National Super Alliance (NASA) leaders have declared that they will not go to court to dispute the presidential results which place President Uhuru Kenyatta in the lead.
Speaking at IEBC’s tallying centre at Bomas of Kenya, the NASA leaders expressed dissatisfaction with how the electoral body had addressed their grievances.
They declared that they would not be part of the presidential results and would not go to court since the Commission had not taken action regarding a number of complaints raised.
“The court is not an alternative because we have been there before and we know how that will go,” Senator James Orengo declared.
He added that the words of the popular song Vindu Vichenjanga (things change) which was used in NASA campaigns were now rendered useless with the looming announcement by the IEBC chairman.
“The judgment is out there in the court of public opinion. This government is prepared to shred the Constitution for their own interest,” he explained.
Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi reiterated Orengo’s sentiments declaring that the coalition would not be present for the announcement of the results.
“We are not going to be party to the declaration because our issues have not been addressed,” Mudavadi stated.
He revealed that electoral commission had decided to declare the results and would address their concerns after the presidential results had been announced.
“The sit down held by the commission with us was a PR exercise where they didn’t address even one issue we have raised and even put in writing.” he maintained.
