IEBC imposes heavy fine on double registration

12 November 2012, 15:12Ben Ali

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has warned all those who plan to register twice in the upcoming voter registration that they will be fined KES 100 000 or jailed for a year.

Central Rift Elections Coordinator Ibrahim Ali has said that the commission is very vigilant and wary of people who plan to register twice.

Ali says that the IEBC is on the lookout for those people who think that they can ‘cheat the system', warning the culprits that this may cost them a great deal.

He added, "The Elections Act specifies that all those found guilty of the offence will be fined KES 100 000 or jailed for a year or both.”

The Elections Coordinator said that they have received a total of 1 056 Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits that will be jointly used by the 2 353 registration centers ready for the exercise.

The morning meeting was aimed at making the public know and understand how the BVR works and what it means to be registered as voters.

While opening the meeting, Nakuru County Commissioner Amos Gatheca called on the people of Nakuru to collect their identification cards at the office of Registrar of Persons .

The commissioner added that his office will mobilize chiefs so that the common "mwananchi" can take advantage of the mobile registration exercise rolled out by the Registrar’s Office.

“We want to use the chiefs so that we can meet the people at the location level during these mobile registration exercises we have started," Gatheca said.
