He pressed further by saying there were rumours going around as regards the election, that the electoral committee were being bribed to work against him, which he regarded rumours as inevitable in politics. He said during his investigation, he discovered that the rumour was false and he also said that the electoral committee wasn't biased and they were neutral as they ought to be.

The president, in his response on the issue of what he aim to achieve during his tenure, he says "I just want to build on what he (Barrister T) left on ground, I am not starting afresh, he has laid a foundation, we need continuity."
