Vote tallying enters second day in Migori

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) clerks continued to throng Constituency tallying Centres in Migori County Wednesday morning after completing with counting at their respective polling stations across the entire region.

Counting at the 1,070 polling stations across the eight constituencies in the County commenced Tuesday at 6pm, with many carrying on with the exercise up to daybreak this morning.

A sport check at St. Pius Secondary School, where vote tallying for Uriri Constituency had also started by 9pm last night found out a long queue of election officials preparing to hand over their results as more continued to arrive at the centre as late as 7am this morning.

Results declared at the Uriri Polytechnic election centre for County gubernatorial seat placed former area senator Ochilo Mbogo Ayacko (ODM) ahead with 329 votes as one time Suna East MP John Dache Pesa (DAP) following closely with 153 votes.

Former Minister Dalmas Otieno (Jubilee), Rebeca Ghati (UDA) and Byron Oginga garnered 18, 3 and 1 votes respectively in the same polling station.

Tallying for constituency results in the area are expected to be completed by mid-day or late afternoon today even as a good number of polling centres in far-flung areas and in bad terrains were yet to file their results.

Constituency vote compilation was also set to start at the County level with a command centre being set up at the Migori Teachers Training College within Migori town.

County election manager Mr. Ben Moseti said they were ready to start receiving results from all the eight constituencies to declare winners of the County gubernatorial, Senate and Woman Representative Seats.
