Orengo requests the arrest of Kenya Kwanza leaders while alleging election fraud

James Orengo, the elected governor of Siaya County, has requested that the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) act quickly to detain a number of Kenya Kwanza leaders because he believes that the 2022 election will be marred by irregularities in various areas of the Mt. Kenya region.

In the 2022 election, according to Orengo, there was election fraud. He asserted that an additional 800,000 votes were cast for President in the presidential election, the results of which have not yet been released by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC). However, no additional votes were cast for any other positions.

"Within the Kenya Kwanza wing, there is a criminal organization. Those people ought to be put in jail. The DCI should act swiftly to detain such individuals "added Orengo.

He said, "In the presidential election, eight hundred thousand votes were cast for President but not for other offices.

Orengo's announcement comes only a short time after the IEBC raised a red flag over 10,000 suspicious ballots that were mistakenly counted in favor of Deputy President William Ruto from the Kiambu Town Constituency.

Despite the fact that there were 56,546 total legitimate ballots, the Commission initially declared DP Ruto of the UDA as having 51,050 votes to Raila's 14,860.

David Mwaure and George Wajackoyah each received 318 votes.

There were 10,000 more votes cast than the first total Commissioner Justus Nyangaya reported on Saturday.

However, this was changed after media brought this to the Commission's attention.

Correction made, Nyang'aya stated that Ruto received 41,050 votes as opposed to the previously reported 51,050 votes.
