NASA raises concerns over death of second IEBC official
National Super Alliance (NASA) co-principal, Musalia Mudavadi, has raised the red flag over the death of a second Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) official one day after the commission’s ICT Director, Chris Msando, was laid to rest in his Lifunga Kobiero rural home in Ugenya, Siaya County.
Speaking at Milimani Guest House after meeting newly elected leaders in Kakamega, Mudavadi expressed his concerns over the recent deaths of IEBC officials.
“As NASA we are concerned over the death of IEBC officials, we buried slain ICT director Chris Msando just yesterday and now we are hearing that a Deputy Presiding Officer has been found murdered,” Mudavadi said.
The former Deputy Prime Minister also claimed that Returning Officers are being tracked down and ‘coerced’ into altering the content of forms 34A saying the recent developments are meant to tamper with NASA’s ‘evidence’ contained in the presidential petition presented to the Supreme Court on Friday, August 18.
On Saturday, August 19 the body of the 36-year-old Deputy Presiding Officer identified as Caroline Adhiambo was found dumped along a footpath in Sirowa village, Siaya County.
He also expressed confidence that the Supreme Court will rule in their favour once it examines the evidence contained in the presidential petition.
“As NASA we are confident that if the court closely examines our evidence it will rule in our favour and Kenyans will know that IEBC did not deliver a free and fair election.”
The Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, who was meeting leaders from different parts of the country, elected on an ANC ticket said that the leaders are keen on popularizing the party.
“We have different leaders here elected on an ANC ticket mostly from the western region but we also have some who were elected in Nandi, Nyamira and in Coast.”
