President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that the NASA leadership led Raila Odinga had planned to soil the country into violence but were ashamed by the Jubilee leadership.
President Kenyatta has told his supporters that Odinga had skillfully put a trap on the path of Jubilee by heading to the Supreme Court.
The trap, he said, was to force him to reject Supreme Court verdict and thus plunge the country into turmoil.
“Raila was shocked that we accepted the verdict of the court. He thought we are like him and would reject the decision,” said the President when he addressed a rally at Uhuru Park.
Kenyatta said Odinga was fond of using the courts to derail Jubilee’s programmes and plans saying the same happened in the 2013 elections where he was facing charges at International Criminal Court (ICC) together with his deputy William Ruto.
He accused Odinga of being responsible for the violence that rocked Kenya after the disputed 2007 presidential results.
“In 2007, he lost the election and he refused to accept defeat and caused bloodshed. When he got what he wanted (Raila was appointed Prime Minister to stop the post-election violence), he turned around and said Uhuru and Ruto were responsible for the violence,” said Kennyatta.
He thanked Kenyans for maintaining peace during the prolonged electioneering period saying there was no need to fight each other.
He exuded confidence he will beat Odinga on Tuesday, October 17 in the repeat election
