We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

Opposition chief Raila Odinga today claimed the Jubilee government is planning to use Kenya Defence Forces to rig the August general elections.

Odinga, who spoke in Nairobi midday before leaving for Loitokitok, claimed some 120 military officers from all the barracks and units are being trained for a specified special operation in the upcoming general elections.

He claimed the training is underway at Embakasi barracks in Nairobi and several others are being hosted in Kakamega at the former provincial premises.

The opposition chief claimed they are being prepared for recruitment by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission as polling officials.

He claimed the ongoing progress have every semblance with what happened in the run-up to the 2013 general elections in which administration police officers were trained and dispersed as poll agents for Party of National Unity.

“We are inclined to believe that those activities are meant to subvert the will of the people in the coming general elections. We are challenging the national government, the leadership and security organs to explain to Kenyans why a select group of military officers would be involved in training civilians like county commissioners and regional coordinators,” said Raila.

He went on; “We also want to appeal to our military to remain faithful to the traditions of the country and refuse to be dragged into politics.

The opposition leader was expected in Kimana in Kajiado South constituency to officially open a market constructed by the county government on the invitation of Governor David Nkedianye.

Raila is also expected to address a political rally in Kimana before going to Makueni and Emali. He is also expected in Kitengela later in the afternoon.
