Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui yesterday welcomed the decision by NASA candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Muyoka to withdraw from the October 26 rerun.
In a statement, he said the move was not surprising.
“We welcome the decision by the NASA brigade to withdraw from the October 26 repeat election. This move is hardly surprising,” Kinyanjui (pictured) said.
“From the Coast region, Kisii, Narok to the Western region, the image of a crumbling house was evident.”
He said the NASA demonstrations that had been called nationwide only took place in a few areas around Kisumu and in isolated parts of Nairobi.
