The information of one million was not correct…If the information is not correct then why should we worry about it?IEBC Chairman – Wafula Chebukati
Above are the remarks of IEBC boss Wafula Chebukati, who was at the time, making a statement about the Ruto allegation that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission had deleted over 1 million UDA voter names from the IEBC register.
Wafula Chebukati Reaffirms IEBC credibility
Mr. Wafula reaffirmed that no names were deleted and all that was done was correction of wrong voter transfer information, which was done in accordance with the constitution of Kenya.
He continued by saying that he did not know how the DP got information that the IEBC registers had been modified. He said that he himself did not have any information about deletion of voters and nothing close to that happened.
How did it start?
Back in 2nd June this year, DP William Ruto held a meeting with several UK officials, where he explained that his opponents, Raila Odinga’ and Uhuru Kenyatta, were out to conduct an unfair polling process. He said that his votes will be rigged and that over 1 million registered UDA voters had been deleted from the IEBC database.
From that time onwards, Kenya Kwanza supporters have been convinced that the opposing party is planning to rig the election.
It is for this reason that Mr. Chebukati made a media address stating that he had no idea how Ruto came to conclude that his voters were mysteriously deleted.
