We don't post very many pictures on this blog, but several images struck me in the past few days of election fever that I felt we should share.
First, if flags could vote ... . There were over 30 CCM and CHADEMA flags on display in Njombe bus stand this week, with a clear majority in favour of Chadema. Some brave and/or stupid CCM supporter tried to remove some of the CHADEMA flags, but as there's little doubt who the majority of piga-debes at the stand were supporting they got chased off pretty quick.
Polling day, but where is everyone? This is a polling station in Njombe Kusini constituency. I chatted to the Mgambo and Karani (pictured) for 15 minutes but not even a single voter was to be seen. We've had very low turnouts across most of Njombe.
