NASA presidential campaign coordinator in Kisii has accused ODM leaders in the region of sidelining the coalition’s affiliate parties.
Richard Onyonka – Kitutu Chache South MP, said Ford-K, Wiper, Amani, KNC, and CCM have not been roped in campaigns for next month’s polls.
He said the situation undermines NASA campaigns and is working for the benefit of their Jubilee Party competitors ahead of August 8 election.
The Ford-K deputy party leader asked the five NASA principals to resolve the issue before it costs the entity votes.
NASA comprises of Raila Odinga (ODM), Kalonzo Musyoka (Wiper), Musalia Mudavadi (ANC), Moses Wetangula (Ford-K) and Isaac Rutto (CCM).
The legislator on Sunday reminded ODM that it had only 45 candidates vying for MCA in the county compared to the other parties which have over 290 hopefuls.
He spoke during a fundraising for the construction of the Kisii Town Catholic Church at Nyambera Primary School.
“ODM leaders are seeking votes on the six-piece vote call. This is despite us agreeing to work together during a meeting at Itibo Resort in Bonchari last month.”
The MP urged Kisii residents not to get involved in retrogressive politics but to vote for the person whom they feel is best suited to serve them.
The legislator, who defected from ODM to Ford-K three months ago, expressed confidence of being re-elected for a third term in parliament.
Meanwhile, their Jubilee counterparts appealed to the electorate to vote for the party saying the government had proved capable of running the country.
Jubilee woman rep candidate Doris Donya, speaking at the same event, urged the electorate to make sure they are not left out of the government.
The politicians appealed for peaceful campaigns for the forthcoming elections. A total of Sh3.2 million was realised.
