CORD leaders complain over slow pace of Malindi vote counting

07 March 2016, 22:56 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - CORD leaders are raising alarm over the slow pace of counting of election results in the Malindi by election.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC says that the results are trickling in slowly thanks to slow return from the various polling stations.

That said, the Kericho by election, which has over 600 polling stations in consideration, has been moving quite well, with less than 70 polling stations remaining to be counted at the time of going to press.

In Malindi, which has 101 polling stations, only 53 had been counted, causing uproar from the opposition.

Led by Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale, the leaders believe that there is likely a sinister motive to the slow pace of the release of results.

" Why are the results in Kericho moving very quickly while those in Malindi are too slow? Is there something going on?," Khalwale posed.

In Malindi, ODM deputy party leader and Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho also complained of the slow pace of the results.

" They have been very slow. We are patient though and we will wait and see," he said on phone.

Lawyer Ahmednasir Abdulahi also made a similar allegation on Twitter.

" Why is Malindi a single constituency slower in counting than Kericho which is a whole county? 160,000 votes counted faster than 17000 votes?," he posed.

Malindi is voting in a new MP following the ascension of Dan Kazungu to the Cabinet.
