Wiper Party Candidate Agnes Kavindu has cast her vote in the ongoing Machakos By-elections.

The candidate, who is the estranged wife of former senator Johnston Muthama cast her vote at the Kathome polling station.

Speaking to journalists after going through the voting process, Kavindu has expressed her confidence in the process lauding IEBC for contacting a smooth process.

"The exercise is good. They are conducting the voting process very well. I call on Machakos residents to come out in large numbers to vote," Kavindu noted.

With IEBC announcing that all polling stations have been opened, 622,965 registered voters are expected to cast their votes in the county.

Machakos county has 1335 polling stations across the 8 constituencies.

According to IEBC, 11 candidates are in the Machakos Senatorial race ballot paper, despite two of them dropping from the race.

The latest to withdraw from the race is Maendeleo Chap Chap's Mutua Katuku, who announced his withdrawal through Machakos Governor Dr Alfred Mutua one to elections.

Kavindu has warned fellow candidates against voter bribery, noting that some of her supporters have hinted to her of ongoing bribery.

"We have been told about some bribery, but they will not make it. The community is very alert, and the police are vigilant on the same," she added.

The voting process is ongoing across the county, with IEBC noting that the turn out is so far low.
