Wetangula Breaks Silence Over Links to Greek Firm Printing IEBC

There is a connection between Senator Moses Wetangula and a Greek firm that won the contract to produce ballots for the August 9 elections.

In a letter to the IEBC, ODM questioned how the firm won the tenders, stating that the firm's top officials met in January to discuss a business transaction, only to win the tender several months later.

The Azimio Coalition sent a letter to the EACC tying the Senator to the contract and requesting an investigation.

The coalition, represented by spokesman Junet Mohamed, suspects that the pact is dubious and may ultimately compromise the integrity of the August 9 elections.

However, Senator Wetangula has denied any involvement in a lengthy statement he delivered to the media.

I have read the front page of the Daily Nation on Wednesday, July 6, 2022.

The story is incredibly nasty, untrue, and actionable in its totality.

I have never conducted any business with IEBC.

I have no knowledge about ballot printing or the printing industry in general.

I have no link with Joshua Abdalla Makokha, the guy mentioned in the narrative.

The author of the false and spiteful story could easily determine if I have any ties to the printing company I am unaware of, or if the IEBC has any commercial ties to me other than overseeing my elections.

The nasty tale is merely a distraction from the actual election problems of battling corruption, high cost of living, debt burden, state capture, glaring conflicts of interest in the management of public affairs, and, of course, our impending and unstoppable victory on August 9, 2022.

Furthermore, there appears to be a hopelessly wicked witch hunt targeting political figures whose views are perceived as opposing or threatening the so-called system.

I have asked my attorneys to pursue legal action against the creator of the falsehoods and the media outlet that has spread them!!

If any letters bearing the letterhead of the Bungoma senator's office were written, they must be forgeries! I have never before composed such letters.

I do not, and I emphasize, not know the three foreigners in question.

ODM must exclude me from their electoral woes and accept the fact that they are once again leading a catastrophic election campaign.
