A Jubilee legislator has said he will resign if President Uhuru Kenyatta will be defeated in the repeat polls slated for October 26.
Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro on Sunday stressed he cannot serve in a government led by NASA leader Raila Odinga.
Speaking during a campaign trail in parts of Mathioya Constituency accompanied by other local legislators, the MP further stated that he will also resign if Kenyatta will not garner more than 55 percent of casted votes.
Iam very ready to resign if you will not reelect President Uhuru Kenyatta because I can only realise my development goals in the Jubilee regime, Nyoro told the residents of Mathioya.
The youthful legislator castigated NASA MPs for failing to attend parliamentary sessions saying they are failing their electorate since they do not represent their interests in the House.
NASA, the first timer legislator said have no agenda for the country thus they do not need to be given any votes.
Kenyans should wake up and put into power leaders who are development oriented and ignore those who are calling them to participate in meaningless demonstrations, remarked Nyoro.
He was accompanied by MPs; Alice Wahome (Kandara), Mary Waithera (Maragua), Joseph Nduati (Gatanga), Peter Kimari (Mathioya) and Murang’a senator Irungu Kang’ata.
On her part, Wahome divulged that there are civil societies and lawyers who are pushing for resignation of IEBC chairman Mr. Wafula Chebukati so as to ensure there will be no presidential polls.
She told the lawyers to stop taking Kenya for granted saying such a move may plunge the country into constitutional crises.
I want to tell NASA counsels and some non-governmental organisations pushing for resignation of Chebukati among other IEBC officials that elections will be held as scheduled and we are not going to allow few people to put the country into constitutional crisis, she stressed.
Irungu Kang’ata on his part wondered why NASA principals are not campaigning for repeat elections.
He said the opposition leader Raila Odinga is planning to fly out of the country instead of engaging in campaigns, noting that NASA is not ready for the repeat presidential elections.
With or without the elections, President Uhuru Kenyatta will remain president of this country and we condemn the protests being organised by NASA as they are sabotaging economy of this country, noted Kang’ata.
He appealed to Kenyans to stay away from NASA demonstrations as the protests will have huge negative impact to the country’s economy.
