Hetinu, former NCD Election Manager in the 2017 National General Election (NGE), was committed to stand trial to answer to allegations of accepting a bribe valued at K184, 300, from a particular candidate during the 2017 NGE in NCD.

When giving evidence today, he revealed that the money found in his car by Police, was to pay for food rations and allowance for polling officials in the three electorates, who did not have bank accounts.

NCD Candidates alleged foul play by police

Just as media were leaving the Electoral Commissioner’s media conference on Monday several candidates and their supporters walked in to present their petition.

The petition was read out by NCD Regional Candidate, Andy Bawa, who alleged that the incident in which police chased out scrutineers and electoral officers from the Rita Flynn Sports Complex  was a ploy to illegally move in three ballot boxes.

He further alleges that NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Ben Turi is behind the alleged ploy in favor of certain candidates.
