Nairobi, KENYA: A section of National Super Alliance NASA, says they are ready to curb loopholes that led to the alleged rigging of August 8th elections, which were nullified by the Supreme Court.

Addressing journalists in Nairobi on Thursday, the team led by former Nairobi governor Evans Kidero, said that the elections were electronically and manually tampered with,thus the reason why they consolidated to have the way forward by first ensuring that the elected leaders act as agents in various counties.

“It is the responsibility of Kenyans to elect credible leaders and even if there are no agents in some places, it is not a license to steal.” Kidero said.

He cited that, Kenyans want Justice and there can only be peace when that justice is served to all.

Kidero argued that even if some polling stations missed NASA agents, that was not a license for rigging elections.

Speaking on the same event, former Machakos senator, Johnston Muthama, assured Kenyans that they are going to mobilize voters to vote for Raila Odinga and garner margin of 1.2 million more votes against Uhuru Kenyatta.

He further supported Kidero that some Agents were actually locked out of polling stations leading to leeway of stealing votes.

He also criticized sentiments made by president Uhuru Kenyatta on remarks he made against chief justice David Maraga saying leaders should learn to stand with the truth.

The meeting was attended by NASA’s politicians such Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris, Kibra MP Ken Okoth, and former Nairobi governor Evans Kidero.
