Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has told Musalia Mudavadi to immediately apologise over utterances meant to tarnish his reputation.

This comes after Mudavadi, on Monday during a press briefing, claimed that State was planning to switch off Elections Management System (KIEMS) on Tuesday during elections, which never happened.

The NASA co-principals had alleged that the plan was leaked by Boinnet to his relative.

"We are fully informed the state has planned to get all kits switched off starting noon. The plot will start in one region, spread across the country and see IEBC resort to manual processes. This information was leaked by the IG himself to his relative," Mudavadi stated.

However Boinnet, through spokesman George Kinoti, has denied the allegations and warned Mudavadi to either apologise or he will be compelled to take legal action.

"Mudavadi should unconditionally retract his false and defamatory statements and issue a public apology and declaration that the allegation referred to are false and defamatory.

"This is necessary to undo the damage these malicious statements have caused, failure of which Boinnet will have the right to seek legal redress," Kinoti stated.

During the voting exercise across the country, some hitches were reported but KIEMS was not switched off as claimed by Mudavadi.

Some polling stations were also not open on time due to adverse weather conditions like in Turkana.

IEBC officials also trying to bribe voters were arrested and some even fired by the chairman after the news was circulated.
