Kenya’s IEBC Uncovers 250,000 Dead Kenyans in Election Register

Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) announced Wednesday that 246,465 dead voters were found on its register for the Aug. 9 general elections.

This was among several anomalies the Commission found, forcing it to postpone the publishing of the voter’s register Wednesday.

The electoral body also found 226,143 voters were registered with National Identity cards that do not belong to them and 481,711 people had duplicate records.

Also, 164,269 were found to have registered with invalid identification documents (IDs and passports) the Commission said have to be addressed before certification and publishing of the register.

Kenya’s Commission chair, Wafula Chebukati said that because of the implementation of the preliminary audit findings “the Commission has decided to address the findings prior to certifying the register for publication on, or before June 20.”
