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.
