‘Bull-fighter’ Khalwale fights back at IEBC results declaring Oparanya winner
Former Kakamega Senator also known as ‘The Bull-fighter’ Boni Khalwale has disputed results from the governor race that put incumbent Wycliffe Oparanya ahead.
County returning officer Grace Rono declared Oparanya winner with an overwhelming 387,999 votes, while Khalwale received 134,999.
“As Ford Kenya, we dismiss and reject these results as they do not reflect the will of the people but a generation of the computers,” Khalwale claimed on Friday.
He claimed to have evidence that a county executive deposited money into the returning officer’s bank account. But he did not present this evidence.
Khalwale also claimed the IEBC were recruiting clerks who were either relatives to Jubilee candidates or employees of the Kakamega county government with a clear purpose of rigging the elections.
But he declined to state if he will challenge the results in court, saying he decided to handle the matter politically.
“We want police to demand for a statement from the bank and establish whether it received money on voting day or not,” he said.
He alleged that Oparanya worked with Jubilee to assist in winning seats in the county so he would return to office.
