The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has provided an updated register for voters in the Kibra constituency ahead of the mini-poll scheduled for November 7.
This is barely a day after the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) threatened to march to the IEBC offices to demand the register.
In a statement signed by the commission's Chairman Wafula Chebukati and posted on Twitter, the electoral body said it has released a voters' register that will be used for the upcoming by-election in Kibra.
''In response to the two letters of 20th September 2019 and 30th September 2019, the IEBC Acting CEO wrote to ODM advising them to pay Kshs. 15,000 which ODM paid. The Commission has from today posted the changes to the Kibra register of voters detailed above in the Constituency Returning Officer’s office for seven (7) days inspection and verification,'' read part of the statement.
The IEBC also affirmed their commitment to conducting the elections according to the law;
''The Commission gives assurance that it will strictly comply with the law and no registered voter will be disenfranchised as every vote counts,'' Chebukati noted in the statement.
A section of ODM MPs addressed the press at the Parliament Building on Tuesday where they expressed concerns that that IEBC could be working with Jubilee Party to rig out their candidate, Imran Okoth.
