Voters protest at Makeni, true

A Twitter user @touyuba posted a video of tens of protesters marching on the streets of Makeni and accusing the ECSL of denying them their constitutional right to vote because their names could not be found in the register.


DUBAWA proceeded to the Baptist Model Primary School, where the incident allegedly happened in Makeni. There was a crowd chanting, “we want to vote,” but there was no polling centre manager to speak to. Some of the voters had their Voter IDs and registration slips but said they had been denied a right to vote because their names could not be seen in the register. The voters marched to the ECSL office in Makeni, hoping to get the election body to restore their right to vote. At 6:00pm when DUBAWA was leaving the centre, the voters were yet to cast their ballots.
