Nasa’s Canaan donations kitty hits Sh20million
The National Super Alliance (Nasa) has far collected Sh20million through its public fundraising appeal for October 17 repeat presidential elections campaign.
Nasa co-principal Musalia Mudavadi made the announcement on Friday, saying they’ve been receiving small contributors of Sh1,000 and below.
“Whether you donated Sh20 or Sh20,000 or Sh2 million, you are now plugged into the journey to bring electoral justice and accountability to Kenya. Your cents have become Sh20 million,” said Mr Mudavadi, who is also Nasa’s head of national campaign.
The opposition urged its supporters to continue sending financial support saying that the campaign it has embarked on is going to be long and demanding.
He said they are campaigning against an opponent that has unfettered access to state resources and big businesses.
“We are more than 10 million strong. If each one of us sent one shilling, that would automatically translate into Sh10 million,” Mr Mudavadi added.
The Nasa coalition through its presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, last week unveiled an M-Pesa paybill number and a bank account which their supporters and Kenyans of goodwill can make their contributions.
