Kirinyaga governor Ann Waiguru, Moses Kuria and Kenya Kwanza allied legislators claim vote rigging in Kirinyaga county.
During a Press conference today, the leaders claimed that collosal amounts of money have been paid to voters with an aim to vote against Kenya Kwanza leaders in the region.
The voters paid were allegedly asked to vote and take photos of the ballot papers during the voting day.
They also claimed that marked ballot papers are on transit across the county.
“It has come to our notice that our opponents have bribed electorates with colossal amount of money to hoodwink them into voting for Azimio – One Kenya candidates in Kirinyaga and across the country. They have instructed the voters paid to take photos on how they have marked the papers and share with them after voting. We have also understood that several trucks are on transit across the country to distribute marked ballot papers for Azimio – One Kenya” said Waiguru.
This comes after Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria had claimed that 40 trucks with marked ballot papers are set to leave state lodge, Nakuru to various destinations.
He called upon members of the public to stop the trucks, coated with GK registration number plates and destroy the papers.
“Top Alert!! 40 trucks with marked ballot papers will leave State Lodge Nakuru to various destinations in the next 20 minutes. Media, public please stop them. Most of them have GK registration numbers” said Kuria.
In Chuka/Igambang’ombe, members of the public destroyed ballot papers that were on transit from Chuka sub-county to Igambang’ombe, citing that they were marked papers.
With less than 24 hours remaining to general election, Kenya Kwanza Alliance has constantly continued to accuse Azimio – One Kenya umbrella over election rigging plots on Tuesday, aided by area chiefs, county commissioners and a score of government officials.
