Azimio Kakamega Gubernatorial Candidate To Sue Wafula Chebukati's IEBC, More Details Revealed

Fernandes Barasa, a candidate for governor of Kakamega, will go to court to demand compensation from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission after the election for the top county seat was postponed.

Mr. Barasa, who is running on an ODM ticket, accused the electoral agency of being extremely careless and charged the IEBC's procurement team with disregarding the procurement guidelines.

The IEBC chairperson, Mr. Chebukati, assured Kenyans that everything was in order after a team of commissioners travelled to Greece to verify the voting papers. I read rumours when the IEBC called off the poll, citing ballot mistakes and instances of details being mixed up, claimed Mr. Barasa.

He said that during his campaign for the elections on August 9, he expended all of his funds.

"Since preparation for the second time will be expensive as well, I must sue IEBC for expenditures. Agents will need to be paid, along with other logistics. The agents had already been paid and sent out to various voting places, where they spent their time until the IEBC declared that the polls had been postponed. The Commission has to pay me, he continued.
