Nairobi - Capital News reports that the March 4 General Election will not be held on time if the Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits are not in the country by Tuesday next week.
Speaking during a media briefing, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Issack Hassan said on Wednesday afternoon that any further delays in the delivery of the kits “will bear grave consequences” on the forthcoming elections.
While noting the ripple effects that any delays would have on the elections, Hassan stressed the need to carry out the voter registration exercise in November to beat the tight timelines that risk choking the election process.
