Mystery of lone voter who never showed up

Lowangila Primary School polling station in Tigania East, Meru County had only one registered voter who never showed up.

The station is located right next to another polling station with a similar name but is in Isiolo County.

The Isiolo polling station gazzetted as Lowangila Pry School had 518 registered voters.

Lowangila village has in the past experienced violence as a result of conflict between the Turkana and Samburu communities.

The area has been marred by insecurity incidences with most being early morning raids on pastoralists.

Lowangila Primary School is not the only polling station with one registered voter.

There are five other stations namely; Barguque Dam in Eldas, Masaani Primary School in Kilome, Lochor-Apua Water Point in Turkana West, Eroret Primary School in Kajiado County and the Women’s Wing of Busia Prison.

Kenyans online have since speculated that being a lone voter may discourage one from voting as their choice would be exposed.
