Narok County Commissioner Isaac Masinde has called on residents to remain calm as they wait for the final results from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
This follows utterances by the Maasai Council of Elders who alleged that there was massive voter bribery in the gubernatorial race that could compromise the outcome of the results.
Their utterances raised tension in the county and hundreds of young people were seen moving towards the Maasai Mara University County tallying centre, chanting slogans in support of gubernatorial candidate Moitalel Ole Kenta.
However, County Commissioner Masinde called on the youth to retreat to their homes and wait for the main announcement from the IEBC officials as all the six constituencies were yet to deliver their election materials.
“We have guarded all the votes and no one will be allowed to rig elections. We urge people to wait patiently for the results that will be announced shortly,” assured Masinde.
The County Commissioner also called on the Maasai Council of Elders led by their chairman Kelena Ole Nchoe not to spread unconfirmed information to the residents and instead challenged them to be ambassadors of peace.
Ole Kenta, an ODM candidate was competing with Patrick Ole Ntutu a UDA candidate.
Already, four out of six constituencies have handed in their results with only Kilgoris and Narok South constituencies remaining.
