Nakuru - The Jubilee party has been accused of using the NYS loot to bribe Kericho voters ahead of the senatorial by-election set for March 7.
KANU secretary general, Nick Salat said that huge bundles of money are being ferried into the County at night to bribe voters with the aim of convincing them to vote for the Jubilee candidate, Aaron Cheruiyot in the heated mini poll.
Salat said they have video evidence of stashes of cash in boxes being offloaded and ferried to the villages to bribe voters.

Salat, who spoke Tuesday morning in Nakuru town said they have presented the evidence to IEBC and wondered why no action had been taken up to now.
“We know that the NYS loot is now being ferried to Kericho at night to bribe voters and we have even told the IEBC and presentend evidence but they are yet to take any action and that keeps us wondering whether they are favoring one side or are afraid of doing their work,” said Salat.
He added: “The money is being distributed by government operatives including chiefs and their assistants and this work is being done at night.”
He however said that KANU will carry the day with or without voter bribery because the people of Kericho have already decided.
