NASA principles have urged Kenyans not to relocate from where they have registered as voters.

Speaking in Nakuru on Sunday during a rally at the Afraha stadium, the principles led by the alliance flag bearer Raila Odinga urged the security teams to ensure peace and security is embraced ahead of August 8 polls.

Musalia Mudavadi said "the security agencies should ensure peace prevails to all Kenyans despite their political affiliations".

Mudavadi stated that those fleeing Nakuru in anticipation of violence will be betraying NASA's course.

"If you start relocating and don't vote where you are registered because of fear, NASA will lose your vote. We ask you to stay put and vote," he said.

"There have been leaflets circulating in various regions but electorates should not fear and start packing before exercising their voting right," co-principal Moses Wetangula added.

They also asked the security agencies to guarantee that every Kenyan will vote without being molested or threatened or in any way made uncomfortable.
