National Super Alliance (NASA) flag bearer Raila Odinga has revealed that he will borrow Tanzania President John Pombe Magufuli’s style of leadership, where there will be zero tolerance to corruption.
Ever since taking the instruments of power, the Tanzania head of state has cracked the whip on corrupt government officials, sacking senior government officers over connection to graft.
Raila vowed that when he takes over power, he will break corrupt cartels that surround President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy President William Ruto, warning Jubilee prepare for a battle similar to that between a baboon and a dog. “We will sack all the corrupt individuals in Jubilee government that have sunk this economy to its lowest ebb,” he said.
The former Prime Minister accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of protecting corrupt individuals in his government against prosecution, adding that corruption has doubled under Uhuru’s watch.
Speaking during a campaign trail in Siaya County on Monday, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leaders asked NASA supporters to turn out in large numbers as it was the only way they will be able to send the corrupt Jubilee regime home and usher in a new Country under his leadership.
Amani National Coalition (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi called on those who abandoned NASA to contest as independents to shelve their ambitions and lower themselves, just as he and other principals did and left the presidency for Raila. ‘If I decided to shelve my presidential ambitions, including Kalonzo Musyoka, to support Raila, why not you” Mudavadi asked.
