A tallying exercise at Mount Kenya region in Embu county has on 12th August Friday evening been grounded to a halt. This was after a crowd of people stormed the venue chanting "Haki yetu! Haki Yetu!" translating to "Our Rights! Our rights!". The agitated crowd matched towards the dias of the Kangaru High school tallying centre which is hosting Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, (IEBC) officials.
However, a close consultation says that the crowd was demanding the declaration of results, which according to them have been delayed ruining their patience. Security officers have however responded swiftly to the situation and blocked the group from accessing the IEBC officials, an action which would otherwise lead to a huge mess.
More police officers have been deployed to respond to the matter, and the situation has been contained.
