Allies of Deputy President William Ruto claim President Uhuru Kenyatta is directly involved in plans to ensure the presidential elections are rigged in favor of ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Speaking from parliament buildings on Wednesday, the legislators, led by Kandara MP Alice Wahome alleged the rigging plans involving security forces to win the presidency are underway.
”These public officers cannot be doing all these without the signature of President Uhuru Kenyatta, I want to tell him (President) that he is lighting fire in the country by using public resources to campaign for Raila Odinga. With what is happening currently there is preparation to rig presidential elections in favour of Raila Odinga, they are using State machinery to rig elections and apply resources in favour of one candidate,” the MP said.

Her remarks were backed by Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua who says Interior CS Dr Fred Matiangi was too partisan to hold the current docket he is currently in.
“Matiang’i is partisan and any election management he is part of cannot be free and fair. I want to ask the President to call to order Matiang’i and Kibicho. They have all purposes abandoned their work, and joined Raila’s campaign machinery,” Gachagua told a press conference at Parliament Buildings.
This is not the first time DP William Ruto’s allies in UDA are alleging a plot to manipulate the polls in favor of the ODM boss.
