Kericho - Kericho senatorial aspirants from the National Vision Party (NVP) and KANU have given the Electoral commission IEBC one week to investigate claims that the registrar of persons has been issuing identity cards to be used in the registration of voters in favour of the Jubilee Party (JAP).
They want the IEBC to give a clear guideline in regards to the registration of new voters in the County and avail the registers publicly for scrutiny by the voters.
Hon Daniel Tonui of NVP and Paul Sang of KANU have said that it is a scheme by the JAP to rig the March 7 senatorial election. They now want the public to come out and report any strange activity in the registration process.
However, the two aspirants asked the registrar of persons to hold the IDs issuance until the elections are over to avoid rigging speculations.
JAP representatives in the region have however dismissed these claims terming them as a sign of despair among the aspirants.
Former Ainamoi MP, Benjamin Langat has said that the aspirants have already conceded defeat way before the elections. He has also said that the registration of ID cards is the right of every Kenyans.
