Saturday April 13, 2019-Former Ugenya Parliamentary aspirant on the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party ticket, Chris Karan, now says that State agencies have ganged up against him.
In a statement, Karan claimed that the police played a role in his defeat to David Ochieng of the Movement for Democracy and Growth (MDG) party.
Besides, he questioned DPP Haji's intentions of approving the forgery charges against him on the election day, noting that President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Government 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 said.
“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.
At the same time, Karan defended Raila Odinga 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.
He appealed to Raila to help against State political machinations.
