National Super Alliance (NASA) co-principal Musalia Mudavadi has said peace and stability of the country will be archived when electoral injustices are eliminated. Speaking at the burial of Marry Lulu at Sabatia in Vihiga County, the ANC Party leader said the perennial electoral injustices have contributed largely to constant friction experienced after every national election.

He noted that the NASA brigade is determined to ensure that the needed reforms at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) are done to fix the image of the electoral body.

The ANC Party leader said there are a few individuals who have constantly used the electoral body to accomplish their intentions.

Mudavadi reiterated that the country belongs to all Kenyans and no tribe should feel superior over the other, sentiments which were echoed by Vihiga County Senator George Khaniri.

“We want to get rid of the notion that a few selected communities feel so superior while others feel marginalized. As leaders in NASA, we want to create a culture where any individual from any community can go for the top seat and rule the nation, this can only be achieved if we have an electoral body that Kenyans trust,” said Mudavadi.

Senator Khaniri said the October 26th repeat polls were a sham, noting that the electoral body needs reforms to restore Kenyans’ faith.

He thanked Vihiga County Assembly for adopting the Peoples’ Assembly motion, saying that this will give Kenyans a chance to voice their concerns.

Khaniri rubbished Deputy President William Ruto’s sentiments that pushing for Peoples’ Assembly is unconstitutional adding that Kenyans have every right to express themselves.

“I want to remind the Deputy President that every Kenyan has a right constitutionally to express himself or herself, and as NASA, we will still push for the formation of Peoples’ Assembly across the country,” Khaniri said.

Those in attendance were Sabatia MP Alfred Agoi and Vihiga County Woman Representative Beatrice Adagala among others.
