Raila: I will not accept results of a rigged election

The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) leader Raila Odinga has insisted that he will never accept results of a rigged election come August.
Speaking in Diani Kwale on Wednesday after launching mass voter registration campaign, Raila said he has information from credible sources that Jubilee is registering foreigners in a bid to confuse Kenyans and eventually rig the August polls.

Secret voters’ roll

He insisted that the National Intelligence Service (NIS) is being used by the Government to register foreigners and especially Ethiopians and Ugandans so they can be included in a secret voters’ roll.
“Why are we having a lot of discrepancies in the ongoing mass voter registration exercise? It is simply because some BVR kits are in Ethiopia and others in Uganda so they can register foreigners in the name of Kenyans in Diaspora,” added the ODM Party leader.
Raila made similar remarks on Tuesday during a mass voter registration sensitization exercise in Kilifi.
“Two other people have used my own Identity card to register as voters. What about myself?” posed the opposition leader.
Raila appealed to the Coastal residents to remain in opposition adding that all measures have been put in place to ensure the August poll is free, fair and credible.

Make Jubilee a one-term Government

On his part, Mombasa Governor Hassan Ali Joho said that opposition will remain firm and make Jubilee a one-term government.
He also urged IEBC not to be misused by Jubilee to interrupt the ongoing voter registration.
“We know this is a created problem and not a genuine case. How can we have over 128,926 people sharing identity card numbers in just a single week of the mass voter registration?” questioned the Mombasa Governor.
The leaders, alongside Kilifi Governor Amason Jeffa Kingi, Kilifi Women Rep Aisha Jumwa and Mvita legislator Abdulswamda Sharif Nassir later held a similar exercise at Tudor and Changamwe later in the evening.
Raila is touring the Western region from Thursday to sensitise local residents on voter registration.
