The Jubilee primaries in Kilifi county shows Ken Nyale is leading in all polling stations across the county. According to our insiders Kaloleni, Malindi and Magarini sub-counties, Ken Nyale was leading with 23,633 votes followed by Christine with 7890 and Prof Eric Chenje Mwachiro with 4,512 votes. The early lead shows that Ken is becoming more popular in Kilifi county compared to the Prof. Eric Chenje Mwachiro who once vie for MP seat in Kilifi.

Ken Nyale 1,027(Rabai),2,773(Kilifi North),4,703(Malindi), 3,876 (Kaloleni), 1,786(Magarini), 6,790(Kilifi South) and 2,678(Ganze) while Prof Eric Chenje Mwachiro 400(Rabai), 800(Kilifi North), 1000 (Malindi), 60 (Kaloleni), 156(Magarini), 400(Kilifi South) and 80(Ganze). These are not the final tallies as some polling stations are still in debate and others claimed to have malpractice. The final tallies will be done at 3 PM as the Jubilee party Kilifi secretariat said.

The gubernatorial race party ticket is held by Gideon Maitha Mung'aro who had no competition and will be given the party ticket. The MPs who are contesting for the party tickets and are likely to win because of the early lead include; Philip Charo(Malindi), Mustapha IDD(Kilifi South).

A fracas today happened in the D.O office at Majengo, Mtwapa following claims that Mustapha Idd had plans to rig the polls. According to Sheddy Lewa, the Mustapha team gave the voters handouts from Morning to evening and the votes were not tallied in their respective centres claiming that the Movement of votes created inconveniences and irregularities.

"The votes at FTC were not counted at the polling station, same with Mtwapa primary and many more polling stations here in Mtwapa. At Mtepeni a lot of people were denied chances of voting same thing as of Mtomondoni. We demand to know what was the main motive of Mustapha Idd because it allegedly gives handouts to the returning officer at KARI" Said Lewa.

The majority of the Kilifi south MPs slammed the DOs offices where some ballot boxes were found with extra votes in a saloon car. The Majengo residents surrounded the car yesterday demanded to know what was the destination of the Balot boxes.
