SDA church leaders write to IEBC over planned election in Nyanza on the SABBATH DAY.

Friday, 27 October 2017- The Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church has called on the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to postpone the repeat presidential poll that was pushed to Saturday. 

Wafula Chebukati, IEBC chair, announced that voting will be repeated in four counties in Nyanza where voting failed to take place on Thursday.


Through chair Samuel Makori, the church that worships on Sabbath (Saturday) wants IEBC to consider another date for the repeat election as worshippers will be denied a chance to vote if election goes on as planned.

 “We wish to bring to your attention that this date falls on Saturday which is a day of worship to over three million Adventists in Kenya. This will deny them their constitutional right to vote. While we support your move to give the Kenyans who did not vote today another chance, we request you to do it on another day other Saturday,” the letter read in part.
 
However, Chebukati is adamant that the commission must work within the constitutional timelines for the announcement of the winner.

  1. Heavenly Father,

    We commit uhuruto and this regime. May you urgently deal with them for all the killing of the citizen of the republic of Kenya as you did during the old testament by them forcefully forcing them selves over the citizens of Kenya.

    Lord Jesus, we forgive them (uhuruto and those doing eveil under their directive to kill Kenyans not sharing the dreams and aspiration). Jesus, times as this we committee our nation and protection unto your hands and deliver our nation from uhuruto and his regime. May it be boldly done so that the whole world know that you live and authority come from you and not from Lucifer and wicked humans.

    We claim all this in Jesus Name with praises to GOD and may GOD be clarified in Jesus Name we pray and believe. Amen and Amen.

  2. What foolish reasoning by frustrated worn out principals...of infomous goldenberg public coffer rip off
    Fact is that UHURURUTO had worn 8th August poll squarely since all freely trooped to poll station without threats....unlike repeat on 26th October...

    Drop in votes shows Uhuru did not win August polls - Mudavadi
    Oct. 28, 2017, 12:00 am

    National Resistance Movement leaders yesterday said the drop in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s votes from 8.3 million in the nullified August poll has exposed the IEBC’s election fraud.

    ANC leader and opposition presidential chief campaigner Musalia Mudavadi lauded NASA supporters for boycotting the Thursday election and “exposing the IEBC by proving Uhuru did not win”.

    Mudavadi said the low voter turnout, standing at about six million, is making it difficult for Uhuru to attain the 8.3 million votes he got to win against his archrival Raila Odinga.

    In August, the turnout stood at 14 million out of 19 million registered voters. Raila got 6.7 million votes.

    “The citizens have finally opened the servers that the IEBC refused to open. The boycott has shown that the so-called numbers and percentages that Jubilee and Uhuru Kenyatta have been talking about were all along fraudulent,” Mudavadi said.

    He spoke in Nairobi on Friday. Mudavadi was accompanied by Siaya Senator James Orengo and 15 opposition lawmakers.


    He said, “Uhuru lost the August election and has again lost this sham one in which he was basically running against himself.”

    Raila withdrew from the repeat presidential polls, leaving Uhuru with six other candidates after the IEBC failed to meet his 12-point electoral reforms demands for a credible election.

    Mudavadi told the IEBC and Jubilee to stop forcing residents in the four Nyanza counties of Homa Bay, Kisumu, Migori and Siaya to participate in the fresh polls on Saturday. The polls were postponed due to insecurity and resistance from voters. “We are asking the IEBC to call off the forced polls. The motive is clearly wicked...” Mudavadi said.
