Like most of my fellow Junubeen whose Kenya is the second home—and who are more conversant with the political intrigues, and politicians, of Kenya than they are of their own in South Sudan—the voting process has been so far so good. It is only a matter of about 30 mins (5 pm EAT) before all voting process stop, and the critical stage commences: the counting and transmission of votes from polling stations across the country to the central polling center at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi city, where vote tallying will begin to determine the winners. This is the most critical phase of the election process and where tempers might flare up. That stage will commence in about 3 hours’ time or so, once votes start arriving from the over 40 thousand polling stations across the country. As we all wait and pray for calm voting process and peaceful election outcome for Kenya, may the best candidate emerge the presidential winner, irrespective of their political leaning and ethnic background. Let’s remember that any violence in Kenya will devastate South Sudan and could lead to the fall of the government in Juba ~~~~Monologue from PaanLuel Wel~~~~~

    What your strong link here? Does it mean to you a stable Government in Kenya has been a Pillar stone for South Sudan? To me its a big miscalculation. There has been issues but it has never been so an issue the way I it. They only concern are South Sudanese in Kenya should any thing happen during these elections. No misleading the public here!
