IEBC tender row persists as election clock ticks

19 July 2012, 07:59

A new tender board trying to resolve the crisis over the Sh3.9 billion voter registration kits contract for the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission met until late Wednesday evening as concern mounted over the impact of the standoff.

By the time we went to press, there was no word on whether the matter had been resolved, as the new team that replaced the former group led by Ms Praxedes Tororey remained tight-lipped.

Wrangles over the tender forced the resignation of the initial board as IEBC sought to fast track the tendering process. The row over the purchase of the 9,750 Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits has sent fresh fears of delays in the electoral process, with the IEBC bosses admitting registration of voters, which was to take off in mid-next month will now be pushed to early September due to the imminent delay in acquisition of the kit.
