Kilonzo's call defies the demand by his Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition party bosses who have been calling for IEBC to use both the manual and electronic voter registers to avert any technological hitches that may arise on the day of the general elections.
Led by Hon Raila Amolo Odinga, Wiper Party Hon Kalonzo Musyoka and Odinga's running mate Hon Martha Karua, the Azimio chiefs have insisted that relying entirely on the eletronic system may lead to failure of the commission to carry out fficient and credible elections.
However, Kilonzo holds that he will oppose manual system, as this may lead to nullification of elction results by the courts as witnessed back in 2017 at the Supreme Court where president Uhuru's win of presidential elections was declared null and void.
''Anything to do with manual will cause problems, we will refuse it, and that is the sole reason why the Supreme Court nullified the 2017 presidential election,'' Mutula stated.
