Moses Kuria has spilled the beans on how top Jubillee party leaders planned election rigging in 2017.
Kuria said that leaders including former Mukurweini MP Kabando wa Kabando and Martha Karua, who stood for Kirinyaga County governor but lost to incumbent Anne Waiguru, were rigged out.
He spoke during his thanksgiving ceremony in Thika on Saturday.
“Even if I was not the cook in that kitchen, I used to carry salt, so I know all that transpired,” the Gatundu South MP revealed.
He went on to say that the Jubilee party rigged out incumbent MP Patrick Wainaina in favor of former MP Alice Nga’nga in the Thika parliamentary campaign.
Wainaina went on and campaigned as an independent candidate defeating Nga’nga.
Kuria alleged in a thinly veiled statement that the rigging was arranged by numerous prominent party leaders.
The Gatundu South MP’s remarks come less than a week after Murang’a Woman Representative Sabina Chege said in Vihiga County that the 2017 general elections were rigged in favor of some politicians, and that the rigging could be repeated in the August 9 general elections in favor of ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Sabina has already been summoned to appear before a committee of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for her rigging accusations.
