The by-elections of Vice President William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party are currently underway in 36 of the 47 counties.
However, the exercise on Thursday, April 14 started badly in Bomet County with attendants claiming misconduct.
Speaking to reporters, lawmaker Wilson Sossion, who is seeking a UDA ticket for his stabbing at the senate headquarters in Bomet, said police at midnight seized ballot papers and ballot boxes that were being transported to an unknown location.
Sossion said the above-mentioned votes were marked to favor a particular candidate.
“The votes were marked to favor a particular candidate and there is a structure with the team in this arrangement,” Sossion said.
Given the way the papers were marked, the sharpshooter said there was already a certain structure being developed.
Therefore, Sossion called for the exercise to be suspended for a few hours or days to ensure that the process is credible.
On the other hand, County MP Joyce Korir almost wrestled with Senate candidate Hillary Sigei over the exercise.
