Police have arrested Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa, Belgut MP Nelson Koech and Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei during the ongoing Kabuchai parliamentary by-election.
Police say the tanga tanga lawmakers were intimidating the voters at the polling stations, thus interfering with their voting.
The two leaders are agents for the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidate Evans Kakai Masinde.
Police have also arrested the UDA Candidate for Kiamokama Ward by-election Nyandusi Nyakeramba over allegations of voter bribery.
Police also arrested businessman Don Bosco Gichana who was with Nyakeramba at Moremani in Kisii monitoring the voting process.
Nyakeramba had confronted police officers demanding to know why they had teargassed his convoy yet he claimed not to have committed any offence.
“Why are you arresting my supporters as they vote? This is unfair what is my mistake, take me to court if I have committed any crime,” Nyakeramba said.
In Matungu, police are also looking for former Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa after he engaged in an altercation with an IEBC official in the morning.
Echesa was caught on video slapping an IEBC official at Bulonga polling station.
This happened as he accused IEBC official Peter Okura of barring their agent to witness the voting.
“Sheria inasema kuwa poll agents must witness the voting!” he was heard shouting as he told off the IEBC agent.
In the not so audible video, the IEBC agent was heard defending himself saying that he was following instructions.
But before he could finish talking, Echesa slapped him.
“You were told by who? Umeambiwa by who? You cannot keep our agents outside. Why are you chasing them outside…. This is stupidity my friend…” Echesa says as he slaps the official.
Okura allegedly stopped one of United Democratic Alliance’s agents from entering the polling venue because he did not have a facemask.Do you have any story you would like to share? Email us at email@example.com and we will publish it. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
