IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati Breaks Silence After Being Accused of Rigging Kiambaa By-election

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Wafula Chebukati has broken his silence after his body was accused of favouring the United Democratic Alliance (UDA)candidate John Njuguna Wanjiku in the Kiambaa by-election.

In a statement released on Thursday night, the IEBC boss said the by-election was conducted in a proper manner.

Chebukati challenged those feeling the by-election was not free and fair to seek legal address instead of lashing out at the commission.

He said all by-elections held since 20q7 have been free nad fair and all candidates have been conceding defeat.

According to Chebukati, all stakeholders were involved in the Kiambaa by-elections according to the law.

He added that the counting of results was done and announced at the polling station as per the law.

He further stated that both agents from Jubilee and UDA confirmed the outcome of the results and signed relevant forms.

He added that the Returning work did his work as directed by the Constitution that is to collate announce the results of each polling station across the country.

This comes even as the Jubilee Candidate Kariri Njama said that he will go to court to challenge the outcome of the by-election.

He said the election was not free and fare as directed by the Kenyan Constitution.
