IEBC urges Senators to help curb voter tampering during elections

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has called on Senators to help address the issue of transfer of voters from one locality to another during the electioneering period.

Speaking when he appeared before the Senate standing committee on Justice and Legal Affairs on Wednesday, IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati said many voters were denied the right to elect leaders of choice when transferred to new places.

He told the Committee that voters “should not be ferried to go and vote for leaders whom they do not even know.”
