Twenty-four people were treated for minor injuries following a dawn stampede on Tuesday at Moi Avenue Primary School in Nairobi.

IEBC vice chair Consolata Maina said 23 were treated at Kenyatta National Hospital and another at Nairobi Hospital.

She they were injured as voters pushed through the gate shortly after it was opened at about 5:45am for the general election.

“People had queued for long before our officials arrived. When the gate was opened, they got in and some were tramped on,” Maina said.

She said calm was restored and that voting is going smoothly though there are long queues.
