In Summary
  • Under the Kura Yangu Sauti Yangu initiative, the civil societies said IEBC should sack all staff implicated in subversion of voters’ will. 

  • Their call came a day before the civil societies petition Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko to charge the officials.

  • Ms Gladwell Otieno, the executive director of African Centre for Open Governance, said the sackings must be done before the fresh poll.

Rights activists and some religious leaders want IEBC officials who bungled August 8 polls to be sacked and prosecuted.

The two groups on Tuesday said officials found to be partisan should not be allowed to manage October 17 repeat presidential election.

SACKINGS

Under the Kura Yangu Sauti Yangu initiative, the civil societies said IEBC should sack all staff implicated in subversion of voters’ will. 

Their call came a day before the civil societies petition Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko to charge the officials.

Ms Gladwell Otieno, the executive director of African Centre for Open Governance, said the sackings must be done before the fresh poll.

“Kenyans cannot risk going to another election with the same people who bungled the presidential election that was nullified by the Supreme Court,” Ms Otieno said.

The call comes a day after IEBC chiefs buried the hatched in Naivasha and resolved to work together on the repeat poll.
