Kenya is in a constitutional crisis, NASA leaders declare


The opposition NASA has warned that the country is in a constitutional crisis.

The alliance told the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to put its house in order before the August 8 polls.

“The country is facing a serious electoral debacle and a constitutional crisis of monstrous proportions. We need to wake up to this new reality,” said NASA National Coordinating Committee Co-Chairman James Orengo.

The warning comes after the commission on Tuesday terminated the tender for the supply, delivery, installation, testing and commissioning, and support of the Kenya Integrated Elections Management Systems (KIEMS).

“The bedrock and bell-wether infrastructure of our elections is anchored on the acquisition and deployment of these systems, as provided under Section 44 of the Elections Act that speaks of the use of technology,” Mr Orengo said.

The senator said that without the establishment of an integrated electronic electoral system, no valid elections can be held.
