A man collapsed and died after casting his vote at Lela Primary School polling station in Kobura ward in Kisumu’s Nyando Constituency.

According to Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma, the deceased, Patrick Atindo, was the fifth person in line to vote.

“He was number five but he was pushed to the front so that he could vote. Unfortunately he collapsed thereafter and was rushed to the hospital,” said Mr Ranguma.

His son, Silvanus Ouma told Nairobi News that his father woke up at 5am very energetic and ready to participate in the General Elections.

GOOD HEALTH

“My father woke up in good health and went to Lela where he voted. He collapsed as he was going to the shade to take a rest,” said Mr Ouma.

He said the medical attendants at Ahero Hospital carried a series of test on the deceased but could not establish his ailment.

“As were waiting for the results outside we got news that our father was no more,” he said.

Mary Atinda, the deceased’s wife, said that she had accompanied her husband to the polling station to vote.

“We were in different polling rooms. I finished earlier and left him in line waiting to vote, only to be called later he had collapsed,” said Mrs Atinda.

The body of the 64-year-old man victim has been taken to Ahero Sub-County Mortuary awaiting postmortem investigations.
