Kitui by elections marred by low voter turn out

0 692

The Kitui West by elections were today marred with low voter turn out and claims of rigging.

Five candidates among them Edith Nyenze, widow of the late MP Francis Nyenze who is running on a Wiper ticket are battling for the seat following the death of Nyenze in December last year.

After casting his vote at Matinyani AIC, Mrs Nyenze’s  closest rival, Mutiso Leli, claimed that majority of his agents had been denied access to polling stations across the constituency on account of not having appointment letters from the party.

Nyenze however downplayed the claims saying that she has not heard cases of rigging further hailing the IEBC’s organization in carrying out the election.

Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu attributed the low voter turn out to lack of excitement among the voters as it has always been during the General Elections.
