NASA Tallying Centre Not in Tanzania, Says Raila
The National Super Alliance tallying centre is not in Tanzania, Opposition leader Raila Odinga has said.
He said it beats logic for his competitors to be worried about the location of the centre which only concerns NASA.
"Some things exist in peoples minds. Why should we have a tallying centre in Tanzania?"
"Why should someone worry about where the tallying centre will be? Raila asked.
Speaking during the presidential debates on Monday, Raila said contrary to reports, the tallying centre will be in Kenya.
"We have made it clear that we will tally. Why should some people get worried where the tallying will be?"
"It can be in Germany or the moon. But it will be in Kenya and the clouds," he said amid laughter.
Earlier, the Tanzanian government distanced itself from claims it is working with NASA on the parallel tallying centre.
Spokesman Hassan Abbas on Monday said it is wrong to link their country to Kenya's elections.
"The attempt to link the peace-loving government of Tanzania with involvement in neighbours' elections is a mistake beyond reality."
