Makueni close to dissolution as IEBC verifies signatures

16 December 2014, 11:36 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta can now pick a commission to investigate the petition by Makueni voters to send Governor Kivutha Kibwana and the ward representatives home.

This comes after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Tuesday announced that it had completed verifying signatures on the petition for dissolution of the county government.

In a statement, IEBC said the exercise involved 249 booklets containing 50,826 signatures.

“The threshold is 10% of registered voters in the county which is 28,000. This was realized and we have forwarded to the President,” IEBC said.

Makueni residents petitioned President Kenyatta to dissolve the county government following leadership disputes among the leaders in the county.

President Kenyatta and the Council of Governors unanimously supported the signed memorandum and had asked IEBC to verify the signatures before forming a commission to investigate the residents’ demand.
