Video: Scenes as Man Impersonating Azimio Presidential Election Agent is Busted in Embu

Police officers manning a tallying centre in Runyenjes, Embu county were forced to quickly restrain a man who was in the centre masquerading as an agent representing the Azimio la Umoja coalition.

According to videos taken during the incident, the unidentified man was right at the front tables where agents scrutinized forms before appending signatures.

It is during the process that other agents and tallying officers became suspicious and alerted police. The man has since been arrested pending questioning to ascertain his motives in the sensitive election exercise.

It should be noted that agents play a very critical role in determining the transparency and validity of the final elections results. They must countercheck the figures displayed before appending their signatures.

Throughout the election period, instances of mischief among agents, police officers and Presiding officers have been reported in some poling stations and tallying centres with some of the culprits already arraigned in court, like the case of Narok where a returning officer deliberately interchanged results of leading gubernatorial candidates.
