Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has come up with the perfect conspiracy theory on the October 26 fresh presidential election.

Mr Murkomen, who is the Jubilee Majority Leader in the Senate, says Nasa leader Raila Odinga will actually take part in the election, but not on October 26.

“Raila plan is as follows (1)… On 26th he will make a statement that his strong holds do not vote, (2)… jubilee voters will not turn out in good numbers because they are sure uhuru would win, and gets about 4m votes around 50% voter turnout, (3)… IEBC has the constitutional mandate to repeat elections where they did not take place so they will schedule election for those suspended areas let say on 31st October,” Mr Murkomen wrote on his Facebook.


“Then Raila comes out and campaigns thoroughly and ensure 100% turnout in NASa strong holds and celebrate if he beats uhurus numbers.


While Mr Odinga has withdrawn from the repeat poll and said there will be no election on Thursday, President Uhuru Kenyatta has gone on campaign overdrive and insisted that the election must be held on that day.
