IEBC has released approved BBI signatures for public inspection. On Thursday, the Commission released the signatures with the names of the people who signed, their counties, their electoral districts and polling stations.

The process enables electors to ensure that their data have not been used without their permission.

Anyone who has been captured as a supporter without consent can report to the commission by writing to the AG commission secretary/CEO indicating their objections

Chairman Wafula Chebukati

A properly signed letter of complaint bearing the name, ID and contact phone number should be either scanned and forwarded to RPIT@iebc.or.ke or dropped by Monday 25 January at the IEBC offices.

In order to ensure that the job is accomplished in a fortnight, 400 clerks were employed to burn the candle at both ends.

Before their orientation and preparation, the IEBC BBI clerks were sworn in and took the oath of secrecy on December 30 last year.

They were paid Sh1,200 per day; altogether they will be paid Sh480,000 per day.

Junet Accuses Chebukati

They sorted, scrutinized, verified and authenticated the list of registered voters backing the BBI referendum bill.

Last week, the electoral agency dismissed claims it was sabotaging the verification of signatures to back the proposed Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020.

IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati termed the sentiments by Suna East MP Junet Mohamed – a strong Raila ally – as completely false and unfortunate.

Junet, who is BBI secretariat co-chairman, said they suspected the delay was deliberate.

The lawmaker termed it an attempt by the commission to scuttle the process, saying the grumbles by the commission over cash were part of the alleged scheme.

IEBC, in its January 8 update on the verification, said they had captured 544,624 records – being above 50 per cent of the required one million signatures.
