By-election was conducted yesterday at Juja, Rurii and Bonchari UDA candidates won in Juja and Rurii. They lost in Bonchari with a small margin. During election process Irungu Kang'ata said that the election was planning to be rigged using the police officers.
Irungu Kang'ata wrote on his official Tweeter handle that the police have started beating citizens and are planning to interfere with the voting and counting of votes. Irungu Kang'ata was supporting a candidate endorsed by Moses Kuria under UDA.
Raila Amollo Odinga has said that it is not good to criticize the police because it is an independent organ and no election was planning to be rigged.
"An election process is an opportunity for the voters to express their will at the ballot and not an avenue to pursue IMAGINARY and SHORT-LEGGED political interests.
Security forces exist to serve the people and not the interests of those out to conduct political experiments.
The peaceful co-existence post-2018 must NOT be taken for granted by some rogue elements wanting to confuse the HANDSHAKE for an excuse to ERODE our hard-earned liberties!
This must STOP!
What we have witnessed in the by-elections in Bonchari and Juja is an abuse of police powers and an arrogant display of IMPUNITY by a few overzealous and bellicose government functionaries." Raila Amollo Odinga tweeted.
