Some Kenyans who aren’t satisfied with the electoral system have taken it to the next level by asking that their names be removed from the registers of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
On Wednesday, September 15th, IEBC officials stated that they had received deregistration requests from a number of voters.
The Commission said it will respond to their requests within two weeks, but did not specify how many people had requested to be deregistered.
Applicants complained that the August 9 poll was conducted in secret by the IEBC, which was a major point of contention.
“They asked me why I want to exit and I gave them my reasons because they are not transparent yet they are using our taxes, it is better we get ourselves out. We are being liede to.
“The process is that you right a letter to the CEO of IEBC (Hussein Marjan) and attach a copy of your Identification card and an acknowledgement slip,” Nyaochi, a disgruntled voters told KTN.
