IEBC received 110 complaints from across the country by Wednesday morning and will start hearing and processing them today.
The complaints presented before IEBCâs Disputes Resolution Committee paint a classic picture of what has been described as shambolic primaries by major political parties.
The nominations held Thursday and Friday culminated in violence and destruction of property in some parts of the country, and complaints of nepotism and discrimination.
IEBC committee headed by Commissioner Thomas Letangule sat briefly yesterday at Milimani Law Courts in Nairobi, where they sampled the complaints they have received.
The session was to give the aggrieved parties directions on how to lodge their complaints. Angry aspirants who turned up on short notice expressed a wide range of grievances, some saying they were robbed victory. One aspirant for Makina Ward in Kibera, Ahmed Adan, produced a nomination certificate issued to him by ODM on Friday but claimed the name of the fourth contender Hassan Kadir had been forwarded to IEBC.
A UDF candidate for Kamukunji Mohammed Isaack said he had been nominated unopposed but the certificate was issued to someone else.
