Senator Anyang’ Nyong’o has accused Deputy President’s wife, Rachel Ruto of voter bribery in the county of Kisumu.
Speaking at an Anglican Church in Kisumu, Nyong’o said that Mrs Ruto had given a few people large sums of money to buy Identity Cards from voters in the area. He said the ploy is supposed to influence the outcome of the August election in the area.
”On 6 July, Rachel Ruto met with Governor Jack Ranguma and Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju in a hotel in Kisumu where she gave 100 Million to facilitate the buying of ID cards,” the Senator said.

In his address, he alleged that there was a second meeting this time with IEBC officials from Nairobi. They met at a hotel in the lake side city to discuss ways of influencing the presiding officers and clerks in favour of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Ranguma.
”We have information that ICT experts from Nairobi were in Kisumu meeting with ICT officials on how to jam the biometric voter identification kits at various polling stations,” he continued.
Mrs Ruto has been traversing the country praying for the upcoming elections.
