Going after IEBC officials is going after vote based system

While the reason for Gichugu Constituency Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission's returning official Geoffrey Gitobu's passing was at this point to be laid out by August 23, it in any case caused a commotion.

Which isn't is to be expected assuming you think about the new goes after against IEBC authorities. For instance, the Embakasi East Constituency IEBC Returning Officer Daniel Mbolu Musyoka vanished On August 11, 2022. His body was found unloaded in Oloitoktok, Kajiado County, days after the fact.

On August 9, 2022, Mohameed Qanyare, the managing official of Towheed surveying station, in Eldas, Wajir County, was shot threefold in the leg by obscure shooters. His leg has since been cut away.

Then, at that point, there was the assault that was gotten on camera against IEBC authorities, including IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati as he was getting ready to report the official political decision results, at the Bomas of Kenya on August 15.

As though that isn't sufficient, IEBC says its authorities were gone after on Monday night while planning reactions for the official political race petitions.

Such barefaced assaults must be deciphered as pointed toward compelling the IEBC authorities to take a specific heading or to rebuff them for not towing the line. Be that as it may, anything the explanation, such activities are criminal and police act solidly against the culprits.

IEBC is a free organization and should be given space to take care of its responsibilities without outer obstruction. That, in any case, isn't to say that the organization is awesome or that its authorities are unquestionably sound.

Police should do all that could be within reach to secure those behind the assaults against the IEBC authorities. They should be caused to feel the entirety of the law. What's more, police should offer satisfactory security to IEBC authorities so they can complete out their work unafraid. An assault against IEBC authorities is an assault on majority rule government.
