The process has kicked off smoothly as Kenyans in Uganda joined their colleagues back home to vote for their president.
At the Kenyan High Commission in Kololo, voters started turning up as early as 6 am and by 9am, many had finished casting their vote.
The voters expressed happiness that they were expressing their rights to vote for their president despite being away from Kenya.
“This is my second time to vote outside Kenya and I am happy that I can vote for my favourite candidate,” said one of the voters.
He, however, expressed concern with the outcome of polls.
“I pray the exercise back in Kenya moves on smoothly without any violence up to the end,” Esther Wanjugu said.
The Kenyan High Commissioner to Uganda, Geoffrey L. Okanga, expressed assurances that the polls would go on smoothly without any form of violence.
This year’s presidential polls in Kenya are between the incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta of the Jubilee coalition and opposition leader Raila Odinga(NASA).
