Kura Yangu Sauti Yangu statement on the changes on the electoral laws

Kura Yangu Sauti Yangu is greatly concerned with this week’s events in the National Assembly regarding electoral laws specifically the amendments to the Elections Law
(Amendment) Act of 2016. The unilateral passing of the amendments to the aforementioned Act by Jubilee parliamentarians is worrying and contravenes the spirit of national dialogue which gave birth to the changes to this Act. Of major concern is the introduction of a complimentary mechanism to be used for voter identification and result transmission if technologies deployed during the 2017 general elections fail. We recall that the electoral technologies were introduced to curb voter fraud and other electoral malfeasance that had been witnessed during the previous elections; but importantly the said electoral technologies were meant to guarantee transparency, accountability and credibility
