Azimio allied leaders have intercepted an alleged scheme to rig votes in the Starehe constituency.

Video shared by Ministry of Industrialization CAS David Osiany Showed a man being questioned over ballot papers they claim were in his possession.

According to Osiany, some of the papers were marked, others stamped while others are unmarked.

"We have arrested anomalies in Starehe. Unmarked and pre-marked ballot papers, yet stamped already. Remember, ballot papers were to be stamped during issuance. Unfortunate," he wrote on Facebook.

Osiany was flanked by a group of Azimio leaders including ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna, outgoing Kitui governor Charity Ngilu, and Nairobi Woman Rep Esther Passaris among others.

ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna said both marked and unmarked ballot papers were recovered from suspects in Starehe Constituency.

He said the ballots were taken to Central Police Station, Nairobi, as the case is being handled.

"We must leave everything here and go to the Bomas of Kenya so that IEBC can stop this," Ngilu said in the video.
