“I have been surprised to find out that Ford-Kenya agents are having marked ballot papers in polling stations. That is against the law and we cannot allow it to happen. The residents have already burnt some in Bumula and Sirisia. I would also like to ask our people to come out in large numbers so that we can get our next Senator,” Wamunyinyi has said.
