A section of opposition leaders in Narok have claimed that the Jubilee administration was planning to import voters from outside with an intention of rigging out vocal community leaders in the next general election.
The leaders led by ODM gubernatorial aspirant Joseph Tiampati, Narok North MP Moitalel ole Kenta, ODM Vice Chair (National) Christine Lemein and former Narok County Council Chair Kelena Nchoe alleged that 50,000 voters are set to be imported to rig out some leaders.
They claimed that there was a plot by the Jubilee administration to suppress the Maasai community across the country through outside votes and frustration of voter registration in some areas.
The leaders also raised concern over the slow voter registration and attributed it to lack of voter sensitization program by the electoral body IEBC.
“We have information that Jubilee has shrewd plans to ensure that some leaders who are perceived to be fighting for community rights in Maasai land.In Narok,Kajiado and Samburu but we are warning them never to try,”said Tiampati.
The leaders also issued a 14-day ultimatum to IEBC South Rift region office to be moved from Bomet to Narok to avert election fraud. The ODM leaders also warned their followers against taking the Jubilee Party smart cards claiming there has been propaganda doing rounds that by taking the cards they will also take part in ODM primaries which is a lie.
“We are telling our supporters not to take the Jubilee smart card because,for doing so they will be turned to Jubilee members and will not be able to take part in ODM nomination exercise.Just wait for our membership cards,”urged Tiampati.
On his part,ole Kenta echoed the sentiments on importation of voters terming those who will accept to be moved from outside the county to register terming them as criminals who should be prosecuted for committing an election malpractice.
