Kenya polls were peaceful, transparent, says Former Tanzania President Jakaya Kikwete
The former President of Tanzania now head of the East African Community (EAC) election observation mission in Kenya, has described the August 9 general elections as “peaceful” and “transparent”.
In his Thursday (August 11) address at the Nairobi Serena Hotel, Kikwete said: “Use of technology for voter identification and transmission of results has increased transparency in the election. Challenges with the Kenya Integrated Elections Management (KIEMs) kit, should be addressed, but the mission was pleased generally.”
Despite the minor challenges, Kikwete said that: “Polling agents displayed high levels of competency and professionalism. Poll officials were well trained. The mission commends IEBC for involving young people, specifically young women.”
In his preliminary observer mission report, Kikwete added that campaigns were conducted in a calm and peaceful atmosphere.
