Azimio defends Junet and addresses disappearance of agents money.
Azimio defends Junet and addresses the agents issue saying that the claims of funds mismanagement was false.
Through the spokesman Makau,he defended Junet Mohammed saying that , Junet was a campaign leader who did not handle money meant for agents.
They stated,”We have seen shameful and disgusting attacks on some members of our Campaign on the question of agents. Defamatory and obviously false allegations of the misappropriation of campaign funds are flying on social media. Specifically, I have seen scurrilous attacks on Hon. Junet Mohamed accusing him of misappropriating funds meant for agents.”
“Let me state without equivocation that Hon Mohamed was a campaign lead in the field supporting the Rt Hon. Raila Odinga. He at no time-even once-handled funds meant for agents. Nor did Mr Mohamed have anything whatsoever to do with the management of agents.” Makau added.
This comes after some individuals accused Suna East member of parliament, Junet Mohammed of improper management of funds meant for agents, hence costing Raila Presidency.
Other reports also stated that during the general elections, Azimio la Umoja lacked agents in some polling stations in the country.
Makau however, rubbished the claims saying the agents did their job and they did not in any way contribute to their stolen votes.
He said,”Importantly, let me state clearly that the issue of agents was not the cause of a bungled election. We must appreciate that it is not the responsibility of candidates to protect the vote, or conduct a free and fair election.”
“ That constitutional duty lies squarely with the IEBC working in concert with relevant institutions. No one should blame Azimio or our candidates for stolen votes or a fatally flawed election.” Makau added.
This comes after the supreme court of Kenya dismissed the election petition filed by Azimio la Umoja coalition.
