Opposition Chief Raila Odinga now claims that Jubilee has embarked on an elaborate scheme to scuttle National Super Alliance (NASA).
Addressing Nasa allied MPs in a closed door meeting in Nairobi on Saturday, Raila said Jubilee is targeting to 'buy' key Nasa leaders as part of the strategy to kill the opposition outfit.
He warned the leaders against falling for the well calculated scheme by the ruling party.
Other tactics President Uhuru's team plans to use include promising top government appointments, huge cash offers as well as intimidation to leaders who refuse to cooperate, the former Prime Minister said as reported by Daily Nation.
Raila said among those in Jubilee's scout list include himself, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Nasa principals Musalia Mudavadi and senator Moses Wetang’ula.
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) alleged that he had already been approached with Sh25 billion by operatives connected to the regime, in a bid to force him to retirement.
“Jubilee Party is watching our every step. They want to know Raila’s every move and I am sure they are listening to what I am saying here,” He said as quoted by Daily Nation.
He added the offer further included being appointed as Kenya’s ambassador-at-large to assigned with top international duties.
“Somebody came to me with Sh3 billion so that I go into retirement. He later increased the figure to Sh5 billion, later Sh10 billion and finally to Sh25 billion. But I kicked the person out the way Jesus mocked the devil with his temptation,” he said, adding that similar attempts had been made on Mr Mudavadi.
He added: “The ultimate aim of all these schemes is to make Kenya a one-party state. They will tell you Kenya does not need multipartism.”
In another revelation, Raila claimed that the ruling party had also courted Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka after realizing he is struggling with a problem. Raila did not, however, reveal the problem the former Vice-President was facing.
“They know our brother Kalonzo [Mr Musyoka] is having problems that...” he said without revealing the nature of the problem, saying it will not be a surprise if government operatives took advantage of the situation to approach the Wiper Party leader.
“They will then dangle a position in the cabinet and thereafter raid Wiper to ensure his MPs cross over to Jubilee Party because their aim is to create a single party state and eventually remove presidential term limits.”
“The Jubilee regime is watching our every move. It is following every pronouncement Raila is making as part of this elaborate scheme whose purpose is to weaken the opposition and ensure the national resistance movement does not fly,” he said when he addressed the Nasa Parliamentary Group meeting at Wiper Party headquarters.
Raila also made reference to Deputy President William Ruto remarks while in an interview with CNN last week. The DP said Jubilee was ready to dialogue with Raila, but only on his retirement package.
“You have heard them say Raila is too old and he should retire from politics; that the only thing we can discuss with him is his retirement package. I don’t need such dialogue because my retirement package is in the law that President Kenyatta has refused to implement,” he said.
He told the MPs: “You must remain strong because this is a battle to win but only if we have the unity of purpose. This is a battle to win. It is the beginning of the end."
