Big win for Raila after court issued crucial order to IEBC in favour of Azimio la Umoja!

Its a big win for Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his team after the high court granted them their wish during 9th general election.

This after high court directed Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission[IEBC] to use manual register to identify voters in the forthcoming elections.

Justice Mugure trashed  IEBC’s stand that they will only use electronic mode of voter identification.

Justice Thande further said that the use of  electronic voter register will only deny many eligible voters to vote.

“IEBC’s decision not to use the printed voter register, there is a real risk of disenfranchising eligible voters. This court must therefore step in through its supervisory jurisdiction to ensure that the commission though independent operates subject to the law,” he said.
