Is Uhuru's Candidate Trailing in Juja By-election? Lawyer Wahome' 'Cooked Results' Causes a Stir

The counting of votes is currently underway in different polling stations in Juja.

Lawyer Wahome Thuku has caused a stir online after sharing "cooked" Juja constituency results on social media.

In his statement, the lawyer gave his two cents by claiming that it's undoubtedly evident that Moses Kuria's candidate George Koimburi will clinch the seat.

"I think Koimburi will win, but the figures I have just posted about MK and Uhuru, I just cooked them as am seated somewhere here in Kitengela. 250 happy comments in 10 minutes na ata I don't even know who is leading," he posted.

According to various sources, George Koimburi Ndung'u is said to be taking an early lead as the results continue to trickle in. The ruling Jubilee party Susan Njeri, widow to the late MP Waitutu is said to be trailing in the Juja by-election.

If Moses Kuria's candidate will be declared the winner, then this will be a powerful message to the Head of State.

Meanwhile, the voting exercise was marred with bribery, harassment and low voter turnout.

Here are their mixed reactions;
