Kirinyaga governor candidate Wangui Ngirici has hit back at incumbent Governor Anne Waiguru over claims of vote rigging.
“The only back door that we know was at NYS during your tenure. TUPO SITE!” Ngirici said in a statement on Wednesday.
Waiguru alleged that two ballot boxes were sneaked into the Kianyaga tallying centre during the vote counting process.
“Two ballot boxes with governors’ ballot enter Kirinyaga through the back door in broad dayllight! They MUST be removed and tallying MUST stop,” the governor tweeted.
Waiguru also accused Ngirici of deploying goons at Kianyaga tallying centre to “disrupt vote tallying.”
Ngirici, who is running as an independent candidate, on Tuesday said she is confident with the voting exercise.
Tallying of votes is currently ongoing as the country awaits the official declaration of winners from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
