ODM Takes Earlier Lead In Bonchari By Election

In Bonchari, there was relative calm across the constituency with heavy police presence dotting the roads leading to polling centers.

Nyanza Regional Police Commander Karanja Muiruri had earlier confirmed that they had made arrests but declined to disclose the number or the offences of suspects in custody.

In separate statements released on Tuesday afternoon, the parties protested the arrests accusing police of intimidation.

According to the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party, its Youth League President John Ketora and Director of Youth Affairs Benson Musungu are among four members arrested on “flimsy grounds”.

Kenyans have proven that teargas, bullets, intimidation don't win elections. Votes do. Deep state must go back to the drawing board. Meanwhile hustlers are breaking the glass the glass ceilings

ODM and Jubilee: We are working together to build a more peaceful Kenya through BBI! Also ODM to Jubilee: our candidate in Bonchari was harassed by police. Jubilee is using violence. We shall hold mother of all demonstrations.

Time has now come for President Uhuru Kenyatta to reflect his final lap and stop playing local politics if he can deliver BBI. Moses Kuria has taught him a lesson in Juja and Rurii. Matiang'i has let him down in Bonchari.
