Kiambaa MP John Njuguna popularly referred to as 'Kawanjiku' on Thursday led his constituents in protests as they called upon his main competitor Jubilee's aspirant Kariri Njama to withdraw the petition he filed in court over the disputed results.
In July this year, Njuguna defeated Njama is an hotly contested by election where he garnered 21773 against 21263 votes.
Jubilee's National Management Committee claimed that the results were manipulated, and that their candidate had won, with the Secretary of the Jubilee Party coalition MP Aden Keynan affirming their decision to move to court.
Addressing the media during the protests, Njuguna stated that the residents are unable to register as voters in the ongoing mass voter registration exercise and there are fears that a good number of them will be left out of the exercise if the case is not withdrawn or suspended.
He went on to claim that the witnessed wrangles have been caused by the association between the ODM and Jubilee due to the handshake.
"I call upon them to concede defeat, we are past the election time. This Jubilee-ODM union is causing all these, and I want to tell them to be prepared because we have another election period in 2022," said Njuguna.
