DPP Hajji wants voter transfers in Wajir, Garissa investigated

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has written to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to investigate claims of irregular transfer of voters in parts of Wajir and Garissa counties.

According to the letter to EACC CEO Twalib Mbarak, Haji says the voters were transferred to Eldas Constituency in Wajir County and Balambala Constituency in Garissa County by five officials from the commission.

The officials have since been identified as Adan Salah (former ICT Officer for Wajir now in Garissa), Issack Muhumed (from Returning Officer for Eldas now in Ijara), Abdullahi Musa Mohammed (from RO for Balambala now in Wajir North).

The others were Mohammed Maow Abdi (former Deputy RO for Balambala) and Ali Noor Hussein (RO for Balambala Constituency).

Haji said the alleged registration and transfers of voters to Eldas Constituency in Wajir County and the Balambala Constituency in Garissa County by the aforementioned IEBC staff is contrary to Sections 3 and 6 of the Election Offences Act, 2016.
