According According to him, all the three former Starehe members of Parliament; Bishop Margaret Wanjiru of UDA, Charles Kanyi Jaguar of UDA, and Maina Kamanda teamed up to block his win.

For Kamanda he claimed that his move to block his bid was informed by his hate for Ruto alleging that he mobilized all his Azimio people to the Jamuhuri tallying center to force a stranger who was not a returning officer to announce a winner.

For Jaguar he claimed he is a government mole in UDA arguing that he has been bitter since he defeated him in the nominations

"Jaguar who is a Gov mole, a bitter man who i defeated and humiliated in the nominations and agreed to go to EALA...has never supported me despite remaining in UDA." He claimed.

"His work was to sniff through photos of my meetings and call his former supporters who used to attend my meetings and tell them not to support me because he will be back in 2027" Mbugua added.

He further claimed that After he defeated the three at the ballot they mobilized goons at the polling station and after harrasing the returning officer to announce the results, the returning officer couldn't budge because there was no tally after which they allegedly brought brought in their friend who is the CRO to announce.
