Azimio ICT Guru Reveals How 2.3 Million Votes May Be At Risk If IEBC Does Not Use Manual Register

The Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission has a very difficult task to ensure that the August 9 elections are conducted to the satisfaction of all concerned, namely candidates and voters.

Nobody wants a repeat of the violence witnessed in 2007-2008 after Kenyans were unhappy with the outcome of the vote.   IEBC also commemorates the annulment of the results of the 2017 election when the then Supreme Court, led by Supreme Court President David Maraga, ordered the election to be rerun. The Supreme Court Justices pointed out several errors in their ruling and made recommendations to the IEBC.  

However, there are still a few candidates who are not entirely satisfied with the way the electoral body has prepared them so far.Recently, George Njoroge, Azimio la Umoja's Chief Technology Officer, criticized the IEBC's refusal to use manual registration, saying it would put 2.3 million votes at risk.

The IEBC has insisted it will rely solely on electronic voter registration and will use electronic devices (Kiems kits) to identify voters.  Mr Njoroge was quoted as saying: “There are 1,111 unaffiliated polling stations, each stream has 700 voters if each of the dark sites has one stream, total 777,700 voters if they have three, that's about 2 .3 million voters on dark sides we cannot see.” their skeptics of the integrity of the upcoming election. If not, we could see a repeat of the 2017 scenario, with the results being rejected.
