Kalonzo Musyoka: TNA deleted Kethi’s name from voters roll

Former Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka has accused TNA of deleting Ms Kethi Kilonzo’s name from the voters’ register, locking her out of the Makueni by-election.
“TNA is IEBC and IEBC is TNA. TNA must have tampered with the voter register, hence deleting Kethi’s name,” Mr Musyoka told a press conference in Nairobi on Tuesday.
Ms Kilonzo had been cleared by the Wiper Democratic Party, which Mr Musyoka leads, to vie for the Makueni senatorial seat left vacant by the death of her father, Mutula Kilonzo.
Wiper Democratic Party is allied to Cord which lost the March 4 General Election to the Jubilee Alliance. The alliance comprises The National Alliance (TNA) and the United Republican Party (URP). TNA is led by President Uhuru Kenyatta while URP is led by Deputy President William Ruto.
Mr Musyoka said TNA was working with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to lock out Ms Kilonzo from the senatorial race slated for July 22.
“Of concern is the manner in which TNA, a major player in the Jubilee Coalition, raised the issue of Kethi’s voter registration status without the knowledge of the electoral body, begging the question of who is the custodian of the IEBC vote register,” he said.
However, TNA secretary general Onyango Oloo denied the claims and told Cord to carry its own cross.
“No scape-goat, no blame game will clean Wiper and Cord’s act of trying to hoodwink Kenyans that its candidate presented a legal document for clearance to vie for the seat,” Mr Oloo said in a telephone interview.
He said TNA has no business interfering with the will of Kenyans.
Even as Cord was protesting, IEBC on Tuesday gazetted the names of the four candidates who will contest in the by-election.
They are former MP Philip Kaloki (Narc), Mr Urbanus Katumo Muthoka (an independent candidate), Jane Wavinya Muoka (Labour Party of Kenya) and Mr John Harun Mwau (Pick).
Commission chairman Ahmed Issack Hassan also gazetted 125 polling centres in Makueni County ahead of the by-election.
Mr Hassan’s notice is dated July 8, the same day the IEBC tribunal ruled on Ms Kilonzo’s eligibility case.
