Public asked to stop spreading false information

Bomet County Commissioner Beverly Opwora has acknowledged the smooth process of voting exercise after visiting several polling centres within the region.

Addressing the media in the Boit Constituency tallying centre for Konoini constituency, Ms Opwora noted that the security team in the county had not encountered any security breach or concern.

She urged residents who have been propagating unconfirmed information to desist from that act.

“Voting exercise in the county has been smooth and I can confirm my security team has not received any case to raise the alarm. Polling stations were closed at five according to Independent Election and Boundary Commission (IEBC),” said Ms Opwora.

“We are urging residents to desist from being propagandists and spreading unconfirmed information which in this case is rumours about the election, we have the media which has the role of informing the public.”

Ms Opwora noted that the voter turnout in most of the polling stations within the county was of concern.

“We have noted that most polling stations had a low voter turnout which is worrying,” said Ms Opwora.
