In what will come across as a really shocking development, a woman has lost her unborn baby after casting her vote in Kenya. 

A Kenyan woman has had a miscarriage while another gave birth at a polling station in West Pokot County during the nation's presidential election.

According to Daily Nation, a middle-aged woman gave birth while queuing for more than three hours at Konyau Mixed Secondary School polling station in North Pokot Sub County.

According to Kapchok MCA Peter Lokor, the woman experienced labour pains on the queue and declined to be rushed to Konyau dispensary to be attended to.

Instead, she insisted on voting first.

"Let me vote before rushing me to the hospital. This is my democratic right," she said.

But she gave birth before she was able to cast her ballot.

Mr Lokor said the delivery was safe and the child was named Hellen Chepkura, which means elections.

But the same cannot be said of another woman who had a miscarriage

The 33-year-old was queuing at Kuwit polling centre when she started having labour pains under the blistering heat.

But her complains, Mr Lokor said, were brushed off.

Nonetheless, she was able to vote but later when she went to a health facility, the MCA added, she was told she had a miscarriage, also known as late foetal loss.

Ms Selina Chepuray, a resident, said that most mothers in the region experience premature deliveries due to lack of food.

"This area faces so many challenges; women are forced to walk long distances searching for food and water. This has resulted to expectant mothers to miscarry," she said.

At the same time, a spot check by the Nation indicatedthat most of the pastoralists who had migrated in search of pasture in other regions had retuned and most took part in the exercise.

"I had migrated to Uganda in search of pasture for my animals but I decided to come back and vote since it's my democratic right. I want to elect my own leaders," a herder said.
