•Mudavadi told Kinoti it was an offence to interfere with the electoral process in whatever form or to harass its officials.
H•e said should they win the election they will open an inquiry to investigate all the state officers who may have played a role in obstructing justice and repressing democratic rights.
Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi has told the Director of criminal investigations George Kinoti to stop meddling with the affairs of IEBC.
Mudavadi reminded Kinoti that it was an offence to interfere with the electoral process in whatever form or to harass its officials saying such an act was likely to cost him.
He cited the former US FBI boss James Comey who he said was held accountable for his role in the 2016 US election.
“Mr Kinoti, please note that your continued harassment of election officials is an electoral offence and you shall soon be held to account,” he said.
Warning him of severe actions after August 9 should they win the election, Mudavadi said they will not relent in their avowal to open an inquiry to investigate all the state officers who may have played a role in obstructing justice and repressing democratic rights.
Comey, he said, lost his position on allegations that arose from the investigations into claims of Russian involvement and interference with the US elections.
While IEBC said the arrested Venezuelan nationals were legally in the country to deliver some election materials, Kinoti insisted they were on a private mission and in possession of 'questionable' materials hence their arrest and detention.
Addressing a rally in Ikolomani in Kakamega on Tuesday, the Mudavadi said the country has been through a lot and it is time for the electoral body to be left to act on its mandates as an independent body to deliver a free, verifiable, and credible poll.
“What Kenyans want is a peaceful transition process as well as a smooth power handover,” he said.
He was accompanied by the Kakamega ANC gubernatorial candidate Cleophas Malala and senatorial candidate Bonny Khalwale among others.
With just 12 days to the poll, Mudavadi at the same time lobbied for the election of Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate William Ruto to succeed the retiring President Uhuru Kenyatta.
He said as compared to Ruto, his Azimio la Umoja rival Raila Odinga has no good plans for the country and the Luhya community.
“Our administration would ensure all the plans that we have in the manifesto and the promised jobs are delivered...we shall also correct the wrongs President Uhuru Kenyatta did during his tenure in office,” he said.
