On Wednesday, IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati met ODM officials who were at the commission's office demanding for an updated foolproof register of voters in Kibra constituency.

Kuria noted that ODM made a mistake by abandoning their rigorous quest for electoral reforms and opting to 'enjoy red carpet' given to them after the handshake.

The vocal lawmaker further argued that he had cautioned ODM to stick to the goal of fighting for electoral reforms and seek more support from like-minded leaders of other parties in order to achieve the objectives of the same.

However, the legislator alleged that his proposal was passed and removed from the final report in Parliament.

 "I warned them before that we must all work together consistently to reform and strengthen IEBC and to learn from past mistakes. As a member of the Windsor Kiraitu-Orengo committee on IEBC reform, I suggested in 2016 that the committee be converted into a long term bipartisan committee to oversee continuous electoral reform."

"My proposal was passed by a leading Jubilee honcho in Parliament [but] ensured it was removed from the final report. Did you imagine 2022 will be conducted by Nchuri Ncheke, Miyoot Elders or Kamagambo Chiefs?" read his post.

He told ODM to stop giving IEBC unnecessary demands.

In the meeting with ODM officials, Chebukati alleged that the commission was still in the process of preparing venues and dealing with other issues concerning the by-election.

The chairman said that a comprehensive update of the voter register and the scheduled election activities would be available on Friday next week, adding that no voter would be left behind in the mini-polls.
