National Super Alliance leaders are now calling on the under-pressure IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati to be courageous and call off the fresh presidential poll slated for Thursday.

NASA leaders who took their campaigns to Trans Nzoia maintain IEBC as currently constituted cannot be trusted with carrying out a free, fair and credible poll.

They say the last minute decision by IEBC Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba to take a one month’s leave is inconsequential.

They said the absence of Chiloba doesn’t matter saying the Commission can no longer guarantee for a credible poll.

Raila insists there will be no election on Thursday unless IEBC is restructured.

This he says must not be construed for a scheme to force a coalition government saying he is not interested in a nusu mkate government.
