Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen is expected to lead anti IEBC campaigns from next week. Politicians affiliated to Deputy President William Ruto have criticized the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Chairman, Mr Wafula Chebukati for planning something sinister in the commission.
In a statement, the Elgeyo Marakwet Senator has given the IEBC commissioner, Mr Wafula Chebukati a three days ultimatum to explain the role of Gideon Moi in the commision or face it rough from taxpayers.
“We will not hesitate to remove the jigger in IEBC. This country does not belong to dynasties. Gideon and the old man from Bondo are playing with fire ” Murkomen quipped.
Murkomen sentiments have been echoed by majority leader in the National Assembly, Aden Duale who has repeatedly linked some leaders in the opposition to the IEBC drama.
” I have a full list of who Chebukati meets in these corridors. Junet Mohammed is the sent dog mandated to accomplish conmanship in an institution that should be independent. We will look for the dog’s owner and crush him totally ” Duale said.
Kapseret Member of Parliament, Oscar Sudi has warned members of the opposition not to associate Deputy President William Ruto in useless rhetorics. Speaking today in a Nairobi Hotel, Sudi has maintained his earlier remarks that the opposition through Gideon Moi is manipulating the IEBC staff through black magic.
“It is high time this man should retire from active politics. We cannot tolerate a section of some leaders applying all sorts of evil in this game of politics” Sudi remarked.
