Nairobi - Daily Nation reports the six Supreme Court judges recommended investigation and possible prosecution of electoral commission officials for procurement of faulty electronic elections equipment.
According to the detailed judgment on the presidential election petition released on Tuesday, the judges said it was likely that the procurement of the electronic systems was marked by competing interests involving impropriety or even criminality at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
Evidence supplied by the electoral commission showed that the failure of the Electronic Voter Identification (Evid) and the Results Transmission Systems (RTS) mainly arose from misunderstandings and squabbles within the IEBC during the procurement stage.
