NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka at a past campaign event
National Super Alliance (NASA) leaders led by Presidential candidate Raila Odinga say that the Court of Appeal ruling allowing a Dubai-based firm Al Ghurair to print presidential ballot papers will not shake them.
Speaking at Kiusyani Market in Kitui County, Raila and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka said that the ruling will not prevent them from winning the forthcoming elections. The two said that they put in place measures to ensure there would be no rigging.
"Kenyans have lost trust in the Jubilee government and that is why despite the ruling, we are going flat out to win this election. The measures we have put in place will ensure results reflect the will of the people," Kalonzo said.
"Out agents will be keen and their work will be to count our votes. We shall win this time round," said Raila.
"At 8am on August 8, Kenyans led by Joshua and Caleb, will cross River Jordan, and by 10am we will enter the city of Jericho before storming Jerusalem by noon," Raila added.
On the other hand, the ruling Jubilee Party welcomed the ruling, terming it a victory for Kenyans who are keen to take part in the upcoming elections.
"Kenyans have had to suffer relentless court cases and conspiracies from Raila Odinga and his cohort against the elections. The people of Kenya will be having an election on August 8," Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju said.
Tuju hit out at the opposition, saying that their continued onslaught on the IEBC indicated that they had sensed defeat.
"The fact that we have been made to witness, for over a year, the ramblings and trickery of Raila trying to discredit the elections in a last-ditch attempt to grab power is a sad reflection of a man once considered one of Kenya's greatest reformers," he said.
