Chebukati neighbour’s vehicles set ablaze after declaration – PHOTOS
Five lorries, a saloon car, a tractor and maize store belonging to a neighbour of IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati in Kiminini, Trans Nzoia County, were Friday night set ablaze in unclear circumstances.
There were false reports circulated on the social media indicating that the home of the chairman had been set on fire after the announcement of the presidential results on Friday night.
The chairman’s home was intact when the Nation visited on Saturday.
On Saturday, Trans Nzoia County Commissioner Ann Gakuria said she was aware of the incident but said disgruntled workers were behind the fire.
The farmer declined to comment.
Mr Chebukati declared the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta saying he had garnered 8, 203, 290 votes and bypassed the requisite conditions to be declared elected.
His rival Mr Raila Odinga has contested results saying the 6, 762, 224 votes were not a true representation of what he got.
