Murang’a Governor Mwangi wa Iria who is seeking the presidency interrogated why his name had been removed from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission schedule yet he submitted all the initial requirements despite IEBC claiming he had not met the threshold for signatures.
“Even people who failed to meet requirements are in the schedule but my name has been removed… no election will be conducted if I will not contest,” he threatened.
Wa Iria insisted that he met all the requirements including bringing signatures from supporters in 24 counties as required and the commission even acknowledged receipt.
“We cannot start rigging that far… We even have photos of your people going through item per item with our people,” Wa Iria protested.
“They have deliberately removed my name today by throwing them in the toilet. How comes no one has told me anything!” the governor questioned..
Following the upheaval, the governor was scheduled to meet IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati on Monday to have his matter addressed.
He however said he will not leave the building until his queries were addressed
“I am not leaving this place, even if you send me the Russian troops,” he said, demanding an audience from Chebukati.
Wa Iria had recently unveiled Alfayo Onyambu as his running mate ahead of the August elections.
