ODM candidate wins Nakuru west MP seat

06 March 2013, 14:29 Steve Wambugu

ODM candidate Samuel Arama has been declared the winner for the Nakuru town west parliamentary seat after he garnered a total of 19 959 votes.

Arama was declared the winner by the constituency returning officer Perris Saina after a day long wait originating from a disagreement over 899 votes cast at Mwariki primary school.

Charles Maisiba who garnered 17 837 had earlier raised a complain that 899 votes cast in his favour had been intentionally omitted from the final tally giving his opponent un due advantage.

The situation almost got out of hand after supporters for both candidates engaged in a heated argument prompting GSU officers to intervene and as a result two people were thrown out of the tallying centre.

URP’s Mohammed Suraw managed a total of 10 540 votes with all the other candidates scoring less than 2 500 votes.

In his speech, Arama said that he was impressed by the manner in which IEBC conducted polls and at the same time challenged those who had complaints to follow the laid down procedures so that the same can be addressed.
