IEBC Responds to Claims Of Receiving Marked Ballot Papers From Uganda

Interim Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati has responded to claims that the commission had received marked ballot papers from Uganda. He said that the first batch of the ballot papers will arrive in Kenya today and will be kept at a safehouse to avoid any tampering.

In response to the claims by Azimio-One Kenya politicians, Chebukati said, "today we will receive a number of ballot papers and they are not from Uganda or some funny place, they are secure for the election, there is nothing like extra ballot papers like some politicians have claimed."

He added that the papers were serialized to avoid any fraud and that politicians should stop misinforming Kenyans.

This comes after the Azimio-One Kenya politicians raised concerns that Kenya Kwanza in partnership with IEBC had shipped marked ballot papers into the country through the Ugandan border.

Kenya Kwanza has refuted these claims saying that their opponents have sensed defeat an are looking for a reason not to participate in the elections.
