Man Acting As A Raila Agent Is Detained In Embu With IEBC Results Forms

However, the presidential contender Azimio la Umoja's representative, who had been present the entire time, claimed not to know the individual.

The "imposter" was compelled to explain where he obtained the paperwork to the people gathered in the hall, claiming that he obtained them from the Returning Officer Pamela Karimi.

Later, the police officers manning the center took the man into custody.

Lenny Kivuti walked out of the tallying center in anger after the arrest agents of the Embu governor candidate even before signing the paperwork.

The forms will be filed with or without the agents, Deputy Returning Officer George Miriti informed the agents.

However, representatives of the governor, Cecily Mbarire, signed the documents and went to Kangaru to conduct the final tally.

The race for governor of Embu is being closely contested by UDA's Mbarire and Development Empowerment Party (Mbus) Kivuti.

Emilio Kathuri of the Jubilee party and Njagi Kumantha of the DP are the other two candidates for the position.

Recent polls show tendencies in favor of Kivuti and Mbariri.

The gazetted voter register shows that there are 334,302 registered voters in Embu.

Runyenjes is second with 95,326, followed by Manyatta with 106,588 voters, Mbeere South with 77,264, and Mbeere North with 55,124.
