IEBC explains where William Ruto’s 1M votes disappeared to

2 mins read

Last week on Thursday Deputy President William Ruto while meeting envoys from the Europen Union sensationally claimed the Independent Electoral Boundary Commission (IEBC) had deleted over one million votes in his strongholds from the voter’s roll, as part of a wider scheme to rig the elections in favor of Raila Odinga.

“We expect that everybody who is concerned including EU to try and get as much detail as possible both from the electoral commission and these public officials on what all this is all about and how did close to a million names disappear from the register. And many of those names are from what we consider our stronghold. It is a clear attempt to try some monkey games, “ William Ruto said at the breakfast meeting in Karen.

On Wednesday, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati in a statement disclosed after an audit report by KPMG, they expunged 1.1M votes from the register and pushed the official publishing of the voter’s register from June 9th to June 20th.

The audit report revealed 246,465 deceased voters, 481,711 duplicate records, and 226,143 voters registered with IDs that do not validly belong to them. Also, the KPMG audit revealed that 164,269 people were registered with voter records with invalid identification documents (IDs and Passports).

“Due to the implementation of these preliminary audit findings on the register, the commission has decided to address the findings prior to certifying the register for publication on or before June 20, 2022. The commission is scheduled to receive the final audit report by KPMG by June 16, 2022 and there will be a stakeholder engagement on the final registering of voters on June 17, 2022,”  Wafula Chebukati said.
