KOT react to Sabina Chege Uhuruto vote-rigging claim
Sabina Chege has sensationally suggested that President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto benefitted from a rigged election in 2017.
The Murang’a Women Representative made the claim at a campaign rally in Western Kenya.
But she did not share proof.
“I’ve heard some people here saying we rigged (the elections) here, there’s some truth in it,” said Chege, a close ally of President Kenyatta.
She added that it is still possible to rig in Raila Odinga, whom she currently supports, during the August 2022 polls.
“So if we managed to rig, even this one we can. They (Ruto team) think they are the smartest.”

President Kenyatta and his DP Ruto beat Odinga by more than 800,000 votes to clinch a second-term in office in 2017.
But the Supreme Court nullified the elections results, with then Chief Justice David Maraga citing illegalities and irregularities during the electioneering process.
Maraga further ordered a repeat of the elections but Odinga and his supporters boycotted the exercise, leading to a landslide win by the Uhuru and Ruto who have since fallen out on a political level.
Chege’s remarks have since brought various reactions on social media.
Sabina Chege teased DP Ruto at his rigging game leading to mega distraction and chill waves all over DP Ruto's camp.
