The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has on Monday confirmed that three of its officers are set to be prosecuted over the illegal transfer of voters.
The names of the three officers will be forwarded to the relevant investigative agents for investigation as confirmed by the commission chairman Wafula Chebukati.
Chebukati continued by confirming that over one million voters from Waji, Nyeri, Mandera, Nairobi among others had been transferred thanks to audit results.

In addition to the above, about 4,000 voters are on the verge of being prosecuted if they are found by IEBC guilty of double registration in different polling station. The names of the voters will also be forwarded to the relevant investigative agencies for further determination.
“Individuals who have registered more than once with IDs and passport numbers and ideally I would classify them as crooks. Out of that we have managed to handle 59% of the recorded 4,757 voters,”
“What we are saying is that after the exercise we will forward them to the relevant agencies for further investigations to understand why people are registering more than once with the same documents so that proper charges can be preferred against them.” Said IEBC CEO Hussein Marjan
