Moses Wetangula, the leader of the Ford Kenya Party, has addressed claims that he made a deal with a Greek business called Inform Lykos (Hellas) SA Holdings, which was hired by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to print ballots for the general election on August 9th.
Wetangula, one of Kenya Kwanza’s principals, refuted the claims that he was connected to the Greek firm that won a Ksh3 billion contract in a statement on Wednesday.
The contract to supply and deliver ballot papers, a printed voter list, statutory election result declaration forms, and election result declaration forms was given to a Greek company in October 2021.
Wetangula denied allegations that he had a meeting with company representatives to rig the election results on August 9.
“Any letters that claim to be from the Bungoma Senator’s office and were written on letterheads must be forgeries. I’ve never sent letters like that. He said in part, “I do not, and I reiterate, I do not know the three foreigners being referred to.
According to him, any connection between him and the Greek business is harmful and intended to distract the Commission from the need to address other election issues.
In his words, “The spiteful tale is only a diversion from actual election themes of battling corruption, high expense of living, debt burden, state capture, obvious conflicts of interest in the management of public affairs, and of course our imminent and unstoppable win come August 9.”
Finally, he threatened legal action against a local newspaper for publishing what he called inaccurate information and lies.
