Jubilee officials bribing Homa Bay voters, claims ODM

12 February 2015, 13:00 Victor Tinto in Homa Bay

Nairobi - Bribery allegations have rocked the Homa Bay by elections, with both sides of the divide accusing each other of misdemeanours.

The elections took off early Thursday in all 821 polling stations in the vast county, with no incidents of violence being reported.

However, there were allegations of bribery from the two main rivals, Orange Democratic Movement ODM's Moses Kajwang and Maendeleo Party of Kenya's Philip Okundi.

Okundi's team alleged that Kajwang was using his party agents to bribe voters into voting for him, an allegation refuted by Kajwang, who hit back at his opponent.

" My people tell me that there are agents belonging to ODM who have been bribing voters. I ask the IEBC to do something about it, he told News24.

Kajwang though, also accused Okundi's team of bribery, saying that he had evidence of a vehicle being used by the former Rangwe MP to gain an unfair advantage.

" Jubilee Agents operating in a Silver Toyota Prado KBQ 491V are dishing money in Homabay for people to vote for Philip Okundi, said Kajwang's aide.

The two front-runners are seeking to replace the departed Senator Gerald Otieno Kajwang who died in November of cardiac arrest.

Voting will close at 6 PM local time with results expected to be announced Friday.
