The exercise was temporarily interrupted at the MV Patel Memorial Hall as TNA supporters wanted to pick popular candidates without zoning the region. Jane Wangui Murithi, a TNA aspirant for Huruma County Assembly Representative claimed her agents had been ejected from the polling station.
“The presiding officer and clerks are partisan. Election process should be democratic to enable voters pick a representative of their choice,” she said.
Protesting supporters shouted, “No TNA, no elections” claiming party agents were ejected by URP officials. Administration Police officers were on the alert to avert violence. The stalemate was resolved after election officials and aspirants held a meeting.
“There were hiccups at the beginning following a commotion over issues on joint nominations. The matter was later sorted out,” said Oliver Kipchumba, elections supervisor.
