Election Update: Fears As Violence Breaks Out

Whole country on the edge as ECK delays announcement of presidential election result

As the ECK dilly-dallies with presidential ballot results, sporadic violence has broken out in parts of the country.

In Nairobi, cars are being stoned and occupants dragged out in kicks and blows at the Kangemi bridge as well as the Globe Cinema roundabout / Kirinyaga Road. It is instructive to note that these areas were previously perceived to be PNU strongholds (Starehe and Westlands) but have now been won by ODM candidates. Motorist and pedestrians are advised to avoid these areas.

This blogger regrettably predicts that it is a matter of time before the violence spreads to other areas across the country – which may force the police commissioner to impose a country-wide curfew if ECK delays announcing the presidential result further.

At the time of posting this (10h00 local time) violence has reportedly broken out in Kisumu (Kondele and Main Bus Park) areas with youth harassing motorist, especially PSV operators from Nairobi who are known to dominate the public transport in Western Kenya circuit. This blogger is also receiving reports of violence against certain communities in Kericho, Muhoroni, Chemelil, Sotik and Narok areas.

More on this as the story develops and the country await the ECK verdict.
