Several passengers travelling to vote at home have been left stranded following a shortage of vehicles in Kisumu.
At the Kisumu bus pack, tens of passengers were seated on the waiting bench hoping that vehicles will arrive to take them home.
According to John Ochiel, a driver plying Kisumu-Kisii road, the number of passengers has increased since Friday last week.
He noted that the majority of passengers were only travelling one way thus making all the available vehicles move in one direction.
"There are so many passengers travelling on one way since Friday last week and since then, we are having a challenge," he said.
He added that as much they are making a lot of profit and business is booming, the vehicle comes back empty as there are no passengers travelling back to town.
One of the passengers Millicent Awuor who was travelling to Migori from Kisumu says that she had to travel back to the village to exercise her democratic right.
"I did not anticipate missing a vehicle but all in all, I must travel home to vote since our country needs better leadership and I know that my vote will make a change," she said.
She also noted that the matatu operators did not increase bus charges despite passengers thronging the bus pack.
