Nairobi woman representative Rachel Shebesh has sensationally claimed that there is a plot to kill her if she wins the ongoing Jubilee Party nominations in Nairobi.
Shebesh claimed that one of her opponents who had met at a hideout and hatched a plot to kill her has declared that if she wins she will do so in a coffin.
“Yesterday my opponents declared that should I win the nominations, I will be in a coffin. I don’t know where all this hatred comes from. Why can’t they just ask for votes from the voters? I keep telling them to seek votes without involving Shebesh. Shebesh has her own votes which they can’t get,” she said at a press briefing shortly after voting.
“I know where they met and I’m daring them to make good that declaration that I will only win the nominations in a coffin. I will win through God’s grace,” she said.
The woman rep however said that she is not going to be intimidated as she has enough security including her husband who had accompanied her to the polling station.
She continued to say that her opponents campaigns have not been substantive and have been spending their time discrediting her.
She said that they have not stated what they will do for the people of Nairobi other than making dubious claims about her.
Shebesh also claimed that some opponents were bringing people who are not eligible to vote in Jubilee primaries to the polling stations.
She said she had witnessed ODM supporters being fellied to the polling sites and that security officers were on high alert to ensure only party members get to vote.
“We won’t allow ODM to elect a candidate for us (Jubilee) because that candidate won’t transfer his votes to President Uhuru Kenyatta,” she said.
