Murang’a Woman Representative Sabina Chege while appearing on Citizen Tv’s Power Breakfast offered the Third Way Alliance presidential candidate Ekuru Aukot a piece of advise.
Aukot on Monday said that he would be going to court to seek clarification on the persons that should be in the ballot in the fresh elections.

Ms Chege advised him against it noting that the lawyer garnered less votes nationally than an MCA in Murang’a county.
One of my MCAs got more votes than you @EAukot. When you get 392k votes, talk to me. For now concentrate on your struggles!

Ekuru did not take this lightly as he replied saying: ”Tell Sabina Joy Or is it Sabina Chege that even the votes she got could be VIFARANGA VYA KOMPYUTA.”
The presidential hopeful took down the post and instead said:
Wait until the petitions are on. No one who came out as a "kifaranga ya Kompyuta" to now masquerade as elecyed will survive the purge https://t.co/TOpXhdHd5S

Sabina’s tweet elicited some reactions from her followers as some thought she would not have engaged the presidential candidate further while others joined in the ‘Let’s make fun of Aukot’ bandwagon.
This is such a shameful statement from you Sabina Chege . Raise above this pettiness. Did you have to rub it so hard that someone lost. MXSM

The lawyer was on the ballot in the presidential election that was declared ‘null and void’ by the Supreme Court.
