Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has publicly agreed to support former Prime Minister Raila Odinga in his push for the introduction of a manua register as a backup during the upcoming general elections, disagreeing with DP Ruto and the Kenya Kwanza brigade.
Despite DP Ruto and allies maintaining that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission should use the Electronic Voters System during the August polls, Tujibebe Party leader Hon William Kabogo has rallied his support behind Raila Odinga's push for a manual voters system saying that, the IEBC should consider the Manual system, saying,
"If you go to a polling station, and systems fail, how do you register to vote without a backup. IEBC is duty-bound to tell Kenyans what they are going to do in the event of failure," Kabogo has said.
Adding that he finds no wrong if the country has the third manual back up.
"What is so wrong with having a third manual backup? The electronic register could fail by design or by fault. Many people will go to vote but not find their names in the register. Who do we blame?" he has added.
