90% voter turnout in Kajiado Central elections

16 March 2015, 19:06 Victor Tinto in Kajiado Central

Nairobi - Vote counting has begun in Kajiado Central after polling stations closed at 5 PM as constituents decided on the identity of their new member of parliament.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC stated that there had been a voter turnout of just over 90%, a very good show from the eager locals.

The good numbers were however overshadowed by bribery allegations from the two main parties seeking a win in the by elections.

The Coalition for Restoration of Democracy CORD candidate Elijah Memusi Kanchory had claimed that members of the Jubilee Alliance Party had taken part in voter bribery to help their candidate Patrick Tutui earn an unfair advantage.

Those accusations were however rebuffed by JAP.

There were also five persons that were arrested by police officers for bribery and taken to the Kajiado Police Station.

Vote counting took off just after 5 PM and results of the election are expected to be announced by 10 PM local time.

The elections are taking place to replace Joseph Nkaissery who quit after being appointed Interior Cabinet Secretary.
