Kenya’s maiden first lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta cast her vote at the Mutomo primary school polling station in Ichaweri, Gatundu South constituency in Kiambu county.

Speaking to the media after casting her ballot, Mama Ngina urged Kenyans to come out and vote for the next set of leaders.

The importance of voting is being able to choose the country’s leaders,” she said.

President Uhuru Kenyatta arrived at the polling station a few minitues after 9am. He was accompanied by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.

A contingent of GSU officers has already been dispatched to the centre to ensure security ahead of his arrival.

Vote peacefully and go home to wait for the results,” President Kenyatta said after casting his ballot.

Responding to questions from the media, the President said the voting exercise at the Mutomo Primary School polling station was smooth and he hoped the same will apply across the country.

In Mombasa, Governor Hassan Joho asked residents to vote despite not being able to participate in choosing their next governor.

He said that some polling stations in the county had started late but all was going on smoothly and the time lost would be recovered.

ODM leader Raila Odinga is expected to cats his vote at Old Kibera Primary School later this morning.
