Four arrested in Narok South in connection to election malpractice

Police in Narok South Constituency have Wednesday evening arrested four people in connection to election malpractice at Ole Nakane Polling Station.

Narok South Deputy County Commissioner Felix Kisalu said the four include the presiding officer, deputy presiding officer and two police officers who were manning the station.

According to Kisalu, the four were arrested after members of the public raised an alarm that despite having completed vote counting in the wee hours of the morning, the ballot boxes had not been transported to the main constituency tallying centre by 6 pm.

“Why did it take long for the IEBC officials to transport the ballot boxes yet the tallying centre, Arid Zone Primary School, is only eight kilometres from the polling station,” he wondered.

The DCC however called on the residents to be calm as police carry out investigations saying the officials will be prosecuted.

“We want to thank the members of the public for informing us of the discrepancy. We want to assure you that we will carry out our investigations and ensure justice prevails,” said Kisalu.

Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina who visited the polling station also thanked the residents for reporting the suspicious incident instead of taking the matter into their hands.

The tallying exercise is ongoing in all six constituencies in the county.
