Questions Raised as Loopholes Emerge on IEBC's Readiness To Handle 2022 Polls

All eyes are focused on the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission as 2022 polls draw closer. The elections body is mandated to oversee several tasks ahead of and during the actual day of the much anticipated event.

However , according to KTN , several issues have raised an alarm over the body's readiness to handle the critical event. Several questions have been raised on the body's preparation to handle the poll following recent incidences where the agency sat at various poll preparations forums .

According to the publications, divisions have also started creeping into the body again .This is what happened prior to and after the 2017 poll which saw some of the commissioners resigning leaving the body at the mercies of its chairperson Wafula Chibukati.

Tender wars as well as need for voter registration have also come to haunt the body once more. These are worrying details even as the political temperatures are gradually rising across the country with political bigwigs traversing the country to popularize their bids.

Many wish that the electoral body should portray reliability even as the political analyst insinuate that the country may be headed for a two horse presidential race between Raila Odinga and Dp Ruto .
