Raila kicks off campaign to eject Chiloba out of office
NASA leader Raila Odinga will carry out nationwide campaigns against the IEBC to bar it from conducting the October 17 repeat poll.
Raila alongside NASA principals Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi declared the current IEBC unfit to conduct any polls without a serious purge of officials who abetted the bungling of August 8 polls.
“We launch our campaigns against any elections held by IEBC commissioners as constituted. We shall go around the country sensitising people about the IEBC,” Raila announced on Sunday.
He said they will criss cross the country in a campaign to explain to their supporters why the current commission cannot be trusted to oversee a free, fair election.
“Why should Kenya trust these institutions? Is it because the IEBC went to a retreat and buried their hatchet? Is it because Safran gave itself a clean bill?” Raila posed.
“Is it because IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba answered the Chebukati memo and gave it to DP William Ruto?”
Raila maintained that commissioner Abdi Guliye, CEO Ezra Chiloba and nine other officials must exit before the October 17 repeat polls.
“The 10 individuals including the CEO who bungled the elections must resign for any election to be held,” he said.
Raila claimed the electoral agency and the Jubilee Party are partners in crime and must be reformed through a consultative process before conducting any other poll.
“Ruto told us that Chiloba had answered the memo but neither NASA or the public knows that Chiloba had responded. This is disturbing, IEBC and Jubilee are partners in crime, the two need each other,” he said.
