Several aspirants seeking United Democratic Alliance (UDA) tickets in Uasin Gishu County have cast their votes in the ongoing nomination exercise.

The exercise has been largely peaceful and smooth, despite delays that were witnessed in numerous polling stations.

Delays were occasioned by challenges in the distribution of the ballot boxes and papers from the Constituency Tallying Centers.

Most of the polling stations affected were the ones within Eldoret town, as the emphasis was on far-flung centers in the distribution of the materials.

In Turbo Sub County, voting was yet to start as late as 12.00 noon in MV Patel – one of the biggest polling stations in the county.

It was a similar case for Uasin Gishu Primary School with only police officers seen in the area.

Aside from the two stations, voting was going on smoothly in most of the polling stations.

Governor Jackson Mandago who is in the race to be the next Uasin Gishu Governor cast his vote at Limnyamoi Primary School in Kuinet/Kapsuswa ward, shortly before 1.00 pm.

Mandago said he was happy with the conduct of the nomination.

The process is going on well and we also ask that those in charge ensure it is free and fair,” he said.

UDA has done a better job than what Jubilee did in 2017,” he added.

Earlier, Soy Member of Parliament Caleb Kositany had cast his vote at Kabobo Primary School in Soy Sub County.

Kositany who is in the race to be the next Uasin Gishu Governor said the process was going on well and called on the party to consider extending the voting time in areas where voting started late.

Other gubernatorial candidates Prof. Julius Bitok and Jonathan Bii Chelilim have also cast their votes in their respective polling stations.
