Elections in Kenya have become a high stakes affair, it is a do or die hence the credibility and preparedness of the electoral commission have been put to test. The commission has been dealing with issues regarding cleaning of the voters register to ensure integrity of the process. American leading audit firm, KMPG had carried out the audit of the voters register and found that close to one million Kenyans who have since passed on are still on the register hence the need for clean-up. The credibility of IEBC have also been brought into limelight following the complaint by the opposition regarding the ballot printing tender


University of Nairobi Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi, noted that Nation Leadership Forum, should result in positive dialogue and actions that will enhance the credibility of the electoral process. Prof. Mbithi was represented by Prof. Stephen Kiama, Principal, College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences.

Azzure Kenya Managing Director Sumayya Hassan-Athman, who was one of the panelists observed that the business community are cutting back on their operations, retrenching employees due to the fear of the forth-coming elections.  She urged the commission to actively engage all stakeholders and inspire confidence that there will be peaceful elections come August 2017.
