Voting Commences In Closely Contested Kenyan Election

Voting is underway across Kenya with a large voter turnout already in various polling stations.

At least 19,611,423 million registered voters are set to cast their ballot, in the closely contested general elections.

Long queues are building up in various parts of the country, with a similar situation felt in the capital Nairobi.

President Uhuru Kenyatta will cast his vote at Mutomo Primary in Gatundu South, with NASA Presidential candidate Raila Odinga set to vote at Olympic Primary School in Kibra at 10:30 am (EAT).

Deputy President William Ruto will vote at Kosachei Primary school in Sugoi with NASA running mate Kalonzo Musyoka set to vote at Tseikuru Primary School.

However, Thirdway Alliance Presidential candidate, Dr Ekuru Aukot, has yet to cast his ballot after he got stranded at River Nginyang bridge.

The bridge in Turkana County is flooded making the road impassable, leaving the presidential aspirant stranded for hours.

Aukot said the bridge in Nginyang was swept by floods in 1992 adding that he has yet to cross over to the other side so he can cast his vote at Kapedo as earlier scheduled.

Senator Moses Wetangula set to do so at Namakhele Primary School in Bungoma.

Musalia Mudavadi is in the meantime expected to vote at Mululu Primary School.
