Jubilee Officials Boycott Election.

Image result for Jubilee Officials Boycott Election.At least 40 Jubilee Party agents have failed to show up at various polling stations in Mombasa County.

Speaking after casting his vote at PHD in Mwembe Tayari, Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala stated that majority of those who failed to show up were from Mvita and Kisauni contituencies.

Mr Balala stated that the move forced Jubilee to have other officers on standby to replace those who stayed away.

The CS stated that the agents had gone through training and accepted the work before receiving their allowances.

Balala who is also the party's campaign coordinator at the Coast noted that the agents would face consequences.

He further accused National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga of creating fear among residents leading to the poor voter turnout.

"The agents did not show up in a few polling stations. This is a problem of dishonesty. But we are going to take legal action against the agents who did not show up. I want to warn them that as Jubilee Party, we are going to deal with them," Balala stated.

"We have seen in the morning the turnout was low. Some people, especially women and the elderly, fear to come out to vote. I encourage voters to come out to exercise their democratic right," he added.

On Wednesday, Mr Odinga asked his supporters to boycott elections and urged them to stay at home and engage in prayers.

The NASA leader claimed that there was a plan by the government to massacre his supporters and as such asked them to stay away from polling stations.
