James Nyoro has come out to deny any involvement in the chaos experienced in the Juja By-elections that saw the IEBC halt vote tallying at the center.
In a video doing rounds on social media, the Kiambu Governor is seen in a heated exchange of words with security agents at the center.
However, Nyoro has denied any involvement saying that he was misinterpreted and the clip is only meant to defame him.
“The clip does not tell it all. I had asked a simple question to the IEBC officials before our opponents started a shouting match. I was seated and calmly seeking answers on some observations that I had noted,” he said.
“We were not involved in any chaos. We all know who are violent in nature. People are busy tarnishing my name for no reason. I condemn in the strongest terms possible the insinuation that I’m a violent person. I have never been violent even during my campaigns,” he added.
On a press release, former Kiambu Governor, William Kabogo urged the winner and looser to work together in bringing developments to the Juja residents.
“As one who has been honored to serve the people of Kiambu county as former governor and previously as a long serving MP for Juja constituency, i believe that we must now put the divisions of the campaigns behind us and pursue a common goal of uplifting and serving the people,” urged Kabogo.
“Hon Njeri, we mounted a spirited fight but the people of Juja decided otherwise. I urge you to unite with Koimburi to pursue the interests of the people of Juja in honor of your late husband and former MP Francis Waititu,” he added.
