Dr. Evans Kidero has said that the election process in Homa Bay was full of illegalities and anomalies, and has refused to accept the gubernatorial results.
The former Nairobi Governor, an Independent candidate who was competing against Gladys Wanga of ODM for the governor seat, said forms 37A were altered in many polling stations to deny him his deserved victory.
Form 37A contains the gubernatorial results of an election. Kidero now wants to petition in court to challenge the governor results.
“Forms 37A were altered with in many polling stations thereby causing a lot of anomalies in the results. We will therefore follow what the law states to dispute the gubernatorial results,” he said.
Kidero was speaking at his home in Asumbi village within Rangwe constituency where he met journalists on Friday.
He said that there was no room for negotiation and neither will he listen to anybody except the people of Homa Bay whom he represents their interests.
He asked his supporters to maintain peace and be calm, assuring them that the issue will be addressed.
“I have always been a peaceful person and I want to maintain peace and that is the reason I am here. To my people, keep calm because this issue will be addressed,” he said.
The gubernatorial results were announced on Friday by the County Returning Officer Fredrick Apopa where Gladys Wanga of ODM party came first with 244, 559 votes while Kidero followed with 154, 182 votes.
Charles Rabudi of UDA came third with 1244 votes.
