Large Number of Spoilt Votes Worry AU Observers in Kenya

Former South African president, Thabo Mbeki, who heads the African Union Elections Observer Mission in Kenya states that many voters did know the parameters to use when marking the ballot paper resulting in mistakes. Stringent rules by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission also contributed to the number of rejected votes. He has however commended the IEBC for conducting the polls in a free, fair and peaceful manner.
