Around 56 inmates cast their votes today

Around 56 inmates at the Narok GK prison are among the voters casting their votes today.

The station’s Presiding officer Ms. Sena Kuluo said the process has been moving on smoothly and by 10 am, half of them had already voted for their presidential hopeful

“The 56 are 54 men and two women. The process has been peaceful as they came early enough to vote for their favorite candidate,” he said.

The Prison in Charge Benson Lomeri called for peace saying the country was greater than any single individual calling on all the candidates to accept the election outcome.

John Chikamai, a prisoner,thanked the government for giving the prisoners a chance to vote saying he expects the next administration to improve on the living condition of the prisoners.

At the same time, the Narok gubernatorial aspirant on ODM ticket Moitalel Ole Kenta has cast his vote at Naisoya Primary school in Narok North constituency while his competitor Patrick Ntutu cast his vote at Kutete primary school in Narok West Sub County.

Ole Kenta called on the residents to maintain peace even after the elections reiterating that the county was greater than any single individual.

“We are confident we will win; however, we will accept the results as they come because our county and the Nation at large is greater than any single person,” he said.

He recalled how the country was thrown into a dark moment after the 2007 General Elections and asked Kenyans to be quick to accept the results as unveiled by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

“This time round, we want to be an example to the world. We have confidence that IEBC will deliver a credible election because we have not seen any major issues,” reiterated Ole Kenta.

The same sentiments were echoed by the UDA candidate Patrick Ntutu who said he had confidence that IEBC would deliver a credible election.

Ntutu called on his supporters to maintain peace after the elections saying he will accept the election outcome.
