Lack of ballot boxes and papers, rowdy youth, tear gas, demonstrations, burning tyres and fights characterize party nominations in Kibra and Langatta constituencies.
After the two day nomination melee in Kibra constituency, the political parties have declared their parliamentary and County assembly results. The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) declared Kenneth Okoth the winner. United Democratic Forum (UDF) will be represented by Ndura Waruinge while James Sigar will fly the Labour Party of Kenya LPK ticket.
In Langatta constituency, United Republican Party URP will be represented by Nixon Korir. Jacob Dundos was controversially awarded the ODM certificate though Joash Olum was declared the winner. Andrew Kibe will carry the UDF flag. Stanley Livondo won The National Alliance (TNA) primaries without any campaign, though he had already decamped to UDF, and awarded the senatorial ticket.

David Kitavi was clinched the Wiper Democratic Party ticket, while James Kiarie will represent TNA. In Sarangombe, ODM will be represented by Owino K’Otieno, though his certificate is contested.

The two constituencies equally experienced more drama during the nomination.ODM and UDF did not conduct nominations in Laini Saba and Mugumoini wards respectively. TNA postponed its nomination on 17th due to lack of proper preparation, though they pointed an accusing finger to IEBC for availing the voter registration list late.
