Elgeyo Marakwet Senator-elect Kipchumba Murkomen has claimed that Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party agents at the Bomas of Kenya did not know what their roles were.
In a statement on Wednesday, August 24, Murkomen said that while William Ruto’s agents were busy scrutinizing forms 34A (which bears presidential results from polling stations), Raila’s agents were on the other hand heckling that the elections have being rigged.
Murkomen, a fierce critic of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga said his people did not have any document at the national presidential tallying center.
“At Bomas (of Kenya) we had copies of forms 34A from our agents and scrutinized meticulously all the results. Towards the end, a few of us didn’t sleep for 3 nights,
“Azimio agents didn’t have documents and didn’t bother to scrutinize anything only heckling, taunting us, and targeting our laptops and phones,” Murkome said in a Tweet.
His comments come just a day after Uasin Gishu Woman Rep-elect Gladys Boss Shollei alleged that former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s agents at Bomas didn’t work for him.
Shollei said most of those agents at Bomas came empty-handed to Bomas and sat there as spectators instead of helping to verify Raila’s presidential results from their agents.
“I feel sorry for Raila Odinga, his agents came to Bomas empty-handed. Their job was to shout Gladys is stealing. His people lied to him, they don’t work for him,” Shollei said.
Last week, verification of presidential elections was suspended for several hours after Raila Odinga’s Chief agent Saitabao Ole Kanchory alleged that some IEBC officials were colluding with their opponents to alter results and sneak in Forms 34 A.
At one instant, Raila’s chief agent Saitabao Ole Kanchory walked to the VIP dais where IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati and his team seats.
He grabbed a microphone and said: “I want to tell Kenyans that Bomas is a crime scene,”
