Kenya went through two elections circles in 2017 before a final winner was found in the presidential elections which had President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga as the top contenders.
According to Wafula Chebukati who is the current IEBC chairman, a lot of issues were recorded during the 2017 general elections. He added that there were seventy one complaints, nullification of thirty one election results, dismissal and withdrawal of forteen and three election cases respectively.
He went to say that the same will not be expected because code of conduct will be used even in campaigns to ensure elections to be held next year turns out to be free and fair.
"After 2017 general elections, there were 71 complaints, 31 elections nullified, 14 cases dismissed and three withdrawn. Four cases are yet to be determined. This time round code of conduct will come into force during campaigns, elections will be free and fair," read the statement from Chebukati.
