Murang’a leaders led by Governor Mwangi wa Iria and Senator Irungu Kang’ata today facilitated free transport to Nairobi residents traveling to any destination in Muranga County ahead of the repeat presidential poll tomorrow.
The Governor who was at Koinange Bus Station urged Kenyans to come out and vote in large numbers saying the election will proceed on as planned.
The operation dubbed ‘Murang’a twende tukavote’ saw a mad rush by passengers take advantage of the offer as they were only supposed to present their National Identity Card to travel home.
The free transportation service was rolled out as early as 6am and will be ongoing until 2pm so as to enable voters participate in the repeat polls.
The program initiated by Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria, Senator Irungu Kang’ata and Woman Representative Sabina Wanjiru is targeting more than 50, 000 Voters who live in Nairobi.
Wa Iria said they intend to ensure a 100 per cent voter turnout in Murang’a County during the Presidential election on Thursday.
Wa Iria has also set up a kitty to facilitate free transportation of voters to various polling centers in the County on polling day.
The passengers expressed their gratitude to the leaders saying they are ready to exercise their democratic right tomorrow.
