After Deputy President William Ruto’s team tried to smuggle in a suspicious device into the tallying center, there was a fight at the Bomas of Kenya, where the IEBC had set up a national tallying center, leading to the expulsion of Uasin Gishu Woman Rep Gladys Boss Shollei.
The constituency returning officers’ presidential election ballots are being checked by the IEBC.
What started the altercation that led to the MP’s removal is still unknown.
Sources, however, indicated that the discrepancy resulted from the ongoing form verification process.
The insider revealed that Deputy President William Ruto’s staff made attempts to smuggle various gadgets into the tallying center, which led to confusion.
On the desk, a suspicious bag containing the devices was discovered.
Azimio objected and alerted the IEBC representatives to the device’s presence.
Normal operations have since resumed at the facility, and the verification of the presidential election results is still proceeding.
