Raila Odinga message to IEBC about the next election shocks Uhuru Kenyatta!

Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Presidential aspirant Raila Odinga has take a swipe at IEBC about the next General Election.

The opposition leader now questions the electoral body’s decision to disallow use of manual voter registers across the 46,000 polling stations as a complementary mechanism to electronic identification of voters in the August 9th polls.

Via his chief legal adviser Paul Mwangi, the ODM party leader wants Wafula Chebukati to explain the rationale of his administrative directive and measures taken to ensure that the electronic voter identification system will not collapse.

This is after Chebukati said that this time round, he will not allow manual voter rollout adding that the most of the malpractices in 2017 election were as a result of the physical voter registers.

“As a result of the 2017 post-election evaluation, most of the malpractices were as a result of the physical voter registers.

“We believe that using the digital registers will cut down these malpractices where a presiding officer has knowledge of who has not voted, their ID numbers and is therefore able to input their details in the KIEMs kits, allowing malpractices to happen,” said Chebukati.

Raila and his team now wants IEBC to adopt manual voter verification as opposed to digital adding that there is high possibility that technology will fail during the voting process. More
