The three were arrested for  trying to alter results of the just concluded election at a centre in Nairobi. Sixteen ballot boxes with presidential election results were allegedly destroyed and materials altered in the incident on Saturday.

The officers demanded a court order to allow them in but the officials said they were IEBC officials and did not require such orders. It took the intervention of members of the public to flush out the two officials who had broken into the ballot boxes and were then busy writing new materials, witnesses said.

The two were later arrested and detained by DCI officials who arrived at the scene. They are likely to be charged in court Monday.

This comes in the wake of revelation that 24 IEBC officials are among 85 individuals facing prosecution over election-related offences.
