Rigathi Gachagua Failed to be Identified by KIEMIS Kit

The General Elections in August are now taking place, and millions of Kenyans are braving the early morning chilly to cast their votes for the candidates and parties of their choice throughout the nation.

The several candidates have also cast their ballots, however the information that we have at this time indicate that the former prime minister, Raila Odinga, has not yet cast his ballot at his station in Kibra.

The KIEMS Kits, which are electronic, are being used to identify the Kenyans at the numerous voting sites located all throughout the nation. A manual register is also accessible for those Kenyans who cannot be completely recognized by the KIEMS Kits.

Deputy President William Ruto, who is also the head of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, cast his ballot this morning in his home constituency, where he arrived quite early to complete the process.

According to the reports that we have received, the Agano Party Presidential Aspirant voted this morning at Upper Hill School in Nairobi County. This information comes from the sources that we have received.

Very early this morning, Martha Karua, who is the running mate for the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance, cast her ballot in her native county of Kirinyaga.

According to the news that we have received this morning from Nation Media, Gachagua has also cast his ballot in the Mathira Constituency together with his wife earlier on. This occurred earlier in the day.

Because the KIEMS Kit was unable to correctly identify the Kenya Kwanza Alliance running mate, the officials from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission were had to consult the manual record in order to get his information.

However, he has already cast his ballot, and everything seems to be operating normally at the voting booth in the Mathira Constituency this morning.

The United Democratic Alliance had filed a lawsuit against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission in order to force the commission to stop using manual voter registrations at polling locations.
