Professor Makau Mutua has been criticized by Kenyans after he alleged that voters were being blocked from voting by IEBC agents. According to a tweet he shared on his Twitter page early in the morning as the elections were commencing, Mutua said that they had received intel from their sources. He went ahead to ask the chairman Wafula Chebukati to look into the matter and see that Kenyans are allowed to vote.
"WE are receiving disturbing reports of @IEBCKenya returning officers/officials HINDERING agents/voters from accessing polling stations. This comes on the heels of other unacceptable incidents. We ask Chair @WChebukati to act RESOLUTELY to arrest any more barriers to the vote." Mutua said.
Kenyans have however come out to lecture Makau Mutua after he shared the tweet. Many of those that responded to his post said that he is panicking that Ruto is going to win. The people said that they are voting in peace dismissing his claims that people were being denied access to polling stations. They asked him to keep quite and let Kenyans vote in peace.
