CORD leader Raila Odinga has warned Jubilee against stealing this year’s elections saying the cost of such a move will be regrettable.
Addressing opposition members at the Bomas of Kenya on Wednesday, Raila urged opposition supporters to discard fears of Jubilee rigging elections, saying it will be impossible for Jubilee to do so.
“I wish to urge all Opposition supporters to discard the fears that Jubilee will steal the August elections. Yes Jubilee will try to steal the elections. But we shall not allow it. We shall make it impossible for anyone to steal the election. But we are also sending word to Jubilee again that the cost of stealing this election will be regrettable. Don’t try it,” Raila warned.
He said it is time for the Jubilee administration to park and go to save this country.
“We are here to agree to stop Jubilee from ruining our country beyond August 2017. Defeating Jubilee in August is not about the Opposition taking power. It is a national duty and a civic responsibility to save Kenya.
“We are here to make all of us understand that the only enemy we have and our country has, is Jubilee. Divided we shall fall and the country will continue to suffer. Only our unity shall salvage what remains of our country. We are here because we understand that simple and painful reality,” the CORD leader said.
He urged all opposition supporters who have are eligible voters but are not registered to come out in large numbers and register in order to have Jubilee defeated come the August polls.
“We will deal with election Laws – we promise you that – but YOU must all go out, in every town, village, home, church, school, bus stop every single day and not rest until everybody you meet is a registered voter to send a MASS MESSAGE to Jubilee that they must go home! It has to be done. It has been done elsewhere. It will be done here with your help and the backing of a united opposition,” Raila said.
