Kepsa calls for speedy resolution of IEBC standoff

The Kenya Private Sector Alliance (Kepsa) has appealed to the Joint parliamentary committee formed to break the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) impasse to fast tract their mandate as tension surrounding the matter is still rife.

While lauding the formation of the committee, Kepsa Chief executive Carol Kariuki said that investors are still concerned about the security of their investments.

“Investors are still concerned about the future of their investments and hence the need for the joint committee to treat the matter as an urgent issue,” said Kariuki.

Her appeal comes days before a motion for the formation of the joint House Select Committee to look into allegations against the IEBC is tabled in the floor of the House tomorrow to recommend legal mechanisms for the vacation of office of the current commissioners in accordance with the Constitution.

Kariuki revealed that the business community lost close to Sh80 million every Monday that the opposition held their demonstrations against the electoral body demanding for its reforms and eviction of the commissioners.

The investors further appealed to the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) and the Inspector General of Police to apprehend all hate mongers to avert a chaotic pre- election year.

“We are also charging the NCIC and Inspector General to tame and arrest all hate mongers in order to avert a chaotic pre- election year,” added Ms Kariuki.
