• Voters were expected to find their stations from a list pinned on a wall outside.
•The voters said IEBC's decision to have all polling stations in one building complicated the process.
Confusion marred early polling at the Kaderbhouy Health Centre , as voters didn't know their polling stations.
At 8am, the voters were still arguing with the IEBC clerks and security officers at the centre.
Voters were expected to find their stations from a list pinned on a wall outside. The voters said IEBC's decision to have all polling stations in one building complicated things.
A good number of older people who could not read their names on the pinned list relied on literate voters to help them, as the clerks struggled to control crowds inside the packed room.
At 8am, rains disrupted the disorderly queues outside, even as the people in the line complained of IEBC's negligence of their welfare.
"They should have brought us tents to shelter us from the rains but they didn't. We came at 5am but little has been done. And then they will say Mombasa residents are lazy," a Mama Aisha said.
Another voter who only identified herself as Nyagah said she would only vote for good-looking candidates, and reject the incumbent who didn't deliver in the last five years.
"I have favourites who are in a party that I don't like so I won't vote for them. That's why I'll vote for those who I'll see to be appealing," Nyagah said.
