MP wants KDF deployed in ‘trouble spots’ on Election Day
Maara MP Kareke Mbiuki has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to order the deployment of Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) in areas where there could be chaos during October 26 repeat presidential election.
Speaking at Kathwana Primary School ground in Tharaka-Nithi County during Mashujaa Day celebrations, Mr Mbiuki said elections must be held as directed by Supreme Court despite boycott calls by National Super Alliance (Nasa) presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
He said Mr Odinga has been an impediment to government since independence and that should come to and end.
He added that it is illegal to stop any Kenyan from voting and anyone trying to do so must be dealt with accordingly.
“Mr Odinga should not be allowed to continue causing trouble in the country,” said Mr Mbiuki.
The lawmaker said Jubilee leaders will mobilise their supporters to block the Supreme Court entrance in case Mr Odinga goes back there to stop the swearing in of Mr Kenyatta after the election.
