According to the Senator , the October 26 repeat presidential election was not free and fair, adding that IEBC erred in declaring Uhuru the winner.
The senator claims that IEBC did not conduct the repeat poll in conformity with the law and the constitution as ordered by the Supreme Court when it nullified the August 8 presidential poll.
“The IEBC did not adhere to the instructions issued by the Supreme Court and as such the October 26 repeat poll will suffer the same fate if it lands at the apex court,” he told journalists at Makueni Town on Monday.
The Wiper Party senator said that it was wrong for the IEBC to go on with the repeat poll when it had not addressed key issues raised by stakeholders.

The senator said that the best option for IEBC was to go back to the Supreme and seek for more directions before conducting a shambolic repeat election.
Mutula Junior said that the country is now divided as a result of the IEBC alleged shambolic repeat presidential election.
The senator at the same time said there is need for key electoral reforms that will ensure credibility and transparency in the electoral system.
