Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairman Wafula Chebukati has rubbished claims that there is a plot to rig the August elections.
Speaking on Thursday, Chebukati accused some politicians of spreading propaganda and asked Kenyans not to allow themselves to be deceived.
“I want to confirm that IEBC is an independent institution. We are not directed by any individual, constitution or authority. We are answerable only to the constitution,” he said.
He said that IEBC is an independent institution and not influenced by any institutions.
“IEBC has prepared for these elections more than ever before. We will ensure that we have a transparent process; we are going to give Kenyans free, fair and credible elections. That is our commitment to the country,” he said.
“We are not directed by any individual, constitution or authority; we are answerable only to the constitution,” he said.
This comes after claims by Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance affiliated politicians claimed that a plot had been hatched between the IEBC and the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, to rig in their favour.
