The UDA party has released a press statement whereby they claim that their part agents have been intimidated and harassed by police across Rurii ward during the By-elections. At one Mugumoini polling station UDA agents have been denied entry as strangers purporting to be UDA agents take charge.
The party has also condemned the state for using the police to intimidate voters and termed the act as abuse of power by the Executive.
" It's unfortunate that 29 years after multi-party elections and 10 years after a progressive constitution which guarantees the right of citizes to multi-party democracy, misguided agents of state are still using the police to intimidate voters. We urge IEBC to take note of these intimidations and condemn them for what they are: abuse of power by the Executive" Veronica Maina, UDA Secretary General.
