Why Raila and Kalonzo Cannot Participate in the Anti-IEBC Demos

National Super Alliance (NASA) Co-Principal Kalonzo Musyoka has revealed why the opposition leaders have not been showing up since during the anti-IEBC demos.

In an exclusive interview with Saturday Standard,Kalonzo rubbished claimed that Raila Odinga and him have failed show up because the government withdrew their security detail,hence keeping off for safety reasons..
Instead, he said they have made the decision simply because they are candidates in the repeat election.
“Our supporters are our security, we feel safe when we mingle with them,” Kalonzo said as quoted by Standard.
He, however, condemned Jubilee administration’s decision to withdraw their security, saying the government is deliberately endangering their lives ahead of the repeat poll
Kalonzo claimed that it was actually Jubilee that was not keen on the poll and it can be proved by impeding blocks that they were putting in the way to thwart free and fair elections.
“When you withdraw the security of a presidential candidate and his deputy during the campaign period and introduce malicious amendments to election laws, this clearly shows that they are trying to frustrate the election process. The situation is such that Kenyatta and Ruto must pray for us that no one is hurt, because there will be no elections,” Kalonzo added.
The Constitution, in article 138 (8b) provides for the security od Presidential candidates and the former vice president wondered why they left them with only two officers.
Interior CS Fred Matiang’i vowed not to summon back their security detail,arguing that they were being misused.
