CORD demands IEBC disbandment over 2013 poll

21 April 2014, 08:03 William Korir

Nairobi - The Coalition for the Restoration of Democracy CORD has demanded for the disbandment of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC over malpractices in the 2013 general election.

This follows the release of a leaked secret recording in which a supposed senior official of the IEBC is heard saying that the integrity of the poll is in question, just a day to the announcement of the poll results.

The recording, of whose name the supposed official is not released, says that there were moles hired in the IEBC's IT department thus the electronic system used for the election was flawed.

CORD leaders Sunday, led by principal Moses Wetangula and interim ODM party leader Prof. Anyang Nyong'o, said that the tape was reason enough to have the IEBC disbanded.

" It is further proof that the elections were bungled and we call for the disbandment of the IEBC to pave way for a new body, he said.

" There were many malpractices and it was utterly unfair to declare anyone winner of the elections, he added.

According to Prof. Nyong'o, the coalition accepted the election results not because they were the right ones but for the sake of peace in the country.

" It has been well documented that the elections were a sham but we let it go because we had to consider the peaceful co-existence of Kenyans, he said.

" IEBC should be disbanded and a new commission set-up, he added.

The IEBC has always maintained that the elections were within the law and met the constitutional threshold for general elections.

" The elections were free and fair and we would like to put that case to rest, IEBC chair Isack Hassan said when contacted Sunday by News24.

" The allegations are of course hurting and we will get to the bottom of the matter because it entails the integrity of many people, he added.
