Police have raided the home of Fred Egesa Achoka, the Busia municipality parliamentary aspirant.  

The Tuesday evening raid at Egesa’s home in Kisenyi B village in Western Division saw the arrest of three people for alleged theft.  

  Eriya Elepot, the Busia District Police Commander-DPC, says their aim was to search the home in connection to the raid on the Electoral Commission offices on Monday last week.  

The trio, whose identities have been withheld, are suspected to have broken into the EC offices and made off with a laptop and voter’s register.     

  

Egesa says the suspects are his aides who were helping him ascertain the number of voters in Busia municipality, where he intends to contest in the forthcoming polls. He says the raid was planned by his opponents.

  Egesa’s rival Kennedy Wanyama has condemned the break-in at the EC offices and appealed to residents be more vigilant with such politicians who want to hold positions cheaply.

Dr. Joan Aduru, the Busia District Electoral Commission Returning Officer denied losing any electoral material from the offices in a phone interview with our reporter.

Cue out:...let you know"//
