Nominated senator Isaac Mwaura has blamed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government after loosing the United Democratic Alliance primaries in Ruiru Constituency.
Mwaura, who was eyeing the MP seat on the UDA ticket, lost to incumbent MP Simon Kingara.
Speaking on Friday, Mwaur faulted the state for being part of the rigging claims saying the police aided the exercise.
“It is not fair after having invested for this exercise then receive this kind of shambolic exercise,” he said.
He also dismissed the results saying there were some irregularities.
He argues that results were the same in several polling stations, something he says is impossible to happen.
“As far as I am concerned this election is null and void,” Mwaura said.
He accused the MP of botching the exercise claiming that the MP spent most of the time in a particular polling station contrary to the law.
“What we are demanding, first of all, is that we should have serious investigations. We are making a formal appeal and as far as we are concerned the UDA party should dismiss the results because it is null and void,” he said.
