Every day that goes by brings the election season closer, and many politicians have made numerous assumptions about the credibility of the process. Recent election data show that both sides have been accusing one another of plots to rig elections by assuming certain election laws which may affect effectiveness of reaching to the elections date safely.
Voteing participation in the next elections is now showing some signs of reality thanks to the IEBC chairman Mr. Chebukati's effort after the first batch of ballots papers arrived today 7th June in preparation for the August poll. Kenyans can now smile since there is ample evidence demonstrating that elections are indeed taking place.
According to an exposé by a well-known NTV journalist, Moses Wetangula a senator in Western Kenya, he was recently being suspected with involvement in the printing of the ballots that will be used in the elections come August 9. According to the data mentioned in the report, Wafula Chebukati led IEBC Commission had allegedly entertained the three foreigners nine months before awarding the contract to the Greek company. The delegation visited Kenya for one week, from January 8 to January 14, 2021, according to the story.
Azimio is concerned that Wetangula significantly influenced the proceedings after the IEBC went to the High Court and distressed bidders were unable to prevent a south Africa company from receiving the contract. He added that Kenya Kwanza had intended to sneak ballots across the Kenya-Uganda border using its connections with the vote printing industry so that they can practice certain malpractices.
It has taken a long time to ensure the effectiveness of the vote paper printing, with numerous companies receiving tenders after being carefully vetted to obtain the highest level of transparency. Every candidate has received assurances from Mr Chebukati that everything is proceeding in accordance with the election laws, and he has been able to respond to any inquiries on the security of votes.
