Today has been a busy day for the residents of Kabuchai and Matungu as the two constituencies had by- elections and the residents woke up very early to exercise their democratic rights. There have been alot of dramatic scenes in the two areas with many people being arrested. The police officers have flooded in the regions to make sure that the voting process goes on smoothly without any form of interruptions.
There is a video that has surfaced online and this has wowed many Kenyans online.From the video, there is a 'rastaman' who was in a voting queue at Kabuchai constituency and it was noted that he was not having a facemask on. The journalists went ahead to interrogate him asking him why he has not put on a facemask. The man answered with calmness saying the following in Swahili "Manze sio mask hupiga kura ni mimi mwenyewe Patrick napiga kura" , which can be translated to mean that the mask does not usually vote but he is the one who will cast his vote.
The man was reminded what the IEBC had earlier said that no one will be allowed to vote without a facemask. The man demonstrated that he is a peaceful Kenyan when he just decided to leave the queue without creating any chaos. See some reactions from Kenyans below:
