More aspirants refuse to concede defeat

11 March 2013, 14:15 Mwangi Karanja

Aspirants who were vying for the various elective seats in the just concluded general election in Trans Nzoia County have resolved to contest the election results in court.

Forestry and Wildlife minister Noah Makhalang’ang’a Wekesa (ODM) who was vying for the gubernatorial seat claimed that the elections were rigged in favour of his opponent Patrick khaemba who was declared winner by the IEBC.

Wekesa who is also former Member of Parliament for Kwanza constituency alluded that there was a plan to deny him the seat as the results releases in some constituency were different from what he received from ODM party agents.

The Wildlife minister nearly clashed with the Kitale deputy police OCPD who was manning the Kwanza constituency tallying center at the St. Monica’s girls, Kitale, after he was denied entrance.

“Something fishy is happening here. Why are the results released here are different from what I have? I want to know why but am being blocked from accessing the tallying office,” Wekesa said.

He reiterated that he had been intimidated by the deputy OCPD but the police boss was heard saying that the minister was using his power to devalue others.

In Endebes constituency, Joshua Werunga (FK) who was vying for the parliamentary seat also insisted that the court would be the solution for the results which he said were ‘not representing the will of people’.

Another aspirant who lost and refused to concede the defeat is Isaac Gatitu (TNA), eying for the senatorial seat, alleging that the electoral body failed to respond to the irregularity cases brought to them.

KaKai Bissau (NFK) who was vying for the gubernatorial seat claimed that a certain polling center allowed voters to vote till midnight which he said was against the constitution.

Bissau said that according to the results released in one polling center, an aspirant got more than 100% of votes cast.

He urged the IEBC to give them an explanation as to why other polling stations were allowed to vote till midnight.

“We want the IEBC to nullify all results that still have disputes as we want fairness because Kenya is a democratic nation," he added.
