Just a day after the BBI Secretariat, led by Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and former MP Deniss Waweru informed Kenyans on Monday President Uhuru Kenyatta and HE Raila Odinga will launch BBI signatures collection on 25th, the Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has released a template form that will be used in the collection of at least 1 million signatures of registered voters to endorse the Buiding Bridges Initiative (BBI). The commission, through its chair Wafula Chebukati has been against the BBI Report’s proposals of reforming the IEBC.
The form produced by the IEBC will be signed by every Kenyan citizen across the country and they will indicate their name, ID/Passport number and the County, Constituency and Ward from which they hail from.
They will also provide their phone number, the name of the polling station where they are registered, email address plus their signature.
“The Commission takes note of your request for guidance as well as approval of your proposed format and provides to you the approved format/template (copy enclosed herewith) that should be used for the collection of signatures. To enable the voter verification process and to ensure completeness of the supporters’ records. all the fields in the said approved format/template should be duly filled as provided,” said IEBC in a letter to the BBI National Secretariat.
