Kalonzo on Saturday said the current political events where long-serving leaders have had to exit is a clear indication that NASA’s quest for electoral justice is on the right path.
He spoke during the burial of Makueni Governor Kivutha Kibwana’s brother in-law Prof Lenno Mbaga in Kikambala, Kilifi county.
The NASA principal also cited the fall of Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe and the recent resignation Ethiopian Prime Minister Hailemarian Desalegn.
“Mugabe left office after clinging to power for far too long. No life was lost during his exit because the people of Zimbabwe felt it was time for change,” Kalonzo said.
“Zuma tried to resist but he was forced to. In this country, the people shall also decide and push some people out of office.”
He said the developments in the African nations “should serve as an eye opener for Kenyan politicians who think they will rule the country forever.”
Kalonzo has been on the spot after skipping the swearing in of Raila Odinga as the people’s president on January 30.
But on this, he asked NASA supporters not to be distracted from the fight for electoral justice.
He has maintained that his absence at the fete, which was also skipped by Musalia Mudavadi (Amani National Congress) and Ford Kenya’s Moses Wetang’ula, was a strategy.
Dismissing claims that the coalition is on the verge of collapse, Kalonzo said the NASA team is united and focused to propel its agenda forward.
He said the coalition will hold its national summit to address on the pending issues before embarking on his swearing in as the deputy people’s president.
The NASA alliance has raised fears that Jubilee is planning to increase the number of polling stations in order to rig the elections in August – Kalonzo Musyoka observed that the number of polling stations in Kenya keeps increasing and the IEBC is not giving a definate number – He said that Jubilee was planning to increase the number of polling stations in opposition strongholds and give Jubilee an upper hand – Kalonzo also revealed that Jubilee used an underground cable to connect the TNA tallying centre to the National tallying centre that helped in rigging – Previously, NASA also contested the award of the ballot printing tender to the Dubai based firm Al Ghurair citing its links to Uhuru Kenyatta The NASA alliance has accused the IEBC yet again of working with Jubilee to rig the August General Election.

During the year now ending, the people of Kitui County have received many blessings from God for which we must be most grateful.

I call on both the County and National governments to play their role fully and ensure that these challenges are fully addressed.
2017 will be the year of elections. And I will be asking the people of Kitui County to elect me as their governor this time round under the Wiper party. As National Chair of Wiper party, I pledge to do everything possible to ensure that our party nominations shall be free and fair.

I wish all aspirants success.
MAY GOD ALMIGHTY

Wiper Democratic Movement plans to win seven parliamentary and 24 MCA seats in Nairobi next years general elections
Wiper has already mapped out its strongholds in Nairobi, where it wants to capture elective seats.
The plan called “24/7” is spearheaded by Nairobi Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke. Mueke is also the coordinator of the Wiper party’s activities in the city.
The party’s strongholds are in the four Embakasi constituencies (South, East, West and Central).
“That is where we are the dominant registered voters and can vote as a block,” Embakasi East MP aspirant Fred Musau said.
Mueke’s team wants ODM to support Wiper candidates in the selected constituencies.
The deputy governor wants to execute the plan to assert the party’s strength in Nairobi, as he prepares for his 2022 governor’s bid.
He is leading drives to ensure the party supporters register as voters.
“We have our supporters scattered in many constituencies, including Kibra, where we are not interested,” Musau said.
Other constituencies Wiper wants to take are Makadara, Lang’ata and Mathare.
Wiper will field Joshua Kitivi and nominated Senator Judith Sijeny for the Makadara and Lang’ata parliamentary seats, respectively. Sijeny will be running against ODM’s Joash Olum.
