It has been brought to our attention that some IEBC registration clerks are working in cahoots with some individuals to frustrate ODM party members, supporters or anyone perceived to be sympathetic to ODM party during the current registration exercise
Some of our members and supporters particularly from Western, Nyanza and Coast have been issued with cards with missing serial and electors’ numbers for reasons only known to the clerks.
In Bungoma, there have been cases where individuals have gone to register only to discover that their ID numbers had been used to register other individuals from other constituencies such as Nyeri.
We are also getting reports that some registered voters are being lured into selling their details for petty sums as paltry as Kshs. 200
ODM party feels this is a deliberate move by the IEBC or its agents to rig out the party in the national elections as early as now.
We call on the IEBC to investigate these claims and take action if it is to retain its reputation as an independent, fair and credible body mandated to deliver clean elections for Kenyans.
In Marsabit the following pollng stations have been merged and the faulty machine is being used to register voters at the rate of 50 people per day.
- FURAHA NURSERY
- SKM PRIMARY SCHOOL
- AL HIDAYA PRIMARY SCHOOL
- MARSABIT FULL PRIMARY SCHOOL
In Laikipia North the same is true about the following polling stations
- DOL PRIMARY SCHOOL
- KURI KURI PRIMARY SCHOOL
- SIOR MOBILE
- SEEK MOBILE
It has also been noted that some BVR units are operating offline which means records can be led to a local database, be transferred by statisticians to a central subsequently there is a high chance of voters losing out in the process or being rejected during voting due to lost records in the transfer process.
There is need to verify information collected from voters before registration exercise comes to an end or before voting to ensure that those registered are indeed registered.
