Following today's by elections in Bonchari constituency, details have emerged that the ODM party officials including Edwin Sifuna and the Kisii county member of parliament Janet Ongera have been trailed by the police offices while supervising the process of the ongoing by elections.
Using their social media, the ODM party has pointed fingers to the police officers for intimidating them. They added that the police officers are favouring the jubilee political leaders as they claimed that the police officers allow them together with their goons to hoover around the polling stations freely.
"Edwin Sifuna and Kisii Membet of parliament Janet Ongera have been engaged in Cats and mouse games with the police who are constantly trailing them as they visited various polling stations to check on the progress. Meanwhile, Jubilee politicians and their goons are hoovering around freely", they quoted.
The ODM party officials alongside other parties' contesters officials have been denied the access of all the polling station. The Kisii police commander yesterday said that they will provide maximum security in the ongoing by elections.
This has however been criticized as the ODM party officials have come out strongly to condemn to way the police officers are carrying out their mandate. The ODM party officials have been trilled by the police officers as they are accused of interrupting the ongoing by election process.
