While in West Pokot, Raila promised his government would ensure devolution is implemented, adding, transition would be done within the first 100 days.

“If you elect me as president I would ensure that when am in Nairobi funds are sent down to West Pokot,” Raila told supporters.

The PM cautioned the electorate from electing leaders who opposed the new Constitution saying they could not be trusted with its implementation.

He told residents he would implement what he says unlike his opponents in the Jubilee Alliance.

“I’m the better placed leader to steer this country as it goes through the transition period,” Said Raila.

As Raila camped in west Pokot, Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru was in the neighbouring Baringo County with the message to the residents not to be divided in the way they cast their votes.

Kenyatta played a defensive game to voters who are mainly KANU supporters saying he left the independence political party because it had so much hurdles to jump before restoring its glory.

“I was in KANU, but left because I wanted to serve Kenyan people without any hurdles along the way because in Jubilee we are not interested in power but serving our people,” said Kenyatta.

Meanwhile, Chief justice Dr. Willy Mutunga revealed that his office had received threats from what is said to be the outlawed Mungiki sect if he had offered adversaries to the integrity case that was ruled on Friday last week.

The embattled chief justice cried foul saying the PS in the office office of the president Francis Kimemia was a problem.

However, Mutunga told the press that his office would not be cowed in service delivery.

In a quick rejoinder the director of public prosecution Keriako Tobiko has instructed the Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to launch investigation on the same. The head of civil service Francis Kimemia yesterday night convened the national security meeting to discuss the matter raised by the president of the Supreme Court about his security.

Mutunga had said that the Head of civil service had a hand in his denial of clearance at the airport to fly to Dar- es- Salam for a conference saying he was told to clear with the PS at the office of the president despite the existence of the provision of the separation of powers between executive, Judiciary and Legislature under the 2010 constitution.

Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka while in Makueni County said that the matters are weighty and require thorough investigation and those responsible brought to book.

“What the Chief Justice said is a matter that needs to be investigated. We don’t want to go back to the old system of judiciary,” said the VP.

Ruto said they did not play a hand in the threats from a group by the name ‘Mungiki Veteran Group/ Kenya Sovereignty Defence Squad’.

“We believe in the free judiciary. We believe in the rule of law. We want judiciary without intimidation,” said Ruto.
