Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula has denied allegations linking him to winning ballot papers printing tender through the Greek firm that was contracted to print for the August 9, general election.
Daily Newspaper had noted that Wetangula through his right-hand man, Joshua Abdalla Makokha had contacted the firm that was awarded the tender by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to print ballot papers in Greece.
Senator directed his bitterness toward Raila Odinga and his close associates for allegedly dragging his name falsely into the ballot printing tender that he is not aware of.
He denied knowing Joshua Abdalla Makokha, Ford Kenya alleged aide who traveled to Greece to reinforce the deal.
“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.” said Wetangula
ODM accuses Wetangula of influencing ballot printing tender
ODM had alleged Wetangula’s move to acquire ballot papers printing tender would probably enhance rigging of the August election in favour of Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
He added that the purported hopelessly spirited malicious witch-hunt against leaders opposing the agenda of the state and Azimio – One Kenya will not change his decision to support Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
“Furthermore, there appears to be a hopelessly spirited malicious witch-hunt against leaders holding political opinions that are seen as going against or challenging the so-called system. If any letters were written on letterheads indicating they are from the Bungoma senator’s office, they must be forgeries. I have never written such letters. I do not and I repeat, I do not know the three foreigners being referred to” he added.
