    This is a wake up call for Ballot snatchers. This guy never knew he will meet his Waterloo when he attempted to snatch a ballot box. He relied so much on his father status thinking he would get away with it but that attempt appeared to be his last attempt on earth. If all voters can do the same thing to other politicians our voting system will not be violated by any paid hoodlums.

    While l will not condone jungle justice, l think Jilo has a point. Why snatching ballot boxes. The boxes as that time belong to every body present and even those not present. Our political thugs and politicians should learn to accept election results whether it favours them or not. That’s democracy.
    Let me emphasis here that life is sacred and taking it out in this manner is dehumanizing.
