Bribery claims cloud poorly attended Nyaribari by-elections

30 December 2013, 15:10 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - There were several claims of massive voter bribery and further isolated ones of vote rigging as the Nyaribari Chache parliamentary by elections kicked off Monday.

Ford People's Richard Tongi, ODM's Chris Bichage and Labour party's James Kenani are the front runners in the poll and all of them early in the morning, expectantly hoping for the best.

" I believe that I will get the mandate to lead the people of Nyaribari Chache and they will come out in large numbers to support me, Tongi said after voting at the Ateta Amariba Primary School.

On the other hand, his ODM rival Bichage urged voters to turn up but lamented alleged incidents of bribery that had been noted.

" There are too many cases of bribery taking place and I hope the authorities will take a look into it. We want free and fair elections and I hope it will pass, he said.

Bichage blamed his rivals from TNA from instigating bribery but was confident his supporters would see him home.

A look at various polling stations showed a poor turnout in the mornign hours but it improved as the day went, with longish lines in some areas.

Polling stations will close at 5PM local time and results are expected by late in the night.
