Provisional results indicate that ODM's Imran Okoth has won the seat and even his main rival MacDonald Mariga has already conceded defeat.

It is just a matter of time before IEBC declares the formal results.

However, during the election day, various challenges were witnessed. Some of the challenges include; voter bribery claims, low turn out of voters, faulty gadgets at some polling stations and missing names in voters' register among others. 

On Thursday, a man believed to be an official at Lang’ata CDF office was rescued from an angry mob by the police who then arrested him over voter bribery. 

Confirming the incidence, Nairobi Area police boss Philip Ndolo said that the suspect is being held at Kilimani Police Station.

“He was arrested around 7 am alongside another woman,” said Mr Ndolo as quoted by Daily Nation. 

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) chairman John Mbadi complained of missing voters' names on the register, faulty gadgets and also voter bribery. 

“I came here because there were urgent issues raised by our supporters that there was a fracas here in the morning largely caused by persons who were bribing voters. One of the guys issuing bribes was reported to be an aide of Lang’ata MP Nixon Korir,” said Mbadi. 

The MP also noted that voters' turn out at various stations was very low. He pointed out that this could be because of the election being held on a working day.
