Kenya Electoral Commission calls for prosecution of its staff that violated the law, promises internal changes

Kenya’s electoral commission says it will change personnel and processes to prepare for a new presidential vote after the Supreme Court nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election.

Chairman Wafula Chebukati says he has invited the director of public prosecutions to prosecute any staffer found to have been involved in electoral malpractice.

The court said the electoral commission committed “illegalities and irregularities” in the Aug. 8 elections. The commission chairman is urging the court to quickly release its full ruling with the details. That ruling is expected within 21 days.

He further promised that challenges will be made to handle the next general election.
