On behalf of the people of Kakamega County, Azimio gubernatorial aspirant Fernandes Barasa expressed his disgust at the decision made by the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati to indefinitely postpone the Gubernatorial Elections scheduled for next week.
The people of Kakamega just like other Kenyans, have a right to exercise their democratic right which Mr. Chebukati wants to deprive them of following his decision which was made in bad taste.
The move, if allowed to stand, will deprive them of the basic services that they are entitled to receive from the County government, as the incumbent Governor will now have limited powers.
That we have reasons to believe that the whole plan was orchestrated by enemies of Kakamega County, who are behind Mr. Chebukati, and are committed to punishing us for supporting and voting for Azimio La Umoja presidential candidate Rt. Hon. Raila Odinga.
They are hellbent on imposing their projects on the people of Kakamega, and by extension Mombasa, by allegedly rigging the gubernatorial elections in their favour.
He wishes to sincerely thank the legal team which has burnt the midnight oil to ensure that we have a solid case against Mr. Chebukati. He trust the honorable judges at the Kakamega Law Courts will deliver justice to our people.
He wants to call on our supporters and the people of Kakamega at large, to remain committed to the cause which is meant to deliver our "Maendeleo Na Usawa" agenda. Our victory can be delayed, but not denied.
