The IEBC has called off gubernatorial elections in Kakamega and Mombasa counties after discrepancies and errors were noticed in photos and names of candidates.
The electoral commission has also suspended elections for Members of the National Assembly (MP) in Pokot South and Kacheliba constituencies for the same reason.
“Ballot papers for the following elective positions were noted to have errors. The ballot papers for Kakamega County governor positions and Mombasa County have wrong gubernatorial candidate pictures and the details printed on them. Positions for members of the National Assembly in Pokot South and three in Kachiriba also have wrong gubernatorial candidate pictures and the details printed on them,” IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati announced.
The date for the suspended elections will be announced later.
“As a result, elections for their respective positions have been suspended to a later date, which shall be announced through a gazette notice,” he said.
