Azimio La Umoja One Kenya secretary general Junet Mohamed has termed as fake news leaked audio going rounds when a man alleged to be him ,is having talks with one of the commissioners in the poll body in IEBC.
Mohamed termed the ‘fake’ audio as a desperate attempt by their rivals to mudsling and bring down the efforts of the Raila Odinga led coalition, eight days to the general elections.
“The Hon. Junet Mohamed urges the public to ignore the video, which appears to be one of the last desperate acts of a dying political campaign that has been based on years of lies, innuendoes, mudslinging, arrogance, chest-thumping, name calling, insults and now – waking up to the reality of a lost election – is on a sympathy seeking spree!” Mohamed said on twitter.
The Suna East MP went further to call upon investigative agencies to look into the matter and bring to book those found culpable of the mischief.
“The Hon. Junet Mohamed invites investigative agencies to move with speed and investigate the matter, unearth the perpetrators and bring them to the law. The Hon. Junet Mohamed is busy campaigning for Azimio Coalition and has no time to plot election rigging,” he stated.
In the leaked audio that has gone viral, a man is heard arranging a meeting with an alleged IEBC official in vernacular.
