"Kenyans Are Not Fools, " Ex-Governor Alleges Lies In Chebukati's Remarks Over Bomas Remarks

Wycliffe Oparanya has questioned the events at Bomas of Kenya and the manner in which former IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati declared the presidential results.

"However, the president is exacerbating the situation by making a serious allegation of alleged plans by then his competitors to kidnap Chebukati and force the announcement of presidential results in favor of Azimio," Oparanya said in a statement.

"Surprisingly, Mr Chebukati has gone public and confirmed the president's allegations, as well as requested that the Head of State convene a tribunal to investigate the matter."

Reminding the president and Chebukati that "Kenyans are not fools and cannot buy the brazen lies they were propagating," the ex-governor claimed to be doing.

In reality, he claimed, "their acts are a plot to defend what they did in Bomas of Kenya during the chaotic announcement of the presidential results".

When Chebukati's life was under risk, the governor questioned why he did not make the effort to record a statement with the police.

He claimed that the timing of the charge was incorrect and that it not only damaged the nation's delicate social fabric but also carried a high risk of explosion as it moved toward what he called another unknowable but potentially gloomy future.

"I, therefore, request that the president refrain from making such divisive statements because they impede the healing process and urge his administration to recognize the importance of reuniting a deeply divided country as soon as possible," Oparanya said
