In what casts an image of a dissatisfied and impatient lot, residents of Sirisia constituency in Bungoma County have this evening staged a dramatic scene characterized by huge bonfires lit in the middle of a highway protesting the snails-peed with which the tallying and declaration of parliamentary results is being handled.
In the incident happening right outside the entrance of Sirisia boys High school which is serving as the main constituency tallying centre, the protesters who are majorly made up of youth could not be immediately linked to a given parliamentary candidate, but as at election time, the Sirisia parliamentary seat had attracted several candidates including incumbent MP John Waluke who recently decamped to Azimio la Umoja coalition.
The same unrests though not extreme are being experienced in different parts of the country but IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati has since urged Kenyans to exercise patience and allow the presiding and returning officers to conduct a clean job before declaration of final results.
