Azimio la Umoja The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) must adopt both the manual and electronic voter registers, according to one Kenyan presidential candidate, Raila Odinga. If they don’t, there won’t be an election.
Odinga insisted that both registers must be accessible due to alleged attempts by the Wafula Chebukati-led commission to sabotage the upcoming election.
The Azimio chief declared that the manual register in every polling place is an unavoidable minimum for his camp while speaking to a crowd in Githunguri on Wednesday as part of a charm offensive in Kiambu County.
“It will be simple to determine the number of voters at each polling place with a manual register. No record is still present in the electronic register, according to Odinga.
“For this reason, we are stating categorically that there must be a manual register at each and every polling place. We’re telling the IEBC that if they don’t have a manual voter register and biometric voter identification on that day, there won’t be an election.
Odinga claimed to have sufficient and trustworthy information about a plot to print extra pre-marked ballots in a nearby nation and smuggle them in on election day.
After President Uhuru Kenyatta announced his retirement in August, the Azimio leader and his running mate Martha Karua pleaded with voters to give them a mandate to lead the nation.
If elected, the Azimio government, according to Karua, will support everyone’s rights while being strict about wrongdoings, particularly graft.
