Breaking: Drama as Man Interrupts Chebukati's Meeting With DP Ruto, Raila, Wajakoyah

Wednesday's meeting between presidential candidates and the IEBC to discuss voter preparation started badly after unknown man disrupted it.

The unidentified man approached the chair of the electoral agency, Wafula Chebukati, with a banner and made some demands just as Chebukati was ready to welcome candidates to express their concerns.

The unidentified man was heard shouting, "All I want is my freedom," as security carried him out of the room on their shoulders.

At the Windsor hotel in Nairobi, the IEBC is now receiving concerns from presidential aspirants over electoral protocols.

The most contentious issue among all contenders is the availability of a supplementary voter identification method.

The discussion was prompted by the commission's decision not to use the manual voter register to identify voters on election day if Kiems kits malfunction.

Because the alphanumeric system can trace voters and prevent multiple voting, the agency recommends the adoption of electronic voter identification exclusively.

Further, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission argued that paper voter registration lists are susceptible to manipulation.
