KILIFI county commissioner Erastus Ekidor has directed the Kilifi North IEBC constituency election coordinator Hassan Mwakulonda to investigate claims that people from other provinces are being ferried to register as voters in Kilifi.
Ekidor said the claims cannot be taken lightly and asked the coordinator and the provincial administration officers to conduct a thorough investigation to establish the truth.
Addressing the press at the Kilifi county commissioner's office, nominated councillor Safari Kilumo claimed that people from Central Province are being ferried by buses to Kilifi town and later dispersed to various registration centres.
The claims which were brought to the attention of the administrator and IEBC officials by Sokoni ward residents and aspirants from the area indicated that people are being ferried from Central Province and Mpeketoni to come and register in Kilifi North constituency.
"Some have been going to Kiwandani and Kibaoni registration centers. We want our people to elect their preferred leaders and not people from other areas to come and elect leaders for us," said Kilumo.
