Activists Demand Prosecution of IEBC Officials Over Bungled Poll

By Jemimah Mueni

Nairobi — Civil society organisations have served the Director of Public Prosecutions with a petition calling for the prosecution of Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission officials accused of bungling last month’s presidential election.

The protesters under the Kura Yangu Sauti Yangu initiative, led by the International Commission of Jurists’ Njonjo Mue, first staged a demonstration to the IEBC offices at Anniversary Towers on Wednesday where they handed a petition to Commissioner Roselyn Akombe, urging affected officials to quit.

“We present the petition before you with regards to necessity to investigate and prosecute election officials who undertook criminal activities that led to the nullification of the presidential election,” said Mue.

At the DPP’s office, their petition was received by the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Dorcas Oduor who assured them that necessary action will be taken on those found culpable.

“We accept this petition we shall study it and we shall take the necessary action, I want to assure you that the Office of the Public Prosecution is always concerned about the offences being committed and that’s why we are in touch with the investigative agencies so that we get concrete evidence,” said Oduor.
