Former Mungiki leader Maina Njenga alleges that he is the duly elected Laikipia County senator but Jubilee and Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials colluded to rig him out in the August 8th elections.
Njenga locked horns with Kinyua Nderitu of Jubilee Party in the race for Laikipia senate seat. He claimed that the August polls results for the seat were doctored to give his rival an outright victory.
Kinyua Nderitu was declared the winner of the seat after garnering 145,150 votes against Maina Njenga’s 53,177.
The former Mungiki leader, however said he would not challenge the victory in court because "doing so would not change results."
"It is my view the electoral outcome was already predetermined to favor my opponent even before the voting kicked off. My moving to court will be a waste of time and resources at least for now," he said.
Njenga said he will instead embarked on preaching peace and unity among Laikipia residents. "Disputing results will only bring about disputes among Laikipia residents and may not give a lasting solution", he said. "My resolve to be an ambassador of peace is well informed to unite people for a better tomorrow."
"Good leaders are chosen by God and so I believe my turn to lead the people of Laikipia is yet to come, but surely it will," he said.
