Police launch investigations after Jubilee party kibra candidate McDonaild Mariga’s car is destroyed

BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,12TH OCT 2019-A group of unidentified people descended on  a Jubilee Party branded vehicle with stones in Kibra on Saturday destroying it completely  .

The car, presumed to belong to the party’s candidate McDonald Mariga had its windows shattered.

Sources indicate that Mariga was caught with some Sh10 million with the intention of buying Identification cards from voters.

However the party head of communication, Albert Mwemusi said  Sh10 million was an amount too huge for someone to walk around with.

“On the Ksh 10 million allegations, those are petty lies. No one can walk around with such amount of money. Those are unsensational reports out to tarnish our reputation,” Mwemusi told a local blog.

He also condemned the incident and vowed to probe the unfortunate incident further.

“It is unfortunate that the incident has occurred. We (Jubilee) condemn the incident and assure our members that the incident shall be keenly investigated.

This comes days after ODM leaders met with IEBC officers demanding that the latter handover an updated voter register for Kibra.

They accused the commission  of manipulating the Kibra voters register to rig out Imran Okoth.

On Wednesday however, the body’s chairman Wafula Chebukati assured the public that the register will be ready on time before November 7 when the by-election will be conducted.

The IEBC boss said they had received 377 new voters by 2019.

This then means that the current number of registered voters in the area stands at 118,609.
