ODM director of elections Junet Mohammed has said that Benard Imran Okoth's agenda in the upcoming Kibra by-election would not be tarnished by electoral fraud claims.
In a tweet, Junet asserted that the party's candidate did not have large sums of money to dish out to voters in order to buy support from them as it was being done by 'gamblers' and 'illicit traders'.
The Suna East MP further claimed that the party was working to ensure that the agenda of Bernard Okoth was not meddled with 'cheap politics' of 'voter bribery' being peddled by competitors.
He expressed confidence of a victory for the ODM candidate.
"Our candidate does not have the kind of money that is being pumped in Kibra by gamblers and illicit traders. So we are here to ensure his message is not drowned in the cheap politics of voter bribery that is now being introduced in Kibra. He will win," tweeted Junet.
On Wednesday, ODM held a fundraiser in order to finance the campaign of their candidate Benard Imran Okoth in the forthcoming Kibra by-election.It was attended by the top party leadership, the party's parliamentary group members, well-wishers and friends.
"ODM top party leadership, Parliamentary Group Members, friends of ODM and well-wishers have this evening held a fundraiser for our candidate Hon. @ImranOkoth. As a party, we are confident we will win Kibra decisively. Thank you all," noted Junet in an earlier tweet.
