President Uhuru Kenyatta has accused the National Super Alliance (Nasa) of dividing Kenyans with its #10MillionStrong slogan.

speaking in Isiolo over the weekend, he said the Jubilee Party belongs to all Kenyans, hence the party’s #45MillionStrong slogan.

Uhuru said he is a leader of all Kenyans, of 45 tribes, thus the ’45 million-strong’, and would continue investing in projects that leave no part of the country behind.

The Opposition coalition, under Raila Odinga, has been running a campaign of numbers, saying it has a solid basket of ten million votes, hence the #10MillionStrong slogan.

Uhuru is the recent to talk about the numbers, even as NCIC chairman Francis Ole Kaparo and Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Ole Nkaissery condemned usage of such slogans.

According to them, the slogans could brew violence after the August 8 polls.

Some Kenyans took to social media (Twitter) to react about #45MillionStrong, Monday, as indicated below:

JUBILEE’s includes 5 Million dead voters .

When NASA is only concerned about 10 million people, President is focused on serving and uplifting all Kenyans
