A statement allegedly written by NASA Co-principal and Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has gone viral on social media, creating speculations of imminent confusion in the National Super Alliance (NASA) camp.
In the letter ,yet to be authenticated by Mkenya Forums, Kalonzo seems to differ with NASA plans to boycott in the repeat presidential election slated for October 26th.
Instead, the Wiper party leader is calling upon Kenyans to exercise their democratic right and turn out in droves to vote.
“The right to vote is perhaps the only time Kenyan people get to exercise their sovereignty directly. Not to vote as a citizen, as right as it may be, is however sadly to cede the right to participate and determine your future to others. You not only lose an opportunity to determine yourself but the grounds to make a claim on anything political in the country.
“Therefore, I urge all Kenyans to show up and take up their rights in the coming election. The right to vote is a birthright for every Kenyan and which the Kenyan constitution guarantees.” read the letter in part.
In the alleged missive , the former Vice President also refutes claims that he ailing.
“I am indeed well and wish to dispel rumors of motivated by ill will, or otherwise, and assure the Kenyan people that I am indeed well, of good health and robust in mind,” the purported letter read.
Kalonzo has been missing in the political scene after he traveled to Germany for undisclosed duties.
However, on Monday Kalonzo talked to NASA supporters through a phone call from Germany during a campaign tour in Kisii, where he urged them not to participate in the elections.
“There is no need to continue with an election that is already rigged. Raila Tibim,” Kalonzo said.
At the same time, Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua poked holes on Kalonzo’s long silence noting that he does not support the call by NASA leader Raila Odinga not to vote on October 26.
“He does not want to be caught in the violence mix which can land him before the ICC,” Mutua told journalists.
