IEBC probing alleged electoral malpractices in Kajiado

24 March 2015, 09:15 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has said it will investigate reports on allegations of electoral malpractices in the just-concluded Kajiado Central by-election before taking action.

According to the commission, there are photos being circulated on social media insinuating that some individuals voted in the by-election despite not being registered as voters in the constituency. 

“If the photos are genuine, then it’s a matter of urgent concern and we call upon those with evidence to launch their complaints officially for the matter to be investigated,” IEBC said in a statement.

IEBC said it has put in place stringent measures to ensure that only registered voters in a polling station are allowed to vote there and that strangers are not allowed into polling stations and that those who took the pictures should have alerted election officials and security personnel immediately instead of waiting to spread the allegations on social media much later.

“It’s also not allowed for people to pose for pictures in polling stations before, during and after voting. Only accredited journalists are allowed to take pictures of the voting process,” the statement added.

IEBC has therefore calls upon those with evidence to file an official complaint through the appropriate channels and the matter will be investigated and violators charged in a court of law.

The by-election was won by ODM's Elijah Memusi Kanchori who garnered 16,008 votes while JAP's Patrick Tutui's got 15,567 votes.

There were reports that JAP was considering to contest Memusi's win in court.
