Adventures of a Bonfire Offer Uasin Gishu ‘Sina maoni’ Man an All-Expenses-Paid Trip
The man, who has not yet been identified, is wanted by travel company Bonfire Adventures so he can claim the fully paid three-day vacation.
“Mtu was sina maoni ako wapi apate 3 days vacation aweze kupata maoni? We are looking for him” the company posted on its social media.
This isn’t the first time the company has rewarded someone who stood out in the election. In 2017, Martin Kamotho, popularly known as “Githeri Man”, who tended to queue to vote while eating githeri, received a sponsored trip to the Maasai Mara.
Apart from the trip, the githeri man was able to witness the President’s inauguration and even received a Head of State Commendation from President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The August 9 elections not only saw the person “Sina maoni”, but were filled with humor as a number of people headed to vote in style.
In one instance, a voter walked to the polling station in a towel alone while another was spotted chowing down on bread as they queued to vote.
Presidential voter count underway in Bomas
However, the winner of the presidential election has not yet been announced and the counting of voters is underway at the national counting centre.
The Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has confirmed that it will only allow limited access to the National Counting Center in Bomas, Kenya.
IEBC Commissioner Abdi Guliye said only chief presidential officers, their aides, employees, diplomats, observers and media will be allowed into the counting centre.
The exercise has been an emotional affair with frequent clashes as politicians from all political stripes face off in a bid.
