Malindi constituents have yet again elected a woman Member of Parliament after Amina Mnyazi of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) floored seven men in the just concluded General Election.

Mnyazi takes over from Aisha Jumwa who contested for the Kilifi governorship position on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party ticket.

She garnered 21,634 votes against her closest competitor, Willy Mtengo of the Pamoja African Alliance (PAA), who clinched 9,437 votes followed by Daniel Chiriba of UDA who got 7,221 votes.

The Malindi constituency Returning Officer, Mwanajuma Ali, said the constituency had 94,605 registered voters. 

Earlier, chaos had rocked the Barani Secondary School tallying centre after UDA and PAA politicians stormed the venue bringing the tallying exercise to a standstill before police officers intervened.
