During a live interview on NTV, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed narrated that his Kapsaret counterpart Oscar Sudi had been chased away by Kibra residents from Lindi Mosque polling station on Thursday, November 7.
Speaking from the polling station as voters trooped in to elect their MP in the Kibra by-election, Mohamed alleged that there were four police officers dressed in civilian clothing from the center, that were asking residents not to participate in the by-elections.
“The policemen have been there since 4 a.m. in the morning and some of them are not from Nairobi and that’s one of the reasons why we have been complaining that IEBC has not been able to do a proper job.
“Oscar Sudi and Benjamin Washiali came at the polling station and they were chased away like dogs because they were helping the policemen to do what they were doing(ask people not to vote),” he claimed.
Additionally, he stated that Sudi had to jump through the fence to avoid the wrath of some of the Kibra residents.
Attempts by Kenyans.co.ke to contact Sudi for a response were futile.
However when we reached his Kimilili counterpart, Didmus Barasa, who had earlier been pictured with him, he refuted the claims adding that several Jubilee MPs had been roughed up by goons paid by the opposition.
“ODM are desperate, what they are doing is chasing away Members of Parliament not allied to their parties, they even tried to rough Oscar Sudi up, they also tried to rough me up so I can say they thrive in violence,” he stated.
He further alleged that Mohamed was a disgrace to the country, arguing that he was sponsoring the violence.
“A person like Junet [Mohamed] or John Mbadi giving boys money so that Tangatanga MPs can be chased away, that is completely unacceptable,” he remarked.
