The National Super Alliance (NASA), through co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka, announced changes in their strategy to ensure their presidential votes are not stolen.
Speaking at a rally in Kisumu on Thursday, July 3, the Wiper party leader also urged their supporters to turn out in large numbers and vote for the coalition come August 8.
Kalonzo reiterated that they are still keen to ensure that votes cast in favour of their presidential candidate Raila Odinga are not stolen during the hotly-contested polls that is only three days away.
Speaking on behalf of the other Nasa chiefs, Kalonzo urged voters to go home after voting but return to the polling centres during counting.
This is in contradiction to what Raila has been preaching to his supporters. The coalition had laid out the adopt-a-polling station strategy where each of the 40,883 centres were going to be manned by five Nasa supporters at a total cost of KSh 410million.
This, according to the Nasa leaders, would go along way to curb rigging, and boost their chances of taking leadership.
But while addressing Jubilee supporters in Wote, Makueni County where he took his reelection campaigns on Wednesday, August 2, President Uhuru Kenyatta said:
“You should not hang around polling stations after voting. Vote and go home.”
IEBC is also opposed to the strategy by the Opposition, warning their supporters that the law requires that unauthorised persons should remain 400m away from the polling centres.
