The August General Elections have been nothing short of electrifying for the past few hours where Kenyans have lined up to vote.
The process has not been without incident as some members of Parliament who are allied to the United Democratic Alliance party have been taken into custody.
The Nakuru East Member of Parliament David Gikaria, who is allied to UDA has been arrested for allegedly fighting an opponent's supporter at a polling station during the ongoing General Election.
The Member of Parliament was taken into police custody by authorities at the Naka Primary School polling station, as hundreds of members of the public were streaming in to cast their votes.
Hon. Gikaria is said to have messed the first ballot paper and was denied a chance to get a spare by the IEBC Officials even as he is said to have protested for an exemption.
