There was drama at Msambweni by-election after Mvita Member of Parliament Abdullswamad Sheriff clashed with his Nyali counterpart Mohammed Ali.

The two clashed at ODM candidate Omar Boga's home area in Mworoni primary school, Ukunda township.

In the video shared by KBC, the two can be seen in a fistfight with their supporters trying to separate them.

It is not clear why the two clashed.

Meanwhile, Msambweni residents have today taken to the polls to elect their new Member of Parliament in an election that has been termed as a battle between the pro-handshake team and the Hustlers movement.

Voters started queuing at polling stations as early as 6:30 am, indicating how eager they are to vote in their new leader.

Media reports indicate that voters washed their hands before accessing the polling station, and were also screened for temperature as directed by the Ministry of Health.

According to observers, the election process is fairing on well although there is very low turnout which is synonymous with by-elections.

In most polling stations, the exercise is largely peaceful with security officers ensuring that election rules are adhered to.
