Voters in Nakuru county started streaming into polling stations as early as 5am but unlike the August 8 poll, the exercise was marred by low turnout.

Local leaders led by Governor Lee Kinyanjui joined residents in the exercise characterised by uncertainties. He lauded voters for embracing peaceful co-existence saying no ugly incidents had been reported in the area.

“We are a peaceful people and nobody has been forced to go and vote or stopped from voting,” he said. At the same time, Nakuru Returning Officer Silas Rotich gave the election a clean bill of health saying everything went according to plan. The official said they had recorded an average of 50 per cent voter turn out across the voter-rich county with 11 constituencies.
