President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned Nasa presidential candidate Raila Odinga to brace himself for a very short presidency, in the event that he wins the October 17 election.

President Kenyatta spoke at State House, Nairobi on Monday afternoon while addressing Jubilee Party leaders and others who have defected from the opposition.

He also dared Nasa MPs to skip the first parliament sitting saying the Jubilee Party has enough numbers in the National Assembly and in the Senate to conduct business.

“Even if he (Raila Odinga) is elected, we have the opportunity in parliament. Two months, three months tumemtoa,” President Kenyatta said.

The president also criticized the opposition for campaigning on a ethnic platform.

“Our competitors are campaigning on a tribal platform, who is more tribal now? Kenya cannot be led by all the 43 tribes but that leader who has the interests of Kenyans at heart,” he said.
