National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga has once again told his supporters to abstain from sex ahead of the voting date on August 8 polls. The former Prime Minister told married couples to refrain from sex until after results of the presidential elections are announced. Raila said that having sex before going to ‘war’ was a bad omen and asked his supporters to adhere to his call.
Odinga further called on the youth to play a big role in the upcoming elections by camping at the polling stations to prevent Jubilee from rigging the elections.
"I challenge youths to rise up and be counted as the elections are historic. Jubilee has rigged the economy and health facilities. Youths suffer a lot," he said as reported by The Star.
"When you are going for war, sex is a bad omen," he said.
"...Ka osudo iri to kiki ing'iye, kone ni wuon ng'ane kiny wanindo gi lueny...kiny ne watim gino ka waseyudo telo." (If he moves closer to you, don't look at him, tell him we have a war to fight...let us have sex after we win the presidency).
This is not the first time the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader has urged his supporters to refrain from sex, Odinga is on the record saying that it would be a bad idea for his supporters to make love on the eve of elections date. He has asked Women to deny their husbands the conjugal rights until they win the war (elections)
