IEBC suspended the Kiambaa constituency vote tallying on Friday morning, July 16, after the Jubilee candidate and his supporters stormed into the tallying centre and caused a fracas.

Njama and his supporters alleged that IEBC under Wafula Chebukati were tilting elections in the favour of UDA’s  Njuguna Wanjiku.

152 polling stations out of 154 had been tallied with Wanjiku leading with 21,301 votes, 244 more than Kariri Njama’s 21,057 votes at the time. Police took over the tallying centre and locked contesting officials out of the premises.
