Who are DP Ruto's Korean friends?
10 May 2016, 19:56
Nairobi - DP William Ruto has Korean friends helping him to rig the 2017 elections in favour of the Jubilee Coalition, they say.
According to the CORD Coalition, the DP is using his Korean contacts to help the Jubilee Coalition rig the 2017 polls.
The DP, they say, has sent close ally Thomas Letangule an IEBC commissioner to meet the Koreans and chart a way of ensuring the Jubilee Coalition returns to power.
" We have evidence that the IEBC is being used by the Jubilee Coalition to rig the 2017 polls. We know that in recent times the IEBC has been conducting business with a close contact to the DP," CORD leader Raila Odinga says.
CORD wants the IEBC broken down and built afresh ahead of the 2017 polls but the Jubilee Coalition is playing hard ball, thus the theory from CORD.
IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba says that the theories are untrue.
" They are untrue simply," he said when contacted by News24.
On the part of the Jubilee Coalition, Majority Leader in the National Assembly Aden Duale says that the stories can be classified as hogwash.
" The opposition senses defeat already so they are trying to use diversionary tactics," he accused.
The CORD Coalition is currently protesting over the existence of the IEBC.
