Vote so there is no run off

A Mombasa gubernatorial aspirant has called for the voters to make sure there is no rerun in getting the fourth president of Kenya in the coming polls.
Speaking in Likoni where he engaged in a door to door vote hunt, Suleiman Shahbaal said that he regards a no run off polls as it would save the six billion budgets allocated for the process.
Shahbaal said that the budget needed was extensive and that the amount could be used to further development if it is not spent in the runoff process.
Shahbaal who was at first a gubernatorial aspirant in the United Democratic Forum party (UDF), is today in the WIPER Democratic Party and he is said to be ODM aspirant Ali Hassan Joho's biggest competition.
Shabaal called upon the voters in Mombasa County to specifically embrace peace before, during and after the polls that are to be held on Monday adding that there was no need for people to vacate the County and head home, but asked them to stay and preach peace.
He further called on the registered voters who have lost their identification cards to make efforts of having police abstracts as he will follow up to enable them vote with regard that the biometric system will recognize them.
He said this with reference to the fact that Likoni records a high number of ID and voters card loss.
