Two people have been arrested for allegedly bribing voters at two polling stations in Kibra.
The two, a man and a woman, were arrested separately on Thursday at YMCA polling station and Old Kibra Primary school.
The two were roughed up and put in a police car amid tight security in the polling stations.
Nairobi Area police boss Philip Ndolo said they will be charged after witnesses come out to testify against them.
“We will only take them to court when there is evidence,” he told the Star as the residents were seen baying for their blood.
“The incident here was of a person who appeared to be moving from line to line. Voters identified him and rescued him,” Rarieda MP Atiende Amollo said.

Residents asked why some people were being given money.
“Kama mnajua mko na kura mbona mnagawa pesa. They are giving people Sh200 each. We don’t want your money,” One was heard shouting.
