Kenyans react to Nasa election boycott threats
The National Super Alliance (Nasa) on Friday released documents they say link Kenya’s military to a rigging plot by the ruling coalition Jubilee ahead of the August 8 General Elections.
Nasa presidential candidate Raila Odinga claims the seven documents, some appearing to show deployment plans, are evidence of a Jubilee Party plot to use the military and extra ballots to rig the poll.
The leaders suggested that they would not take part in the poll if they are not assured of fairness.
The claims stirred mixed reactions online with some users accusing the opposition of lying while others supported the opposition’s claims and boycott.
For those saying there will be no peace if elections aren’t credible, who exactly will determine the credibility? What will you then do?

Uhuru Kenyatta boycotted the debate, IT went ON as per plan.
IF Raila Odinga wants to boycott the elections, IT must GO ON as per plan.
