KOT pounces on Senator Susan Kihika over tweet on Orengo over IEBC-Nasa deadlock

The senator pricked Nasa supporters

Making reference to the Tuesday press conference by Mr Orengo, Susan Kihika, a member of the Uhuru Kenyatta led Jubilee party told Orengo that the only body mandated to hold elections as ordered by the Supreme Court is IEBC.

The Senate Majority Whip went on to tag the Senior Counsel who represented Raila Odinga in the petition telling him she could send him the ruling on direct message if he didn’t have it.

The statement did not go down well with Kenyans on Twitter as they asked the Nakuru senator why she would even think of calling out a lawyer who won a presidential election petition.

“As opposed to what? Am assuming you have had a chance to glance at the ruling by Maraga's Supreme Court? Orengo, in case you haven't I can DM it?” she asked Mr Orengo on Twitter.

She added: “Glad it's all systems go! Kenyans are ready for 26/10 & IEBC is ready too. Let's get these elections behind us & we can move on already.”

Another tweet read:

Mr Orengo however, probably ignored and tweeted a contradicting message out the botched IEBC meeting at the Bomas of Kenya.

“Nothing has been agreed upon. We have not shut the path of dialogue. Uchaguzi bora. Si bora uchaguzi,” he tweeted.

Some Kenyans had these to say to the newly first-time elected senator.
