Mombasa,KENYA: President Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday told off opposition chief Raila Odinga over his threats to boycott repeat presidential elections.
Speaking in Mombasa, Kenyatta claimed Mr. Odinga is planning to bring disorder and suspense in the country. He called on Mr. Odinga to retire in peace instead of boycotting the polls slated for 26th of this month.
Kenyatta also castigated Mr Odinga for always complaining about different issues.
“Mara ni Chiloba,Mara safaricom mara siju nini.Pesa taslimu bilioni 12 za wakenya zimetumiwa kuandaa huu uchaguzi kwasababu wewe ulienda kortini ukasema uchaguzi urudiwe”, he stated.
He also urged Mr. Odinga to retire in peace if he does not want to take part in the repeat presidential elections and that Kenyans are becoming tired and weary of the opposition chief following his numerous unrealistic demands.
“He (Raila) is full of excuses. Kenyans are tired. If you don’t want elections, then keep off and let the country move forward”, said Kenyatta.
Meanwhile, hundreds of National super alliance supporters in Mombasa took to the streets to demonstrate against independent and electoral boundaries commission IEBC chief executive officer Ezra Chiloba.
Police in riot gears watched from a distance as the demonstrators carrying placards, made their way to IEBC offices in Mombasa.
The protesters later dispersed after airing their grievances.
