The Jubilee candidate in the Juja by-elections, Susan Njeri, her agents and supporters walked out of the tallying center at Mang’u High School on Wednesday in protest against the ongoing tallying process.
Njeri, who was accompanied by the Kiambu Members of Parliament Caucus Chairman Jude Njomo, stormed out of the center claiming that the entire process was rigged.
She told journalists that she filed a complaint with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission after her votes were allegedly dumped in four polling stations: Jomo Kenyatta Primary School, Gachororo, Theta, and Kalimoni.
She said her complaints fell on deaf ears and the Commission went ahead to count the votes.
“This is so unfair. Ballot papers marked in my favour were dumped in polling stations and despite alerting the IEBC, they did nothing about it. All I want is fresh counting of the votes and I will accept defeat if all votes are counted fairly,” she said.
Njeri stated that if her complaints are not addressed, she will seek legal redress to have the by-elections held afresh.
