He said: “In an election, somebody must win. Not everybody will win. So far, the complaints are not many. We achieved 90 per cent success. We responded quickly wherever there are issues.

“Substantially, there are areas we have   up-held their election. One thing we are doing right now is to provide a platform for everybody who participated in the election, those who failed and those who won the election so that we use the opportunity to let them know that it is not the end and we have a lot of things to do in the party.

“On the morning of the election, before we started distributing materials, we got a security report that we should be careful so that we will not have issues.

“So, in Oguta, we had this issue of violence. When we sent out our personnel, some people double- crossed them on the road and insisted that they must return back to the headquarters.”
