In a statement on social media on Sunday, August 14, the MP asked the Head of State to act and secure what he terms Raila’s win.
“President Uhuru Kenyatta you must act now or was this a long con? Baba has won the elections just Protect his win. What’s the point of Kenyans voting if we rig out the winner?” He wrote.
