Waiguru Opens up, Reveals What's Already Being Planned Ahead of 2027 Election

Kenyans should expect a better experience in the 2027 general election, Council of Governors (CoG) Chairperson Anne Waiguru has said.

This comes at a time when the country is fresh from the August 2022 poll, which remains a controversial one, with allegations coming in from all corners.

Waiguru, who attended a Post-Election Evaluation forum hosted by IEBC at Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi on Monday, said that things will be better in 2027.

She says that as involved parties, they looked at the challenges faced by the outgoing IEBC team and are now working on recommendations to better things.

"We look forward to Kenya implementing proposed policy and strategic reforms from all election stakeholders," she said as is quoted by The Star.

The Kirinyaga governor also stressed on the need for Kenyans to celebrate all the people who took part in planning, organising and conducting the poll to make it a success as was witnessed.

She held that everybody involved must get the acknowledgement they need, including those who lost their lives while trying to give Kenyans a free and fair election process.

"To these patriots who include: Returning officers, presiding officers, polling clerks and their supporting staff. This country owes you a debt of gratitude. Only God can reward you," she said.

This comes at a time when the election has been given a clean bill of health from most quarters, and has been hailed as very transparent.

Among those praising Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chair Wafula Chebukati of a spotless job is the European Union, which on Monday said that the poll was held in the best manner.

But this has not prevented the existence of those unhappy, among them Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga, who claims that he was rigged out in the presidential race.
