The Kisumu County ODM Gubernatorial Nomination Primaries were held yesterday all day long. Despite hitches from late delivery of the voting material to few ballot papers in some regions, this didn’t dampen the voting spirit of hundred thousand county residents from exercising their patriotic rights to elect the leaders they need.
The voting in some places ended very late in the evening, and the vote tallying exercise started almost immediately.
There were very many surprises, and jubilations across the county streets and villages.
