Kandara MP, Alice Wahome has said that she will not respond to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) allegations.
Ms Wahome was caught on tape harassing the constituency Returning Officer Martin Malonza.
IEBC called for her arrest. Mr Malonza said that the legislator accused him of rushing to submit the presidential results without her approval.
The Kandara MP is also said to have blocked the official’s way and at some point pushed and shoved him around.
Speaking to Kenyans, Ms Wahome said: ”I will only respond when IEBC calls me. Why are they issuing statements yet they do not know what happened?”
The legislator further alleged that Malonza’s reaction was pre-planned.
”He was very rude and did not want to be asked any questions. What I did was not outside the law and it is prejudicial of IEBC to issue a statement that I have not seen by calling for my arrest. The returning officer was supposed to sit and explain in a calm manner, not causing drama,” she added.
Kenyans online have also called for the MP’s arrest.
