The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials yesterday supervised the offloading of 183 pallets of ballot papers (101 tonnes) destined for Thursday’s presidential election.
This particular consignment is in addition to the 43 pallets that arrived in the country on Saturday evening, which, according to IEBC Warehouse and Logistics manager, Bernard Ochari have already been dispatched to 10 far-flung counties.
Marsabit and Garissa are some of them. The Commission is expecting a similar consignment of 101 tonnes of ballot papers today. The second batch of the ballot papers arrived last evening aboard the Etihad Cargo plane and were taken to the national warehouse on Likoni Road, Industrial Area.
The final batch of the ballot papers will arrive in the country at 10 this morning. According to Ochari, the Commission might dispatch the ballots to their destinations early today.
