RAILA ODINGA tells UHURU to respect civil servants – You can’t sack chiefs because of campaigning for NASA.

Thursday August 3, 2017-National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, has warned President Uhuru Kenyatta against threatening civil servants who are campaigning for NASA.

A number of chiefs from Makueni, Machakos and Kitui counties are using government resources to campaign for NASA.

Speaking in Wote, Makueni County on Wednesday, Uhuru said he will sack all the chiefs who are campaigning for NASA after he wins the presidency next week.


But in a fast rejoinder, Raila said civil servants cannot forgo their right to vote for leaders of their choice.

The opposition leader further said the threats are calculated to intimidate civil servants to support Uhuru in the polls that are four days away.

"These threats to chiefs and public servants are further evidence that the President can no longer differentiate his private and public persona,” Raila said in a statement on Thursday.

"As the President was threatening chiefs, CS's and other senior public servants have been mobilised to campaign for Jubilee." he added.

 Raila concluded by urging chiefs to support NASA and promised them of senior jobs if he wins the presidency next week.

  1. Is Raila insane! This insincere man and his double standards. He recently mentioned names of people he will sack when he ascends to presidency (as he dreams) because of supporting the government while holding public offices. And now he expects the government to grant accolades to chiefs who plan for heckling of the countries president.
    Even in his stupidity, a man like this should realize, much as they are both campaigning for same position, the president remains to be president and the office should not be insulted.
    There are many who are vying for presidency but they are not equal to the president for now. The only difference between those others and Raila is that the octogenarian has perfected the art of creating euphoria around himself through his many years of trying for a job he cannot do, and whatever other powers he uses to win feeble minds.

  2. Where does he get these senior jobs from if it is not based on corruption?
