A Nairobi court has ordered Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission(IEBC) to use a manual register to identify voters in the August polls.

Justice Mugure Thande quashed the letter that IEBC wrote to Azimio, saying they will only use KIEMs kits to identify voters.

The court has found that the impugned decision of the commission to abandon the printed register violates the clear provisions of the constitution which provides that where an electronic voter identification device fails then such voter would be identified using a printed register.
