Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula has taught the deputy president William Samoei Ruto a political lesson in the Kabuchai parliamentary elections.
Although the results being declared are still preliminary, the Ford Kenya candidate Majimbo Kalasinga Wekesa Simiyu is taking an early lead with a very wide range against William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidate Mr. Evans Kaikai.
The Kabuchai election began on high tension which saw leaders allied to the deputy president William Ruto get arrested for allegedly committing electoral offence. The leaders were Kimilili member of parliament Didmus Baraza, Nandi senator Samson Cherargei and Honorable Kogo.
The Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula had been rooting for his candidate in a spirited campaign that was attended by various leaders amongst them Kalonzo Musyoka, Gideon Moi and Musalia Mudavadi.
In another election in Matungu constituency, there was a lot of commotions and violence with former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa caught on a live camera slapping an Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) returning officer.
Although it is still not very clear what the bone of contention was, Mr. Echesa alleged without providing evidence that the IEBC officials chased their agents from the room.
“You cannot chase our agents outside…my friend…why are you chasing them outside?” Posed Echesa after slapping the returning officer.
