On Tuesday, August 8, Martin Kamotho Njenga queued patiently, waiting for his turn to vote at the Imara Primary School polling station in Kayole when suddenly, hunger pangs struck. He left the queue and asked those around him to ‘watch’ his position in the queue as he would be returning shortly. Mr Kamotho emerged moments later with a polythene bag of githeri and munched his githeri quietly minding his business, occasionally craning his neck as if to check how long the queue was.
