    The DCI promised to release a formal statement later regarding Kuria's remarks that will go a long way in giving leads for quick action.

    The Gatundu lawmaker had calimed that the state had hatched a scheme to rig the election in favour the Azimio One Kenya Coalition.

    The lawmaker alleged that trucks with marked ballot papers were seen leaving Nakuru State Lodge to various destinations, a day the Tuesday, August 9.

    “Top Alert!! 40 trucks with marked ballot papers will leave State Lodge Nakuru to various destinations in the next 20 minutes. Most of them have GK registration numbers,” Kuria stated.

    The MP who was monitoring the distribution of ballot papers for Kenya Kwanza in Embu stated that they were on high alert in a bid to protect Kenya Kwanza Votes at all costs.

    Kuria further claimed that the deep state and the system were overrated and that they have managed to stop the plans by the state to rig elections.

    Deputy President William Ruto and his allies, during campaigns, claimed were part of the government's plan to influence the outcome of the polls.

    They alleged that chiefs were buying Identification Cards from the Kazi Mtaani recruits all over the country to deny them a chance to vote on Tuesday.

    “To all Kazi Mtaani recruits in Nakuru and all over the country. They have called you to work today and asked you to go and surrender your IDs for you to get paid. If the chiefs do so please place a very hard and hot slap on their face then see me for lunch,” Kuria posted.

    The MP is contesting for the Kiambu gubernatorial seat on his party Chama Cha Kazi which is affiliated to Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza.
