IEBC disappoints RAILA only 4 days to polls-See how its system failed to transmit results from 47 counties

Thursday August 3, 2017-The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) carried out simulation on its Result Transmission System (RTS) yesterday.

However, the IEBC failed to deliver on its pledge to transmit results from 47 selected polling stations in the 47 counties, and instead settled on the three.

The failure by the IEBC to deliver on its promises has left Kenyans, especially the Opposition, wondering whether the commission would be able to deliver free and fair elections as it has promised and whether the technology would fail again like was the case in 2013.

Nevertheless, at the end of the exercise, the IEBC officials exuded confidence that the Kenya Integrated Elections Management Systems (KIEMS) was foolproof.

“Our technical team has worked on this technology for months. It is foolproof and can only suffer a hitch through human intervention," said Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba.

 "We will have no back end. The media will get the API-public portal link tomorrow (today) and can gradually tabulate and analyse the results as they trickle in,” he added.
