"The forms are similar to what you received at the polling stations and confirmed by your agents at the constituency tallying centres. We advise that agents in this exercise cannot proceed in the manner we are proceeding as if we are doing a forensic audit," he said.
The chair further stated that if the agents notice any errors or want to raise an issue, they should talk to him and not the tallying officers.
“Compare the forms issued, and bring errors to the attention of the commission. Don’t interrogate the ROs and slow down the process,” said Chebukati while addressing media on Friday, August 12.
In a bid to fasten the process, Chebukati announced an addition of more desks at Bomas to bring total of verification desks to seven.
With 130 constituencies remaining, the chair said that each desk will from now on take maximum of 15 minutes per constituency returning officer.
In his address, he also announced verified results from four more constituencies (Ndia, Gatundu South, Yatta, and Ainabkoi) bringing total to 10 constituencies.
