New IEBC will not stop Jubilee from rigging 2017 elections, says analyst

Nairobi - Reconstitution of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) will not stop Jubilee from rigging the 2017 general elections, a political analyst has said.

Nakuru based political analyst Wenga Oundo said that Jubilee is in control of all government machinery needed to rig an election and they won’t hesitate to use them in directing the outcome of the 2017 polls in their favour.

Speaking Wednesday at an interview in Nakuru town, Oundo said that hiring new IEBC commissioners will change nothing because Jubilee will still rig if they need to.

He added that it will be extremely hard for Jubilee, which is the sitting government, to accept to relinquish power.

Oundo added that Jubilee will manipulate all state machinery and organs during the 2017 polls to ensure that the government of the day wins.

“Jubilee is in power and that gives it control over all state machinery including IEBC and there is no way a sitting government will sit and watch as power is taken away by the opposition,” he said.

“Changing the commissioners doesn’t help and won’t stop Jubilee from doing what they want to do with the election including rigging,” said Oundo.

He added, “Jubilee can manipulate everything if they want and CORD won’t stop them.”

The analyst said that serving African governments are never willing to cede power and Jubilee will not be an exception.

“In Africa, once one has tasted power, it becomes hard for him to let it go and that is why we rarely witness free and fair elections in most of African countries, Kenya being one of them and therefore the issue is not about IEBC but about the whole system,” he said.
