Coalition for Reforms and Democracy claims TNA is behind Kethi’s nomination nullification

The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) has accused TNA of tampering with the electoral voter register and deleting Kethi Kilonzo’s name.

The accusations come a day after Monday’s ruling by the Disputes Resolution Panel of the IEBC which revoked the nomination of Kethi Kilonzo, knocking her out of the Makueni Senatorial by-election.

“Of concern is the manner in which TNA, a major player in the Jubilee Coalition raised the issue of Kethi's voter registration status without the knowledge of the electoral body, begging the question of who is the custodian of the IEBC's vote register. This clearly shows that TNA is IEBC and IEBC is TNA. TNA must have tampered with the voter register, hence deleting Kethi's name”, Kalonzo Musyoka said.

CORD also warned of a major political battle even as their lawyers finalised on court papers to appeal IEBC’s ruling that locked out Kethi.

 “This is a major political war against CORD, disguised as a legal battle in an obvious attempt to impose a leader on the good people of Makueni. It is clear that Jubilee vehemently tried all means possible to lure Ms Kethi to run for the seat that was held by her late father Sen. Mutula Kilonzo on any of its affiliate parties, an attempt that didn't bear fruits, hence their resolve to frustrate her candidacy”, said Kalonzo.
