Tharaka Nithi senator Kithure Kindiki has claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta and Azimio – One Presidential candidate Raila Odinga are preparing to reject the results of the August 9, election.
Dismissing Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula’s association with a Greek firm contracted to print ballot papers by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), Kindiki termed it as trivial propaganda propagated by Kenya Kwanza Alliance’s main competitor, Azimio – one Kenya, to prepare for the ground to reject August election results.
He informed Raila Odinga that president Uhuru Kenyatta and state machinery will save him from the bruising defeat awaiting him in the August contest.
“The trivial propaganda about the ballot printing tender by our main competitor ODM /Azimio is a cheap and desperate attempt to prepare the ground for them to reject the results. Folks, in 33 days, you will not know what hit you! Time is up, and sorry, the outgoing president and State Machinery will not save you from the oncoming defeat” posted Kindiki.
Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula had been linked to a Greek firm that was awarded ballot papers printing tender, a move that ODM allies argued to forge plans for Kenya Kwanza to rig elections in favour of DP Ruto.
Through his alleged aide, Joshua Abdalla Makokha, Wetangula is said to have acquired the multi-million tender.
Wetangula denies ODM’s allegations
Wetangula denied the allegations noting that his office has neither written any letter to IEBC nor a Greek firm asking for ballot papers printing tender.
He told ODM to keep his name out of their mouths and stop linking him to election woes and come to reality about the awaiting defeat on the 9th of August.
“ODM must keep me out of their election woes and come to the reality that they are once again starring at a disastrous election outing. I have never had any business relationship with IEBC. I know nothing about ballot printing or any printing business for that matter!! I have no relationship of any kind with the person named in the story as Joshua Abdalla Makokha,” he said.
