He was accompanied by Kieni MP Kanini Kega and Muranga MP Sabina Chege.

Kega waded into an earlier incident where National Assembly Majority Leader Amos Kimunya was confronted by youths on claims that he was not a voter or an agent at the Constituency.

The MP said that UDA had sensed defeat and have resorted to causing chaos in Jubilee's strongholds.

"Nothing stops any person from being an agent. It is unfortunate what we saw where Majority Leader was being harassed," Kega said.

"They want to cause mayhem in our strongholds. They have sensed defeat...we know the will of the Kiambaa people will prevail."

Sabina appealed to residents to turn up in big numbers and vote for the Jubilee candidate.

"We thank God, we have prayed and we trust God this victory belongs to Kariri Njama," she said.
