Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati says that there are five members of the electoral body under investigation.
In a joint interview on Wednesday, July 13, Chebukati was put to task to explain how Deputy President William Ruto knew that close to one million voters has been transferred.
The IEBC chairman denied the claims saying only 5,000 voters had been transferred.
However, Chebukati mentioned that five officers from IEBC were under investigation and their report has been forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
"The information stated by William Ruto that 1M voters were transferred from one region to another is incorrect, the transfer was about 5,000 voters.
"There are five people who have been found wanting and there is a report with the DPP. When the DPP concludes the investigation and prosecutes them, then we shall know the details," he stated.
Chebukati added that the issue of transfer of voters was raised by IEBC because we noticed it during the verification process and not because of Ruto's claims.
The IEBC chair said that the electoral body was ready to deliver to Kenyans free, fair, and credible elections.
"We have been working on this election since 2018; we did post-election evaluation report, made recommendations for legal reforms, we have done strategic plan," Chebukati told the press.
