This after the Returning officer in Kilgoris constituency realized that tallied votes had outnumbered registered votes.

According to Elijah Ombogo (Returning officer) the total number of registered voters in the polling station are 285 while the total number of tallied votes were 325.

"The total number of registered voters is 285 while the total number of votes cast on Tuesday is 325," said Mr Ombogo.

Mr Ombogo called on officials to probe the discrepancy.

He said the presiding officer incharge of the centre should write a statement to explain how the situation came to be.

Mr Ombogo said all presiding officers will be liable for any tampering of results that might occur since the results they transmit would be final.
