Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga has said that the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) demanded the release of the voters' register ahead of the voting exercise on Thursday because they had sensed something sinister.

In an interview with K24, Wanga said that the party had a right to demand the names of all those registered in the area to avoid any fishy business that was allegedly about to take place in Kibra aimed at blocking ODM's Imran Okoth from winning.

She also exuded confidence that Imran was going to carry the day after the exhaustive campaigns from the party.

"We wanted the full register with names because we had suspected monkey business on the register," the vocal Woman Rep said.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has confirmed that the voting exercise has already kicked off in Kibra. 

Through its official Twitter Handle, the electoral body revealed that polling stations were opened at 6 am and several voters have already cast their votes in support of their candidate.

"Goodmorning, Kibra voters are today voting to elect their Member to the National Assembly. Polling stations opened at 6 am and voting is ongoing," IEBC tweeted.

Kibra has over 118,000 registered voters.

24 candidates were cleared by IEBC to vie for the seat that fell vacant after the death of the then MP Ken Okoth.
