Chebukati dismisses Moses Kuria’s claims
Earlier on, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) dismissed Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria’s allegations that a vehicle belonging to the electoral agency was spotted conducting voting at a certain plantation.
“The car in question is an IEBC vehicle being used by Commission staff who are providing technical support to the polling process. The post by Moses Kuria is, therefore, a false allegation,” said IEBC in a statement.
