The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) have stated that they need 241 million shillings for it to conduct the verification of signatures successfully which includes the training of staff members.
The BBI Secretariat however think that this figure is exaggerated.
The IEBC CEO Marjan Hussein Marjan claims that he has written to the treasury about the money needed but they have not responded yet.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chair Wafula Chebukati said that they will not commence the verification of signatures until they receive funds.
The ThirdWay alliance secretary Fredrick Okango claimed that the Commission could only verify the details of registered voters.
“What the IEBC needs is not really a lot of money. They already have the staff and the infrastructure and the little extra they need is just to hire a few individual staff. So it should not be a problem,” Kieni MP Kanini Kega said.
