The delay in announcing election results has been caused by large voter turn-out, according to the electoral commission chairman, Isaack Hassan (file photo).

Alice Wambui Ng'ang'a becomes the first woman MP elect to represent the new Thika constituency.

She bagged 72,851 votes.

Second was Elizabeth Matere who got 7,700 votes while David Njehia finished third with 5,500 votes.
