Narok ODM gubernatorial aspirant Moitalel Ole Kenta has refuted reports in local dailies that indicated he had lost the gubernatorial seat to his opponent Patrick Ntutu of UDA.
Kenta who spoke to journalists at his Narok office said the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) had suspended results from Kilgoris Constituency where he believes he has won by a landslide, so no person had been declared the winner so far.
Kenta alleged that the polling and tallying of the votes in the county was marred with malpractices adding five cases were in court where the Presiding officers had been compromised to rig in favour of Ntutu.
“We have enough evidence that the gubernatorial polls were marred by malpractices. It is very clear that there was a lot of rigging in Narok County,” he said.
The ODM candidate however asked his supporters to be calm as they await the IEBC directions.
Meanwhile, tension is high in the county as supporters of Ntutu were seen celebrating in the streets of Narok town while those of Kenta were camping near the Maasai Mara University awaiting the IEBC major announcement.
Yesterday, the gubernatorial tallying was suspended at Kilgoris Constituency after it emerged that there were some irregularities
The senatorial and women representative positions are expected to be announced later in the day as the gubernatorial results await the IEBC verdict.
