Yesterday, Orange Democratic Movement party also cried foul when their treasurer Timothy Bosire was intimidated by police. Bosire was at a popular hotel in Kisii Town known as Ufanisi before cops raised the place.
The heavy presence of police at the area has been criticised by many opponents saying that they are there to ensure Zebedia Opore wins. The race is between Zebedia Opore of Jubilee, Widow of Oroo of UDA and, Pavel Emeke of ODM.
Many await to see how this by-elections will end as it will prove who has the say in Kisii politics. Every party wants a piece of this seat and it remains to be seen which way it will go. Voter turnout has been described as dismal.
