Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua on Wednesday said Jubilee Party will defeat the National Super Alliance (Nasa) in the August elections.
Ms Karua who is vying for the Kirinyaga governorship seat, said Jubilee under the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta has majority support across Kenya and will triumph.
“Jubilee will definitely defeat Nasa during the elections,” she said at St Michael Primary School in Kerugoya town during a meeting between local aspirants and officials from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
She dismissed claim by Nasa that the coalition is controlling 10 million voters countrywide as false.
“Kenyans have not gone to polls and it is ridiculous for Nasa to claim that it has the support of 10 million voters. They are panicking and that is why they are peddling false claims,” said Ms Karua.
The fierce politician reiterated that her party has endorsed President Kenyatta for re-election.
“We as Narc Kenya have thrown our weight behind President Kenyatta and we are confident that he shall emerge the winner,” she said.
Ms Karua called on all aspirants from the region to embrace mature campaigns free of violence.
“I stand for peaceful campaigns and I urge my colleagues not to incite violence,” she said.
Kirinyaga County Governor Joseph Ndathi shared the same sentiments.
Mr Ndathi said the opposition is day dreaming of winning the polls. “Nasa can’t beat Jubilee in fair elections,” said Mr Ndathi who will be defending his seat as an independent candidate.
Speaking at the same event, Mr Ndathi said he decided to contest as an independent candidate after he was allegedly rigged out during the Jubilee party nominations.
“The Jubilee primaries were marked with irregularities. Some ballot papers were found dumped on the road reserves while most of my supporters were locked out of the nominations,” he said.
