IEBC Officials Stop Esther Passaris From Voting After Kiems Kit Fails To Recognise Her

Nairobi Woman Rep Esther Passaris is crying foul after she failed to cast her vote because of technical issues on the part of IEBC.

IEBC has been experiencing technical issues with the kiems kit which are used at the polling stations to identify voters before they can be allowed to cast their votes.

A handful of prominent politicians including UDA running mate Rigathi Gachagua experienced issues with kiems kits. 

Speaking at the Old Kibera Primary school while accompanying Raila Odinga and his spouse Ida Odinga to cast their votes, Esther Passaris lamented that she had cast her vote because kiems kit failed to identify her.

The incumbent Nairobi Women Rep complained that IEBC was not using manual register at her polling station.

She called on the electoral body to use manual register where kiems kits fail to identify voters.

“Nimekuja kusindikiza Baba na Mama First lady lakini pale nimetoka mimi mwenyewe sijapiga kura kwa sababu kiem kits haikufanya kazi na mbaka sahi hawajaleta replacement na hawataki kutumia manual register. So hapo kuna shida, IEBC pale kiems kits hazifanyi kazi mupeane manual register,” said Esther Passaris.

“Supporters wetu wengi hawajavote ju kiems kits zimefail,” she added.
