President Uhuru Kenyatta has accused the National Super Alliance (NASA) of cowardice and labelled them dictators for threatening to boycott the August 8 General Election.
Speaking during the Democratic Party's (DP) National Delegates Conference in Nairobi, President Kenyatta accused the opposition of intimidating the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and the Judiciary as well as being a hindrance to democracy.
He asserted that the Opposition's repeated threat that there will be no election unless its demands are met by the IEBC, amounted to denying Kenyans the chance to freely choose their leaders.
“Intimidation is a factor of dictatorship and cowardice. Kenyans should be given space to choose the leaders they want without threats,” Kenyatta pointed out.
He urged NASA to campaign on the premise of their agenda instead of using threats and intimidation.
The President was flanked by DP Party leader, Joseph Munyao, who also strongly condemned the Opposition.
Mr. Munyao's DP party became the sixth non-Jubilee affiliated party to formally endorse President Kenyatta's re-election bid.
