Chaos Erupt at A Polling Station After Voters Demanded Removal of This Person From The Station

Thursday's Shella Ward by-election in Lamu County was marred by chaos as a result of voters at Shella Primary School calling for the ex-MCA Azhar Ali Mbarak to be removed from the polling place.

Police got involved and scattered the crowd.

About an hour after voting started, the mayhem started. Voting locations opened at six in the morning.


Not so long ago, seven persons were hurt in a recent instance of polling place violence at Kambare Polling Station when supporters of one candidate are said to have attacked supporters of the other camp.

According to the police, automobiles were stoned amid the commotion, which led to one of the cars driving off the road and flipping over.

The car had five occupants on board, who were all injured.

Two people were knocked down during the melee, bringing the total number of injured persons in the Kambare chaos to seven.

Police managed to restore calm and voting continued thereafter.
