Junet tried to justify Raila’s rigging claim, but Twitter had none of it
Suna East MP Junet Mohamed’s tweet trying to justify Raila Odinga’s election rigging claims has been trending since Tuesday, attracting over 700 retweets.
The legislator told off those questioning how the opposition claims the presidential results were rigged when the Jubilee Party won majority of seats in Parliament and Senate.
Junet made an analogy between Mr Odinga and Machakos governor Alfred Mutua who won the gubernatorial seat while his Maendeleo Chap Chap party only got eight county assembly seats.
Actually, Mutua’s party won nine out of the 40 seat in the Machakos County Assembly and not eight as insinuated by Junet.
Here is Junet’s tweet and the replies he got making the tweet to be shared widely;
People are asking how NASA won when they don't have majority in parliament. How did mutua win Machakos when he only has 8 MCAs out of 50

So you mean people were voting raila president and denying him the MPs he crucially needs to govern??? Very poor reasoning.

what people want from NASA is to table evidence of election rigging and not a mere claim.

NASA won it’s only because they had many contestants per constituency unlike Jubilee which had one that’s why Jubilee won most NASA is best

The best thing election cannot be repeated,that’s all, I’m focusing building our nation. Congratulatory mesag from world leader have bn sent
We werent voting for parties in Machakos. We voted mutua in because he is the one to take us to Canaan ile ya ukweli.

That’s a subjective argument ! NASA was beaten fairly & squarely. You can’t Compare a County to a country.

That’s not an evidence of rigging, it’s just analysis which ain’t enough to support rigging claims.

An independent candidate without a single seat can be president. It’s not based on parliamentary seats or governors as some fools argue.
