Murang’a Women Representative, Sabina Chege on Thursday, February 10, responded to claims by Kenya Kwanza Alliance that the Azimio la Umoja plans to rig the upcoming General Elections slated for August 9, 2022.
Speaking during an Azimio campaign in Vihiga County, Chege told off Deputy President William Ruto, who claimed that there was a wider scheme to rig him out of the country’s top seat in favour of Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga.
The County Member of Parliament hinted that the DP was well aware of how the ruling party, Jubilee, came into power.
She subtly confirmed claims that Jubilee might employed unconventional methods to win previous elections and they were willing to do something similar this year.
“In Central I have heard them saying that we stole the elections . There is some truth in that. They should know that if we knew how to steal in the previous elections, what makes you think we will not do something ,” the Women Rep claimed.
The outspoken legislator, who has since warmed up to the Azimio faction, told the residents of Vihiga that that the only way to ensure the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader ascends to power, was through their vote.
She also agreed with claims by the Kenya Kwanza brigade that Raila was a project. However, she clarified that he was only the people’s project since he had their backing countrywide.
“Baba has walked with the people and has become their project. Now we want to make him the people’s president. I urge to to turn up and vote because we already know that we have the numbers,” remarked Chege.
Chege also referred to the pact formed by United Democratic Alliance (UDA), Ford Kenya and the Amani National Congress(ANC) as an alliance centred on two tribes and not an national party.
President Uhuru Kenyatta’s succession has further strained his relationship with his Deputy, whom he accused of abandoning his government duties prematurely to start campaigning for his presidential bid.
On February 7, Uhuru, who had been taking in constant jabs from Ruto and his allies finally clapped back at the former. He told the DP that the time had come for him (Uhuru) to join politics.
“There is time for work and there is time for politics. Now we are going into the season of politics, and everybody has the freedom including those who had a head start. I told you, this is a
“I may not have a project, but I will also cast a vote for somebody whom I trust. And if there will be one or two people who will listen to what I have to say, then I will tell them where my vote lies,” stated the Head of State.
