With only four days to the general elections, National Super Alliance (NASA) principals camped in Narok County where they reiterated their earlier promise of implementing the Truth Justice and Reconciliation Commission (TJRC) report.
Led by the coaliltion flag bearer Raila Odinga, the principals alleged that the Maa Community had suffered numerous land injustices under the previous regimes and promised to bring justice to the community once they ascend to power.
The Maa community in Kajiado, Laikipia and Narok has continued to suffer since independence because they do not get value of their land, this will change when we ascend to power next week, said Odinga.
Odinga was speaking at Suswa grounds in Narok East Sub County at an event dubbed ‘suswa declaration’ where he was blessed by Maa elders to be the fifth president of Kenya.
He took the opportunity to urge the community to vote for him in large numbers on August 8 pleading with them to remain at the polling stations to guard their votes.
The opposition leader further promised to empower jobless youths by giving incentives that will help them begin small scale businesses.
We want jobless people to have an opportunity of creating jobs too by running their own businesses, single women will also be given a special fund that will sustain their families, said Odinga.
NASA Deputy President Aspirant Kalonzo Musyoka faulted Jubilee government for threatening chiefs in Ukambani saying the chiefs too had a right to choose the leaders of their choice.
I want to tell chiefs in Ukambani not to be frightened by President Uhuru Kenyatta because if he sacks you we will return you when we get to power next week, said Kalonzo.
Narok residents led by ODM gubernatorial aspirant Joseph Musuni asked the NASA principals to appoint a person from the Maa community to be the Lands Cabinet Secretary to help in resolving the land injustices.
The Jubilee government has not done anything to resolve controversies surrounding Kedong’ Ranch and the land belonging to former Vice President Joseph Murumbi.
We are confident that NASA government will help us, he said. Also present were Co-principals Musalia Mudavadi and Bomet governor Isaac Ruto
