Raila denies IEBC cost of Ksh 14B to conduct a referendum

Former Prime Minister has denied allegations by the Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission (IEBC) that the cost of conducting a referendum is more than Ksh 14 billion.

In a statement issued by the ODM leader, he points out the need to overhaul the whole commission and streamlined due to the figures it issued.

He continues by revealing that elections in the country have been the source of many to rip off the country when they should focus on providing credible results.

According to the former PM such acts should not be allowed to continue especially with the upcoming referendum that is meant to unite the country and put to an end the culture of theft in public offices.

Revelations by the Hon. Raila is that the cost per voter to hold a referendum should be between 1-2 dollars and Kenya should not be an exception as it has a history of holding elections.

The ODM leader points out the adequate number of resources that the country has to hold affordable elections something that Kenyans are calling for.

It is in the effect that the former PM has hinted at plans to form a team that will advise IEBC on how to hold a cost-effective referendum.
