Edwin Sifuna Comes Clean on Khalwale's Kibra Robbery [VIDEO]

  • ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna made a confession during an interview at Radio Citizen on Thursday, November 14, when he was responding to allegations of violence during the Kibra by-election.

    Sifuna admitted that former Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale was robbed in the confrontation with the rowdy youth.

    The ODM man further stated that the money was in the custody of Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and they were planning to hold a party with it.

    "Go ask Khalwale how much money he lost in Kibra on that day, if he is an honest man he will tell you. The money is in the custody of Junet and we are planning a party with it," Sifuna stated.

    Former Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale carries stones to defend himself as rival groups engage each other at DC grounds in Kibera on November 7, 2019, during Kibra By-elections.

    He added that the youth in Kibra were not attacking jubilee supporters or leaders but just targeted the people that were alleged to have been bribing voters in the area.

    "Mariga went to Old Kibera Primary school and left unharmed, so did South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro who came to where I was. we had a short chat where I told him we will floor them early and he agreed and left. If it was violence there was no polling station that could have been accessible,

    "But we did not do that we were looking for those who were trying to bribe voters," he added.

    When asked why they had not presented the money to the police as evidence of the electoral crime in the Kibra by-election.

    Sifuna responded by stating that none of the leaders who claimed to have been assaulted in Kibra had made an official complaint to the police and thus the money was in no way evidence.

    "The police commander in Nairobi has confirmed that no one had complained of having lost any money but we know because we have it," The ODM Secretary-General concluded.
