Nairobi county has finally held the much-awaited Jubilee Primaries that began on the morning of Wednesday, April 26.
The focus has mainly been on Peter Kenneth and Mike Sonko who are eyeing the Jubilee ticket.
The exercise despite starting late in most parts of the county was successful. There was however a nasty incident in Pangani where one person was stabbed when rival group clashed.
Sonko who cast his vote at the Bidii Primary School in Buruburu got a rude shock when he realized that his name was missing from the register.
He was later allowed to vote using his Identity Card after his followers caused a fracas outside the polling station.
Most Nairobi residents have complained of being locked out of the exercise as the Jubilee party was using a 2013 register which had not been updated.
According to Sonko, this was a new ploy that the Jubilee power brokers were using in order to rig him out.
For instance, Sonko said that a majority of Nairobi residents whose names start with letter ”O” had been locked out of the exercise.
Most voters whose names fall under that category are luo and in support of Senator Mike Sonko.
Whoever wins the Jubilee primaries in Nairobi will be up against Governor Evans Kidero who has since received a direct nomination.
