A key witness in the ongoing petition in which the National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, is challenging Uhuru Kenyatta’s win in the August 8 polls, now claims some people want him dead.
The Embu county ODM Chairman, Moses Wamuru, says his life is now in danger, just days before Kenyans are treated to a rare display at the Supreme Court.
The Embu resident is one of Raila’s key witnesses in the petition filed against President Kenyatta’s win by the Opposition and now claims that unknown people have been trailing him for the past three days.
Wamuru said on Tuesday, August 22, that his fellow party agents had been summoned by the local Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) office amid alleged amendments to Form 34As.
The said forms are key in the presidential poll as they show the final tally of polling centres and its contents are used to tabulate Form 34Bs at the constituency level.
“I am being intimidated because of my stand on the elections. I witnessed several irregularities at various polling stations in the county. I do not feel secure. I have been trailed by three cars. My friends have told me I am not even safe in the joints I hang out at,” Wamuru noted.
He however says he will not be intimidated and that his stance will not be changed. He asked those who are upset by the truth he is standing with, to prove their innocence in court.
He went on to add that Nasa agents are being harassed two weeks after the elections concluded.
“Many of our agents were chased away from polling stations so we did not witness the voting. You never expected us to sign since our agents were not there. Now Returning Officers are calling us to go and sign those forms. Any form being signed now is suspicious because the work of agents ended on the election day,” the Nation quoted Wamuru.
The Orange Party official further claimed that irregularities were rampant in Embu saying he witnessed them at Karurumo and Ngureri polling centres where people were either given multiple presidential ballot papers, or the papers ran out before potential voters could cast their vote.
