ODM says IEBC out to pun­ish Cord, reads mal­ice in elec­tion ma­te­rial pro­cure­ment

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics | General -

Raila Odinga’s ODM has said out­go­ing elec­toral com­mis­sion mem­bers are deter­mined to pun­ish Cord lead­ers by en­sur­ing they lose against Jubilee’s Uhuru Keny­atta in the elec­tions.

Chair­man John Mbadi said the de­ter­mi­na­tion by Isaack Has­san in the In­de­pen­dent Elec­toral and Bound­aries Com­mis­sion to pro­cure the elec­tion ma­te­ri­als be­fore they leave of­fice is a clear man­i­fes­ta­tion that a sin­is­ter mo­tive is in the off­ing. “We have in­for­ma­tion that they are talk­ing with some top Jubilee fig­ures to pun­ish Cord. How they will do it is ev­ery­one’s guess,” Mbadi said.

But com­mis­sion CEO Ezra Chiloba said the ear­li­est the new com­mis­sion will be in of­fice is Jan­uary 2017 and by then, time will be lim­ited. “What we are do­ing is within the law and Kenyans should un­der­stand we don’t have enough time to pre­pare,” he said.
