Four IEBC officials under investigation after they were found in a former MCA candidate home

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in Homa Bay County is looking into allegations that four of its employees met at the residence of a former MCA candidate.

In a meeting with the politician and other persons, the IEBC officials—a presiding officer, two deputy presiding officers, and a clerk—were discovered, though it is unknown what they were talking about.

The gathering was happening in Riat village, which is part of the Kanyikela ward in the Ndiwa constituency.

On Sunday, August 7, 2022, IEBC representatives were "caught" in an aspirant's Homa Bay home, according to Ndiwa Police Station. The police received four IEBC officials who were discovered meeting with a politician.

Residents allegedly interrupted the meeting and followed IEBC representatives to Ndhiwa police station.

IEBC is permitted by the court to relocate the Tharaka Nithi tallying center.

The citizens asserted that the members of the electoral commission might have been plotting to sabotage the election scheduled for Tuesday.

The four were eventually turned over to the IEBC for additional inquiries. The electoral commission hired them to staff the polls in the Kwabwai and Kanyadoto wards.

Other IEBC attendees were able to leave the meeting when they noticed the crowd swarming the house.
