Activist Okiya Omtatah Spills the Beans, Alleges What IEBC is Planning to Do Secretly Ahead of 2022

The 2022 general election is fast approaching with the country gearing up to what is anticipated to be a highly contested election that will see various political bigwigs square it out with each other for the various seats.

As this happens, the country's electoral body - the independent electoral and boundaries commission (IEBC) has come under sharp focus as it is expected to oversee the highly charged election. As such, the Wafula Chebukati- led team had asked for a whooping amount totalling over 40Billion to prepare for the elections.

However, those plans may be tainted after renown kenyan activist Okiya Omtatah emerged with serious allegations against IEBC in his case filed at the High Court. As The Star reports, Okiya Omtatah has alleged a dead rat in IEBC indicating that the commission is secretly planning to go against the Constitution in its tendering process.

Omtatah says that IEBC plans to single source and issue a tender for election materials supply to a firm identified as 'Delaru Kenya EPZ limited,' a move that goes against procurement laws.

The existing contract with the firm was set to expire in four months time with the firm having been tasked to print ballot papers and other elections materials in the last polls.
