The Regional Minister said he was headed for the communities where the allegations have been made to curse persons peddling these falsehood.

“From here, I’m going to the community where the allegations have been made and openly curse persons who have made these allegations. Why am I mad? Then they should say I’m walking naked on the streets here. The area where these allegations are coming from is the hometown of one of the aspirants so I’m not shocked.”

On whether people are dolling out cash, the Regional Minister said he is not aware but for him he gave out transportation to delegates in order to facilitate their movement from their homes to the polling stations.
