Mombasa Recieves Kilifi Ballot Papers

On Monday, Mombasa County was thrown into disarray when ballot papers for gubernatorial candidates slated for Mvita Constituency polling stations went missing. 

Instead, ballot papers for Kilifi gubernatorial candidates were distributed to the constituency. 

Masha Sudi, the Returning Officer for the Mvita Constituency, confirmed the issue and stated that they were working to fix it in a timely manner.

“We have received ballot papers for Kilifi. However, that’s a challenge that’s within our reach and we will solve it soon,” Sudi said.

He was speaking at Allidina Visram High School, the distribution centre for Mvita Constituency’s election materials. He was overseeing the opening and distribution of ballot papers to various polling centres within Mvita. 

Concerning the confusion caused by the missing ballot papers, Sudi said he had channelled communication to the relevant authorities and action had started to address the problem. 

“I’m appealing to Mombasa residents to remain calm and rest assured that tomorrow morning they will vote for their preferred governor candidate,” he said.

Further, he asked people to stop speculations over where their gubernatorial candidate ballot papers were, “because even us, cannot tell where, but the issue will be solved in time”.
