IEBC quietly kicks off voter registration exercise

21 May 2014, 08:11

Nairobi - Officials from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) had a hard time to explain to the MPs as to why they had quietly kicked off the voter registration exercise ahead of the 2017 polls.

Speaking when they appeared before Parliament’s Justice and Legal Affairs Committee, the officials led by the IEBC vice-chairperson Lilian Mahiri-Zaja said that they began the exercise at constituency offices since April 15 and it is still ongoing, Daily Nation reports.

Asked as to why the IEBC did not make a public announcement about the exercise, Mahiri-Zaja said they did not have enough funds to pay for advertising and media campaigns to ask people to register as voters and asked for more funds to help the commission to facilitate the exercise.

However, the MPs were not satisfied with the explanation that was given by Mahiri-Zaja saying the commission was wrong to register voters without informing members of the public.

They said Kenyans would raise questions as to why they were not informed about the exercise and this would have a negative impact on the credibility of the commission in conducting the next polls.
