Wajir County senator Abdullahi Ali alias Kabreta did the final rounds in a whistle-stop three-day campaign for President Uhuru Kenyatta this week, holding several meetings in his Wajir North backyard.
Dr Kabreta was mobolizing the electorate to soar turnout for tomorrow's election which President Kenyatta is assured to win following the withdrawal of his NASA challenger Raila Odinga from the race early this month
Speaking to the Kenya Free Press, Dr Kabreta said he addressed several rallies in the last three days to ensure the people turn out for tomorrow's election so he can bring to President Kenyatta as many votes as possible from Wajir County.
The senator is a close ally of the president's, who is his long time friend from their days in the Kanu government. He said he strongly supported the election of the president and believes tomorrow's vote is in compliance with the September 1 ruling by the Supreme Court which nullified Uhuru's win of August 8.
The senator said Wajir is locked for Jubliee government and expressed confidence that the election will be held successfully peacefully in "Wajir County and Kenya at large."
"We have a strong Jubliee brigade in Wajir starting from Wajir Governor Ambassador Mohamed Abdi, with me as senator, Women Rep Fatuma Gedi, Eldas MP Adan Keynan, Wajir South MP Dr Omar, Tarbaj MP Bashane Gacal and all Jubliee MCAs and affiliate party MPs in the county."
