Drama ensued in a polling station in Nandi County on Thursday, April 14 after a section of voters caused a scene during the ongoing United Democratic Alliance (UDA) nominations.
A commotion was witnessed in the polling station after Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei tried to skip the queue.
However, voters who had arrived at the station at dawn blocked the Senator from skipping the long queue and voting ahead of them.
“We have been here since morning and we are tired, how can one come from nowhere and directly go to the polling booth while we are still standing here. He has not been coming here to seek our votes,” a voter argued.
The Senator was forced to stand at a particular point as he strategized the next move after the obvious backfired.
As earlier reported, protests broke out in Bomet County during the ongoing United Democratic Alliance (UDA) nominations over alleged rigging.
UDA aspirants seeking tickets to contest for various elective posts protested the exercise after police impounded marked ballot papers and ballot boxes.
“The ballot papers have been marked in favour of a particular candidate and there is a defined lineup and team within this arrangement,” Wilson Sossion said.
