A lobby group has put the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission on the spot over the Kibra voters register with claims that over 10,000 voters from outside Kibra  have been sneaked into the Kibra voter register.

Political Justice Movement claims that another 19,000 voters have been deleted from the Kibra voter register.

The movement’s Director Cidi Otieno claims that this is a plot interfere with the credibility of the forthcoming Kibra by elections.

“IEBC claims that only one person has died in Kibra since the 2017 elections and that is MP Ken Okoth. This is so wrong because we know of very many voters who have died since 2017,” said Otieno.

“Now if the can miss on such a simple fact, how do we know that the register is accurate ahead of the by elections?” he posed.

IEBC had earlier stated that only 333 people were added to the register after ODM demanded to have a look at the register.

The Kibra by election is slated for November 7th with 24 candidates seeking to clinch the seat left vacant by former ODM MP Ken Okoth.
