Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru has alleged rigging in the Kirinyaga gubernatorial race.
Waiguru now wants the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to stop counting votes in the county over the alleged malpractices.
Waiguru alleged that there was stuffing of marked ballot papers at the Kianyaga polling station through the back door.
She says the individuals had included the illegal addition of two governor’s ballot boxes in broad daylight.
“Rigging in broad daylight. Two ballot boxes with the governor’s ballots enter Kianyaga through the back door in broad daylight. They must be removed and counting must stop, ” she said.
Waiguru, the UDA candidate is seeking to defend the seat she won in 2017 under the Jubilee party
She is facing stiff competition from Purity Ngirici, who is running on an independent ticket.
Ngirici is the outgoing woman representative of Kirinyaga county
Provisional results are putting Ngirici ahead of Waiguru
