  • Former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga, has issued five demands to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairperson, Wafula Chebukati, ahead of his meeting with all the presidential candidates today (June 29).

    Speaking to Citizen TV on Tuesday, June 18, Raila's lawyer Paul Mwangi noted that they had written to the IEBC to furnish them with the full list of the voters register that was audited by KPMG.

    Azimio La Umoja added that they needed the detailed list of voters per polling station and the ID numbers used for registration.

    Further, they demanded that Chebukati makes public a list of all the polling station in the country and their location.

    The Raila-led faction is also demanding that they should be furnished with details of all election technologies to be used including the network connectivity of the polling stations and the KIEMS kit.

    "In this election, there is a very slow response at answering questions that have been asked, unlike previous elections.

    "The chairman last time indicated that they had identified people who had tried to sabotage the system and he promised that he will reveal who they were and what action was taken against them," stated Mwangi.

    Additionally, the Raila-led faction wants to be given a detailed report on the action that was taken against three electoral officials who were being investigated for the fraudulent transfer of voters.

    Mwangi explained that the electoral Commission needs to assure all the aspirants of the integrity of the polls.

    "The problem is that if you sabotage the technology on that day it means that some polling stations will not operate because they will not have the voters register."

    Further, Azimio questioned why presidential aspirants had not been furnished with details of the ballot papers printer with the team urging the electoral body to take candidates for a tour to the printing firm.

    Raila's team maintained that it would be prudent for the electoral body to ensure that all election materials are properly secured to prevent instances where some candidates will have access to the ballot papers before others.

    On his part, Raila stated that he would seek redress to some of the issues raised by the coalition in today's meeting with Chebukati.
