DP Ruto on Thursday claimed that close to a million voters had been removed from the IEBC’s voter register.

Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria has called upon Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga to speak up after claims of voters disappearing from the IEBC’s voter register.

At a press briefing on Friday, June 3, the presidential hopeful called upon other aspirants in the upcoming polls to act on the matter.

“I now call upon my competitor Raila Odinga to speak about it. William Ruto spoke about it yesterday but I want him to speak with clarity. I want other candidates to speak about it,” he stated.

Wa Iria said that he was ready to meet with international observers whom he called upon to audit the electoral agency.

“I want to meet them and I will them the truth. Even how my signatures were sold. I will give them the whole story,” Wa Iria added.

His remarks come after he said that the IEBC did not have a voter register to validate signatures of voters. He labelled the Bomas of Kenya, where the validation was being done, as a scene of crime.

Meanwhile, Ruto on Thursday sensationally claimed that close to a million voters had been removed from IEBC’s voter register.

“We expect that everybody who is concerned including EU to try and get as much detail as possible both from the electoral commission and these public officials on what all this is all about and how did close to a million names disappear from the register,” the DP said.

However, IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati said that no names had been removed from the voter register.

He said that the register was undergoing an audit and that the report of the audit would be made public before the register is gazetted on June 9.
