More IEBC Funding

On 10th December 2020, the Commission received Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020 and supporters signatures which were 4.4 million from the promoters of the initiative.

IEBC then prepared a budget amounting to Ksh 241 million which was premised on providing full accommodation in one site to all verification personnel.

The accommodation according to IEBC would prevent exposure of the personnel to Covid-19 due to daily commuting using public transport and compliance to curfew restrictions.

In another scenario, IEBC provided another budget which amounted to Ksh 93 million; this was the budget that the National Treasury approved.

This budget was mainly based on non-residential verification clerks.
