Combative Starehe MP Charles Njagua Kanyi alais Jaguar maintains the constituecy’s polls were “free and fair.”
He was testifying in a petition filed by his ODM rival, millionaire businessman-cum politician Steve Mbogo, challenging his election in the August 8 2017 General Election.
Jaguar told justice Fred Ochieng’ that he had no doubt that the Starehe constituency election for the National Assembly seat were conducted in accordance with the law.
The MP told the court that the results alleged by Mbogo to be the true results of the elections portraying him as the winner were “as he believed IEBC announced the true position.”
In the petition filed at Milimani law courts, Mbogo claims a selective manipulation and distortion , of the votes cast and counted and affecting the final tally.
Mbogo has since given a blow by blow account of a seeming systematic interference and manipulation of the results by the Returning Office(RO) .
Jaguar said on the final tally represented the will of the voters.
“The outcome of the votes in the entire voting process proved that I sweated (sic) through my campaigns and rallies and I used a lot of time and energy to traverse the constituency and convince them to elect me,” he said.
Jaguar was however unable to explain whether voters are tallied at polling centres or at the constituency centre.
