The Kenya Electoral Commission has conducted a study that shows that Kenya’s elections are the second most expensive in the world.
In line with this resolution and the amount shown by Wafula Chebukati, Kenya was spending a lot of money to hold elections, which would later be described as fair.
Wafula Chebukati, who spoke at a media briefing in Kenya, said the IEBC needed $ 40.917 billion to run the 2022 elections effectively.
The IEBC chief described the 26 billion allocated for election services as “extremely low”.
ELOG said this amount is too high for the average taxpayer in the country. They are demanding the passing of a law that will regulate election budgets.
The organization accuses the government of failing to implement a bill introduced in 2013, aimed at regulating election budgets. He is now urging her to get a performance law that will simplify the upcoming elections organized in a cost-effective and non-corrupt manner.
