  • Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission CEO Ezra Chiloba stated that the chances of rigging elections this year are minimal, with the commission having acquired a new system 3 months ago.
  • Preparations for the August 8th elections are also being finalised, IEBC having simulated to Kenyans how their the KIEMS kit will work.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has announced that all political campaigns will end on 5th August 2017, 48 hours to the General election.

The IEBC has also assured Kenyans of shorter queues in polling stations since the number of polling stations countrywide has been increased from 24,563 to 40,883.
