By NJ Correspondent:
A mother was assaulted and several others manhandled by their closer relatives in Wajir after transferring their votes from Wajir West to Eldas constituencies to vote for their preferred candidates.
The incident which happened at the ICF voter registration center on Friday was captured on video by bystanders.
Watch the amateur video here below:
In the video, a son is seen yelling at his mother asking why she was transferring her vote to another constituency without his consent.
The incident comes as the recent clan negotiated democracy in North Eastern Kenya left women with no chance other than vote for the clan selected candidates.
Selection panels comprise mainly of male elders leaving women with no decision making over their political future.
