Murang’a woman rep gives Ekuru hard tackle

Murang’a woman representative Sabina Chege has given presidential candidate Ekuru Aukot an online knockout that excited Kenyans on Twitter.

Ms Chege, during a Tuesday morning TV interview, said she would advise the Thirdway Alliance presidential candidate not to go to court.

Dr Aukot has indicated that he would be seeking an interpretation from the courts on who should take part in the fresh presidential election.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on Monday announced that fresh polls would take place on October 17.

The commission said only President Uhuru Kenyatta and Nasa’s Raila Odinga names will be on the ballot.

Dr Aukot on that basis termed the commission’s declaration as unfair to other candidates stating that he would seek court interpretation on who should take part in the fresh elections.


But in her advice to Aukot, Ms Chege said: “I think Ekuru Aukot has a right to go to court, although I would advise him not to, based on the votes he got.”

Ekuru replied to the statement that was tweeted by Citizen TV saying, “Tell Sabina Joy or is it Sabina Chege that even the votes she got could be VIFARANGA VYA KOMPYUTA.”

The reply was widely shared and users took screenshots before the presidential candidate deleted it.

Sabina did not however spare Aukot as she told him that even one of the MCAs in her county had more votes than the 27,400 he garnered.

She went on to flaunt her 391,923 votes telling Aukot to only engage her in a conversation on getting such.
