KPMG has been engaged by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to audit the Register of Voters as required by Section 8A of the Election Laws (Amendment) Act No. 36 of 2016.
The audit is conducted for purposes of:
(i) Verifying the accuracy of the Register;
(ii) Recommending mechanisms of enhancing the accuracy of the Register;
(iii) Updating the Register.
KPMG Kenya is pleased to announce that we have already commenced the audit of the Register of Voters in accordance with our Technical Proposal and contract with IEBC.
The audit of the Register of Voters is first and foremost about securing the sovereign power that the people of Kenya have under the Constitution. This audit is intended to ensure that no voter is disenfranchised on account of inaccuracies in the Register. In addition, the audit is intended to ensure that a voter's sovereign power is not diluted or undermined by the existence of ineligible voters in the Register, duplications, or other errors that could undermine the principle of universal suffrage - one man one vote; one woman one vote.
