Giving assurance that the data capture and verification process is still going on as planned. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has published the verified signatures for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) process, for public scrutiny.
IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati in a statement issued on Thursday says the commission published the signatures with names of people who signed, together with their counties, constituencies, and polling stations. He said,
” In preparation of an interim report, the Commission undertook data cleaning exercise by removing incomplete records (missing signature, ID numbers, and names), duplicates, and those not in the Register of Voters.
Further, the Commission has uploaded a list of verified supporters on its website to enable them to check and confirm their details.” According to Chebukati, the move will allow voters to verify that their details have not been used without their consent.
“Anyone who has been captured as a supporter without their consent can report to the Commission by writing to the Ag. Commission Secretary/CEO indicating their objections.
Below is the verified list of Supporters of the Building Bridges Initiative:
The duly signed objection letter containing Name, ID number, and contact telephone number should either be scanned and emailed to RPIT@iebc.or.ke or dropped at the IEBC offices, Anniversary Towers, 7th Floor, University Way, latest by 5:00pm on Monday 25th January 2021.” He added
Last month 400 clerks were hired to sort, scrutinise, verify and authenticate the list of registered voters who are in support of the proposed Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill, 2020.
“Should any supporter miss their name in the interim list then it is still at the verification stage. A full list of all verified supporters shall be published at the end of the exercise.” The data capture of the hardcopy information commenced on Thursday 31st December 2020.
