No need for NASA campaigns in Busia – Ojaamong

Busia governor Sospeter Ojaamong has said that the National Super Alliance (NASA) coalition does not need to hunt for votes in the region for the October 26 repeat Presidential polls.

Speaking during the burial of the late Samwel Siata, brother to former Labour Party leader Julia Ojiambo in Samia Sub County on Saturday, Ojaamong said the region was already converted, hence no need for further preaching.

The People are already aware and understand the objectives of NASA, like students who have tackled the whole syllabus hence they do not have to study very hard, he said adding that it is Jubilee that needs to work very hard because they are new comers.

He dismissed the area leaders who have decamped to Jubilee party arguing that they had gone as individuals.

Busia residents are in NASA to stay because Jubilee had enough time to prove their worth in the region,but they did not initiate development in the region, he said.

He alleged that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto only know Gatundu and Eldoret, and that they only visit other regions during campaigns.

The governor urged the former Funyula MP Paul Otuoma to consider going back to the coalition, arguing that Jubilee was already flooded and there was no room for him.

There are many vacancies in NASA, like now we have four slots for East Africa Legislative Assembly which have not been filled, if he comes back he will be considered, he said.

Ojaamong at the same time told Otuoma to stop blaming NASA Presidential candidate Raila Odinga for his political woes adding that Raila did not campaign for him (Ojaamong).

He further said that there was need for serious changes in IEBC because Kenyans had lost confidence in both the systems and election kits, warning that demonstrations will intensify if the reforms at the electoral body were not forthcoming.

The governor also explained that the residents will vote for Raila Odinga since he supports devolution which has changed lives in the counties.
