Nairobi - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has said preparations are on course for the Kajiado Central Member of National Assembly by-election scheduled for Monday next week.

In a statement, the commission said hiring of election officials has been completed and training is ongoing up to 13 March.

“The Commission has engaged 290 presiding and deputy presiding officers as well as 330 polling clerks in the by-election. The officials will be deployed to their respective polling stations on the eve of elections on 15 March in readiness for polling,” the commission said.

Campaigns started on 18 February and are expected to end at 6.00pm on Saturday, 14 March.

“Procurement and distribution of election materials is ongoing and the Commission has taken the necessary measures to ensure that materials required are supplied in good time for timely distribution,” the statement from the commission added.

There are three candidates participating in the by-election; Elijah Memusi Kanchory of the Orange Democratic Movement, Kuntai Nkashuma (an Independent Candidate) and Jubilee Alliance Party’s Patrick Koinary ole Tutui.

 “Anyone who has a complaint of any electoral malpractice should formally launch it with the Returning Officer for appropriate action,” the commission said.

According to IEBC, Kajiado Central Constituency has a total of 39,545 registered voters across five County Assembly Wards in 102 polling stations.
