"Election Rigging?" Mudavadi Details New Plan to Rig Out DP Ruto

The presidential race of August 9th General elections has attracted over 48 presidential aspirants. One who have shown great interest to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta is UDA party leader and Deputy President of Kenya, Dr. William Ruto and Former Prime minister, Raila Odinga.

The co-principal of Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi have raised the eyebrows after claiming that the State is bankrolling the independent candidates as part of a wider scheme to encourage election malpractice and irregularities. 

Speaking during the rally in Nyamira County on Thursday, May 5, where he accompanied Ruto and Ford-Kenya party leader, Moses Wetangula, the great critic of ODM boss now allegedly daid that the government is planning to use over 46 independent candidates to rig out Deputy President William Ruto. 

“Some of these candidates may be government projects to scuttle and divide votes. It is unprecedented,” Mudavadi said.

During 2017 General elections, we had only three independent presidential candidates of which have rose to 46 in 2022, becoming the highest number of presidential hopefuls in the history of Kenyan elections.
