More leaders join Murathe in Jubilee rigging claims

Murathe, who is a close ally of President Uhuru, said the repeat process was marred with rigging that saw popular candidates lose. “It started with the Jubilee party nomination. The first day they started creating some commotion in parts of the country and we made a decision to recall it. So the first day nominations flopped,” Murathe said. “When we repeated the second nominations, all hell broke loose because some interested parties rigged out highly popular people, in some of our own areas in Mt Kenya and Rift Valley and planted the people they wanted.” A one-time presidential candidate and 2017 Nairobi gubernatorial candidate Peter Kenneth and former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo had also accused Ruto of rigging them out as they were a threat to his presidential bid.
