Nasa declares war on 7 Cabinet secretaries

The National Super Alliance (Nasa) has vowed to file charges against Cabinet secretaries and State officers chasing votes for Jubilee if the chief public prosecutor does not act.

Nasa campaign chief Musalia Mudavadi on Thursday said the coalition had written to Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko to charge seven ministers and two other government officials it accuses of taking part in politics.

The alliance said it had given Mr Tobiko seven days to charge Cabinet Secretaries Fred Matiang’i (Education), Joseph Nkaissery (Interior), Najib Balala (Tourism) and Mwangi Kiunjuri (Devolution) with breach of law.

The opposition outfit which is led by Raila Odinga camp also wants James Macharia (Transport), Eugene Wamalwa (Water) and Cleopa Mailu (Health) to face charges.

“Kenyans who may not be aware of the gross abuse of office by President Uhuru Kenyatta and cohorts should know that the IEBC (Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission), DCI (Directorate of Criminal Investigations), and DPP are aware of the violations but are conveniently colluding to defraud citizens of free, fair and credible elections,” Mr Mudavadi told journalists in Nairobi.
