‘It’s not possible to conduct free

fair and credible elections on 26th. ‘ ICJ Kenya

Elections KenyaNAIROBI, 19 OCTOBER 2017 ICJ Kenya has written to President Uhuru Kenyatta and his main opponent the Rt. Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga on the stand-off around the proposed fresh presidential election to be held on the 26th of October 2017.

In the letter ICJ Kenya states that the 26th of October 2017 is slowly yet surely approaching yet the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has re-stated that it is not ready to hold the election on this date. Paradoxically even as it asserts this, Commissioner Dr.Roselyn Akombe has not only resigned from office but fled the country fearing for her life. Her family too had earlier fled the country following incessant threats which have not been investigated. Dr. Akombe’s resignation letter casts doubt on the ability of the IEBC to hold a free, fair and credible election next week.
