Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has claimed the Kenya Kwanza team has received information of an alleged plan to rig elections in Kirinyaga County.
Waiguru who did not mention names claimed they received the information from DOs, clerks, the police and chiefs who she said belong to the ‘Hustler Nation’.
The governor who was speaking to the press on Monday claimed that the DOs and a section of the clerks, police and chiefs who are allegedly being used to do the rigging by their opponents support the hustler team which is Deputy President William Ruto’s hustler nation.
Waiguru has however assured the Kirinyaga residents that their votes will be protected urging them to turn out in large numbers.
“We have gotten credible information that there are serious undertaking to rig the presidential and the other six seats in Kirinyaga County. We want to assure the residents of Kirinyaga that their votes will be safe,” said Waiguru.
“We want to caution those who are planning to do the rigging, you will not succeed because the entire sector that you are using from the DOs, the clerks to the police and to the chiefs are all hustler nation and they have given us the information and the instructions they have been given,” added Waiguru.
