IEBC is a creature of the constitution and the constitution is created by the people. But it has been a source of all the conflicts that KENYANS have had after every ELECTIONEERING period. For example.
IEBC failed in its duty in 2010 to provide equity in representation and this time round the people are giving their ‘child’ clear instructions what to do:
IEBC FAILED to make sure they save the 290 constituencies despite the obvious gerrymandering they did after the passage of the 2010 constitution.
IEBC FAILED to redraw the constituency boundaries and create equity of representation of constituencies within the 47 counties.
In his submissions to the BBI TASKFORCE, H.E. MusaliaMudavadi insisted that the @IEBCKenya NEEDED to be the main area of focus as we take a radical surgery of the 2010 document via BBI.
KENYANS fight because the IEBC is a Tower of Babel, a Citadel of Commotion, a Crescendo of Cacophony, a Scene of Crime. BBI needed to put it’s foot down strongly and overhaul the IEBC.
To underscore this, the popular POLITICAL critic show the #NewsGang that appears on citizen Tv had the presentor Linus Kaikai echoing the words of Musalia Mudavadi at BOMAS 2 when he said that @IEBCKenya should have been the single most important issue and agenda of the BBI TASKFORCE.
The handshake should have been ALL about fixing elections by fixing the electoral body. Over to you our legislators. What is your take on this?
