Wetang'ula. "I sympathize with MPs from Western who have been cheated to join Jubilee because their days are numbered," he added.
Raila and Kalonzo dismissed projects launched by the Jubilee government in western Kenya, saying that they had either not taken off, or were Grand Coalition government’s brainchild.
"Most of the projects that Jubilee launched in Western have not taken off. This government does not mean well for the region," Kalonzo said.
"Recently, Uhuru came here to commission Sigiri Bridge, which was my brainchild. He is the one who refused to release the money when he was serving as Finance minister," Raila Said.
