National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate Raila Odinga has rubbished press reports that the coalition wants to boycott August 8th general elections.
The former Prime Minister denied saying that NASA would boycott the forthcoming elections, adding that the statement, which was also attributed to Deputy President William Ruto was false. Raila said that the coalition only warned against rigging and had no reason to skip the elections, which are 10 days away.
"I did not say we will boycott elections. We can't boycott elections. I said they should not try to use the military to rig elections," he told a rally in Kajiado on Friday.
"There is no way Jubilee can win this election other than through rigging. I have told them not to try it because Kenyans will not allow such acts," he added.
This comes after NASA claimed that presidential ballot papers for the elections had already been shipped in the country by Jubilee and were hidden in a greenhouse for purposes of rigging.
Raila accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of presiding over a regime that prides itself in overseeing corruption and asked residents to vote out Jubilee. "Kenyans have a reason, the will, and the power to vote out Jubilee."
