Mathare voter turnout 30%, as polling stations close

11 August 2014, 20:40 William Korir

Nairobi - The voter turnout in the Mathare by-election was just over 30%, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC has said.

This follows a poor showing at most polling stations in the morning, which many believe was occasioned by the fact the election was held on a Monday, which is a working day.

According to IEBC Commissioner Thomas Letangule, who spoke to the media after the close of voting, the turnout was not too bad for a weekday.

" It is low, yes but we have to consider it was a Monday and many have to go to work. That was going to be a factor and sadly it has turned out that way, he said.

He called it a free and fair election, saying that there had been no complaints from the candidates despite there being isolated incidences of violence.

" They were small incidences that have now been dealt with. The candidates have all been happy, having spoke to all of them, he added.

The poll is expected to be split between ODM's Stephen Kariuki and TNA's George Wanjohi, who is the incumbent.
