Prisoners at Narok GK Prison have called on Kenyans to maintain peace after the polls, saying Kenya is bigger than any specific individual.

Speaking to KNA after casting his vote on Tuesday, a convict, Leshan Ole Sadera observed that every competition has a winner and a loser hence the losers need to concede defeat.

“Life has to move on regardless of whether your preferred candidate won or lost, our country Kenya is bigger than any specific individual,” said Sadera.

Sadera who is serving a ten year imprisonment for being found with an illegal firearm asked Narok residents to exercise maturity by respecting the winning leaders.

Meanwhile, there was tension at Narok stadium after a heavy security team was deployed to guard the premises.
