It Is Not Necessary That Raila Odinga Be On The Ballot -Moses Kuria Now Says

Hon. Moses Kuria, a member of parliament for Gatundu South, has at long last spoken out in response to remarks made by Hon. Raila Amollo Odinga, a presidential candidate for the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance, in Githunguri, Kiambu.

Unless the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) adopts both the manual and electronic voter registers, according to Raila Odinga, there won't be an election. Due to the IEBC's desire to adopt technology, which Raila opposes, there will be no manual register.

Odinga insisted that both registers be accessible because he claimed that the commission's decision to forgo a manual register was an attempt to meddle with the upcoming election. According to Raila, a manual register must be present in every polling place for his camp to be included on the ballot.

Kuria responded to Raila on his Facebook page by saying that he is not required to be on the ballot. Kuria has informed him that he is powerless to halt an election and that it will proceed as scheduled.

"Raila's statement that "no elections, no manual register" raises security concerns. It is not necessary that Raila Odinga be on the ballot; he boycotted the 2017 election, but we still have a president. In his capacity, he cannot stop an election, just as William Ruto cannot." Moses Kuria wrote.
