IEBC wants ODPP to investigate the Jacaranda grounds chaos

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has presented an application to the office of the director of public prosecution, to look into the chaos, that was witnessed during the Kenya Kwanza rally at Jacaranda grounds on Sunday.

This after the Kenya Kwanza team encountered hostile youths in Embakasi who stoned their vehicles in chaos that left several injured.

In the statement, the commission has condemned the incident that resulted in scores of injuries to supporters and damaged  property.

Chairperson Wafula Chebukati, reiterated need for electorates to observe electoral code of conduct, adding that those found guilty of the scuffle shall be brought to book.

In ordinary circumstances, IEBC says it would have promptly investigated and summoned the suspected perpetrators of the heinous violence were it not for judicial orders declaring the Electoral Code of Conduct Enforcement Committee unconstitutional, and thereby withdrawing from the Commission the constitutional and statutory power to enforce the said Code.

The Commission has in the meantime called on all candidates and Political Parties to conduct peaceful campaigns and adhere to their campaign schedules as submitted to the Returning Officers.
