Makueni senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior has called on the opposition to seek alternative means in their quest to streamline the national voters register.
The senate legal committee member urged the opposition to withdraw their legal suit against the voter registration audit exercise warning delay in the process would prevent the cleaning of the voters register something that might cost them heavily.
Weeks after the CORD coalition filed a legal suit that saw the High court block a tender awarded to the KPMG audit firm (Klynveld Peat Marwick and Goerdeler ) in auditing of the country’s voter register, Mutula Kilonzo Jr. warned that delay in the process would prevent the cleaning of the voters register fanning electoral malpractices that might later come to haunt the opposition.
It was expected that the firm which was picked from 12 other audit companies and awarded the tender by IEBC would comb through the 15.85 million listed voters register tabling the report to Parliament on February 1 with the IEBC expected to implement the audit’s recommendations by February 17 something that has never taken off.
