Embakasi East Member of Parliament Babu Owino has asked President William Ruto to move on from the 2022 general election.
In a statement on Tuesday, January 17, the second-term ODM MP asked President Ruto to focus on working for Kenyans instead of engaging himself in the 2022 general election talks.
“Can the President and Chebukati stop making noise to Kenyans about the past election. It is water under the bridge. Mr.President, it’s time to stop singing and start swinging. Work for the People of Kenya,” he tweeted.
His sentiments came hours after the Head of State revealed that there was a plot to kidnap and murder former IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati during the August 9 general elections.
“We know that there was a direct attempt to abduct Wafula Chebukati and murder him so that the commission would be paralysed, or a compliant commissioner take over and subvert the people’s sovereignty,” President Ruto claimed on Tuesday, January 17.
He added, "We now know that Chairman Wafula Chebukati, commissioners Abdi Yakub Guliye & Boya Molu as well as the CEO, Hussein Marjan, and their staff, were offered stupendous financial rewards to cooperate with the agents of impunity, but they bravely resisted."
