Azimio la Umoja Senatorial candidate in Bungoma County Wafula Wamunyinyi has come out decrying rigging attempts.

Addressing the media after voting,Wafula Wamunyinyi pointed fingers at Ford Kenya party for moving around with marked ballot papers in favor of Wafula Wakoli who's Wetangula's preferred candidate.

“Nimesikitika kusikia kwamba watu wa Ford Kenya wanatembea na marked ballots. A lorry was spotted by voters and alerted me. They have since been chased away and i call upon IEBC to investigate on this matter,” Wafula Wamunyinyi decries rigging attempts,as calls on IEBC to take action

In Bungoma where Senatorial by-elections are currently taking place,polling stations opened at around 6 AM on Thursday morning and are expected to close at 6PM.

The vote was triggered when Ford Kenya's Moses Wetangula, who had won the seat in the August 9 election, resigned in September after he was elected the Speaker of the National Assembly.
