Supporters of Kenyan main opposition party National Super Alliance (NASA) have defied the calls by their leaders to stay away from work today in protest of what NASA called ‘rigged’ election results.
According to Capital FM reporter in Nairobi Kennedy Kangathe who spoke on Onua Fm’s morning show ‘Yen Nsem Pa’, the press conference held by the opposition leaders to impress upon their supporters to stay away from work today seem to have no effects as many of them spoken to, have said it is time to move on since the elections are over.
“Many of the supporters we have spoken to on the streets of Nairobi said it is time to move on, even reports coming from the NASA stronghold Kisumu are not different as most of them were either going to work or were at work” Kennedy Kangathe narrated to Bright Kwesi Asempa on Monday morning.
Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga at a press conference called on their supporters to stay away from work on Monday and accused the government of having planned to rig elections and murder his supporters. Raila was quoted as saying “Jubilee party has spilt the blood of innocent people. Tomorrow there is no work”
However, Capital FM reporter in Nairobi Kennedy Kangathe said soon after the presser by the leaders of NASA, government party had also held a counter, calling on the Kenyans to disregard such ‘unpatriotic’ directives and help move the country forward.
Meanwhile, if no last minute hitches occur, the elected President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta will be sworn into office for his last term on 29th August 2017
