Here is why Chiloba’s three week leave will not bring back NASA to the October 26th poll
NASA coalition leaders have termed IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba’s decision to step aside on a three week leave ahead of the October 26th repeat presidential election as ‘too little too late’. The leaders argue that this move is a public relations gimmick aimed at hoodwinking Kenyans that the NASA coalition irreducible minimums have been met.
The embattled CEO’s decision to be away during the repeat polls comes barely 48 hours after the commission chairman Wafula Chebukati publicly came out to demand the stepping aside of commission officials mentioned in the report that led to the nullification of the August 8th presidential elections result.
Mr. Chebukati had early this week in his statement indicated that he was not able to guarantee a credible election if the repeat exercise was conducted with the officials ‘adversely’ mentioned still serving at the electoral body.
Speaking in Bondo this morning, NASA Coalition leader Raila Odinga said the IEBC CEO’s leave from the commission has no effect to the demands of the NASA brigade for reforms in the electoral body.
‘Mr. Chiloba’s leave is simply a decoy, it doesn’t mean our irreducible minimums have been met, further it is coming too late into our quest for his resignation. You see, it is equal to letting a witchdoctor perform a ritual in your home and claim that because he has already left your home his witchcraft will not work against you’
The NASA leader reiterated that the coalition’s leadership and supporters will continue to drive the ‘No reforms no election’ agenda to ensure Kenya is never again taken through a sham election and that the democratic voice of the people reigns supreme.
