The former MP has since claimed that the police played a role in his defeat to David Ochieng of the Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) party.

He says a new that the DPP Noordin Haji in his approval of a forgery case against him dealt him a huge blow.

He questioned DPP Haji's intentions by approving the same on the election day, adding that the agencies have been against him from the onset when he presented his nomination papers in February.

"From the onset, all state agencies ganged up against my candidature," he told the Daily Nation on Thursday.

“Leave alone the declaration by the DPP on election day. When I presented my nomination papers to the IEBC in February, the DPP handed the file to the EACC, telling them to [file] more evidence against me," added Karan.

The forged document was an alleged medical report from a Mombasa hospital indicating that he used it during the hearing of the successful petition that was filed against his 2017 win by Ochieng.

Karan, an ally of ODM chief, Raila Odinga also defended the former Prime Minister whose absence from the campaigns has been attributed to the defeat.

He said that Raila was in the constituency thrice and endorsed him, only for the "united forces" to come in between him and the throne.

“Jakom (Raila) was in Ugenya three times and he campaigned for me. We were far much ahead. Only the security involvement messed us up," he added.

Raila has since dismissed the defeat as nothing serious, terming it a drop in the ocean.
