IEBC's latest tweet angers Kenyans

IEBC rubs Kenyans the wrong way

In the tweet, the electoral body listed the number of petitions dismissed by the court, those that had been allowed and the ones still pending on the corridors of justice.

Gloating

Owing to the fact that only 5 petitions have since been allowed by the court while 114 of them dismissed, a section of the public felt that IEBC was gloating over an election well conducted.

Those against the electoral body did not take this patting on the back kindly and were quick to accuse it of being part of election rigging.

IEBC servers

Some expressed concerns on why IEBC seemingly refused to open the servers as instructed by the Supreme Court during the presidential petition.

At the same time, a section of the public questioned the Commission for failing to pay some officials who worked for it during the polls.

Yet others poked holes on the status of investigations of the killing of IEBC ICT Manager Chris Msando, which happened only days to the General Election.

Here are the reactions:

This comes amid declaration by IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati that the elections were conducted in a free and fair manner.

Last week, High Court annulled the win of Wajir Governor Mohammed Abdi on grounds that he did not have a valid undergraduate degree certificate and also that the election was marred by irregularities.
