The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has summoned Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria over vote-rigging claims.
Kuria is expected to appear before the commission’s Electoral Code of Conduct Enforcement Committee on Wednesday, 30th March 2022.
Kuria will be grilled about the utterances that he made at Kasarani during the UDA party delegates’ NDC.
“You are hereby required to attend the Offices of the Commission at Anniversary Towers, Commission Boardroom 6th floor on Wednesday the 30th day of March 2022 at 10:00 o’clock in the forenoon for examination over utterances you made while addressing delegates at the UDA Party National Delegates Convention held Kasarani Gymnasium Arena on 15th March 2022,” the letter that was posted on social media read in part.
During his address, the Legislator said that they rigged in President Uhuru Kenyatta. “There are those saying Mt Kenya region votes will be divided. Honorable Waiguru, Rigathi, Wamatangi, Ichung’wa, Muthomi Njuki, Alice Wahome, Faith Gitau are the ones who made Uhuru win the election and we are the ones who stole for him. All the brains that put President Uhuru Kenyatta in that position are here, whatever is in Azimio is just the body,” Kuria said.
After an Online Uproar about the utterances, the Chama Cha Kazi (CCK) Party leader said that he was misunderstood as he meant they sang for President Uhuru together with Singer Ben Githae.
