Jubilee Spent Over Sh300 Million Eurobond Money To Bribe 9,000 Votes In Malindi By Election

Over sh 300 million was spent to bribe voters in a bid to capture the Malindi by-election seat, Mvita MP Abdulswamad Shariff.

The Mvita MP said that the cash was from the Eurobond swindled loot.

He was quoted by the Star as saying:

"part of the unaccounted cash from the Eurobond, NYS and the Youth Enterprise Development Fund".

"They used Sh300 million to buy 9,000 votes"

Jubilee MP Peter Shehe denied that money was used to buy votes.

While addressing a rally in Mombasa, the MP, who is also a member of the Public Investments Committee, said he will initiate investigation to unearth what really happened.

He told the Star:

"I am a member of the Public Investments Committee that investigates lost funds and I will use my position to get answers from implicated officials allied to the government,"

"I will punish you. I will make sure you have paid the money to the last coin."

Those involved in dishing out bribes included Mwea MP Peter Gitau and Ferdinand Waititu but later released.
