Police in Kitengela today arrested two people at St. Monica Catholic Church polling station during Jubilee Party nomination for Kajiado East parliamentary seat race.

Area police said the two were arrested after some voters alerted the police that there were characters dishing out money to stop people from voting.

The police confiscated ink the culprits were using to dip the fingers of the voters before they were issued with cash.

It was not immediately clear what the police would charge them with given the fact the exercise was a party affair.

The parties’ tribunal sitting in Nairobi on Monday ruled that the exercise be repeated at two polling stations in St. Monica Catholic Church and GK Prison in Kitengela.

Kajiado Women Representative Mary Seneta had appealed against an earlier ruling that awarded Peris Tobiko the party ticket as flag bearer in the August general elections.

Tobiko beat Seneta by a margin of over 3, 000 votes last month and subsequently given a ticket as party flag bearer.

At the St. Monica hundreds of voters milled around after voting after word went round that some agents of the two candidates would be bringing them “lunch”.

Security was high throughout the day as police presence was felt all over the place under the command of the area OCPD, Stephen Weda.

Weda said there were no major incidences reported during the day but insisted the officers will remain vigilant until the end of the exercise.

“Ours is to maintain peace and order. The party is running its affairs and we will come in whenever there will be trouble,” said Weda.
