Siaya Senator James Orengo
Siaya Senator James Orengo has been named the National Super Alliance (NASA) chief agent in the upcoming presidential and general elections.
Orengo will take up the crucial role after leading ‘successful’ court battles for NASA against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in recent months and will be deputized by NASA Chief Executive Officer Norman Magaya.
In a statement to the press on Friday, Head of Operations and Delivery of National Super Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga Campaign Secretariat, Joe Ager said the coalition had already submitted the names of Orengo and Magaya to the Electoral Commission.
Ager said that the early appointment of Senator Orengo indicated the overall state of preparedness by NASA for Presidential and General Election on August 8 2017.
“The coalition is ready for the 8th August 2017 elections which NASA expects to win by a large enough margins that it will be futile for Jubilee to try and rig the process,” Ager added.
“I urge all NASA polling agents, constituency polling agents and supporters in general to be prepared to turn out with one accord on 8 August; vote in force, meticulously protect the vote and deliver a resounding victory in order to deliver Kenya from the stifling misrule of Jubilee,” Ager said.
