The county is one of the strongest National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga support bases. The Opposition chief had directed his supporters not to take part in the election, calling it a shambolic process. Raila, who has abandoned the repeat presidential election, was to face President Uhuru Kenyatta and six others.
The youths in Migori engaged police in running battles late into the night following the standoff. “We learned of an attempt to sneak voting materials and ballot papers in polling centres at night,” one of the youths said. They kept vigil in polling centres and have turned deaf ears to the IEBC.WHAT HAPPENED IN MOMBASA
