As the elections are heading closer in Kenya, opposition parties have formed an Alliance which is aimed at overtaking the government of Kenya and Raila Odinga will lead the opposition.
National Super Alliance (Nasa) will be taking on the Jubilee Party which started as an alliance between The National Alliance (TNA) of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto’s United Republican Party (URP) in the August election.
The National Super Alliance is made up of the member parties of the Coalition for Reform and Democracy (Cord), the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) led by Raila Odinga, Wiper Democratic Movement of Kalonzo Musyoka and the Forum for the Restoration of Democracy (Ford) Kenya led by Moses Wetang’ula – and the Amani National Congress led by Musalia Mudavadi (ANC)
Accepting the nomination Odinga said time has come for Kenya to see change.
“I am humbled to receive the Presidential nomination of the Orange Democratic Movement party ahead of the August 8th General Election”.
“The NASA Team is brought together by the vision that through inclusive unity and good governance, prosperity for all Kenyans is attainable”, said Odinga.
He further said his team is committed to delivering this vision for Kenyans.
“We need you to join the team and make this goal a reality for yourself and for future generations” he concluded.
The Party through 4, 200 delegates drawn from all 47 counties of the country unanimously resolved to back his bid to serve as their president.
Kenyans will go to the polls on August 8 in what is set to be a hard fought general election decided in large part by the core support of candidates’ ethnic constituencies and Odinga is confident that he can oust Kenyatta and his companions and bring back the destiny in Kenya.
Odinga and Kenyatta have been the closest rivals and Odinga accused Kenyatta that he rigged the votes in a previous election. More than 10 million Kenyans have registered to vote in August.
