IEBC Says It Did Not Verify Okoa Kenya Signatures
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has admitted to not verifying any of Cord’s Okoa Kenya signatures saying any mark was accepted as “an intention or consent by a petitioner”.
The commission’s Communications manager Tabitha Mutemi explained that some entries had signatures but no ID or passport numbers while others only had names.
In a statement sent to newsrooms Mutemi says that the records that were rejected were those that were not found in the voters register.
She says IEBC did not reject any signature because of its structure or formation.
