A key witness National Super Alliance (Nasa) plans to parade before the Supreme Court in the suit challenging the reelection of President Uhuru Kenyatta claims his life is in danger.
Moses Wamuru, the Embu County ODM chairman who served as the Embu county chief agent for ODM in the August 8th general elections said that unknown people have been trailing him.
Speaking to journalists in Embu town, the visibly terrified official also said that his fellow party agents had also been summoned to the local Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) offices in what said was “a move to amend Forms 34A”, a claim IEBC denies.
Wamuru is among key witnesses in Raila's petition against President Uhuru Kenyatta’s win. He has recorded a statement in a sworn affidavit on alleged election irregularities.
“I do not feel secure. In the last three days I have noticed people trailing me. I have been receiving information from very close friends in places that I frequent. I have visited several entertainment joints and people have told me I am not safe there,” said Wamuru.
“However, I am not cowed… any amount of intimidation cannot change what has been written. Those who feel aggrieved by my revealing of the truth, must wait to prove their innocence in a court of law.”
Wamuru said that opposition agents were harassed and frustrated on voting day and were ejected to stop them from witnessing most of the voting and vote tallying process.
“We didn't witness voting in various stations since many of the agents were chased away,” he claimed.
Asked whether they signed results forms, he said:
“You never expected us to sign since our agents were not there. Many of our agents are calling me and saying they have been called by various returning officers to go and help them sign forms 34A. Any form being signed now is suspicious because the work of agents ended on the Election Day.”
He gave Ngurueri polling station in Kianjokoma as an example where presidential ballot papers run out before others but voting went on.
He also named Karurumo polling centre claiming people were handed multiple presidential ballot papers.
Embu County IEBC coordinator Dan Lenarum however, denied the office had summoned Nasa agents.
“We have not talked to any party agents. The people we have called are presiding officers and they are part of our defence,” he said.
