Raila takes NASA politics to Meru

By Mary Daraja

The National Super Alliance (NASA) is Meru County to popularize the newest political coalition.

ODM leader Raila Odinga left Nairobi Monday morning for Meru.

Odinga told journalists at Wilson Airport before takeoff that their tour in the Mt. Kenya region is meant to tell the people about NASA and its agenda for Kenya.

He landed in Timau where he commenced the tour of Meru addressing a waiting crowd .

On Tuesday, NASA will take their campaign to Tharaka Nithi. NASA leaders who were in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County on Saturday pledged to move in every corner of the country to polarize their political outfit.

The team is yet to pick its presidential flag bearer but maintains the principals will remain together.

The NASA team includes Wiper Leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya boss Moses Wetangula, ANC’s Musalia Mudavadi and Odinga.

Elsewhere, there is need to amend the Elections Act in the future to curb illegal voter transfer by aspiring candidates, nominated MP Sarah Lekorere has said. Lokerere noted that during the just concluded mass voter registration, there were massive voter transfers especially in Laikipia North which is suspect.

Lekorere said the constituency recorded the highest number of transfers from Samburu, Isiolo and Meru Counties and blamed some politicians of giving handouts to unsuspecting voters to transfer their votes.

In 2013, the constituency had 33,000 registered voters but the number has risen to 50,000 voters with over half of the new voters being transfers.

She lamented that over six thousand illegal transfers can make a huge negative impact in the region.
