Embakasi East MP Babu Owino declared that ODM party would take action against IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati over the scheduled Kibra by-election.

Through a tweet, Babu stated that they would frog march Chebukati to Uhuru Park if the election was rigged.

The statement by the controversial lawmaker came hours after the party had met with the head of the electoral body over the disputed Kibra voter register.

“Today we met IEBC chairman Wafula chebukati and we will frogmarch him to Uhuru park if he rig us out.” expressed Babu.

The manner in which the party arrived at the IEBC offices earlier was contradictory to the statement issued by the group on Tuesday over the matter.

ODM had stated that the would hold demonstrations at the premises due to being denied the register after making numerous request to obtain it.

The group stated that they would handle things in a more calm manner as they sought answers from the body.

According to the party, the electoral body had refused to observe the law as specified in the Elections Act (2015) after having written to the body three times.

The efforts by ODM were however mocked by Jubilee party member Kipchumba Murkomen, who insinuated that they had started fearing losing the election.

Murkomen, had alleged that their rivals had begun panicking and resorted to such actions as the big day drew closer.
