Nairobi - Daily Nation reports the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is negotiating with Safaricom to accept the contract to transmit Makueni by-election results live.
Safaricom had withdrawn its support services to the commission saying that IEBC's level of preparedness for the by-election was not satisfactory.
According to IEBC's chief executive officer, James Oswago, they have formed a technical team to negotiate with Safaricom, saying they were confident the equipment would not fail.
