Details of a nighttime meeting between the chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), Wafula Chebukati, and representatives of the UDA and Azimio parties have come to light as the national presidential vote count nears its conclusion. The meeting, which lasted more than three hours, was held on August 14th, Sunday night, under the direction of the elections board chairman. All of the commissioners, party agents, and secretaries in charge of the Bomas exercise were in attendance. The primary topic of discussion at the meeting was the ongoing disorder and jeering at the tallying center. As the drill neared its conclusion, Chebukati advised head agents to advise colleagues to maintain peace and harmony. Chebukati also warned the agents that if any of their members is found inciting citizens after elections then it will not be business as usual. He urged all the members to take results positively and incase of anything they should be ready to act the democratic way in resolving matters concerning elections. This means that they can involve the court instead of inciting Kenyans to take actions. (Source, Kenyans.CO.KE).
