Don’t in­ter­fere with IEBC, Ababu urges politi­cians

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Western -

Bu­dalang’i MP Ababu Namwamba has urged politi­cians to stop med­dling in the af­fairs of the In­de­pen­dent Elec­toral and Bound­aries Com­mis­sion, for it to do its work prop­erly.

Speak­ing to the Star in his Magoye res­i­dence on Mon­day, he said Kenyans ex­pect the IEBC to have am­ple time to pre­pare it­self for the elec­tions. Namwamba said cit­i­zens ex­pect a free and fair elec­tion.

He crit­i­cised the panel formed to se­lect new IEBC com­mis­sion­ers for re-ad­ver­tis­ing the chair­per­son po­si­tion. Mean­while, the Labour Party of Kenya leader con­demned the dis­rup­tion of Cord leader Raila Odinga’s rally at Shibale in Mu­mias, Kakamega county, last Fri­day. He urged politi­cians not to in­cite peo­ple.
