“Go to hqs”

On the night I sat in the ECK tallying center at Kipkeikei High School for the results of Cherangany Constituency (December 27), the Returning Officer Mr. Seita said each aspirant would have a copy of the results in no more than 48 hours after they are announced.

Three weeks-plus later and there is apparently no copy to be had.

I was on phone with Mr. Seita the other day, and he said the Trans-Nzoia District ECK Co-ordinator had everything and I could get copies of the official tally sheet from him.

He added that his contract with the ECK was now over, and that the ECK man in Trans-Nzoia would sort me out.

Today I sent an agent of mine to get a copy of the tally sheet from the ECK man in Trans-Nzoia.

The agent got nowhere with him, and finally put me on phone to do the talking myself.

Mr. Bitok would have me believe that his office has no records of what took place in Cherangany, and that if I really want them I should go to Anniversary Towers and get them from the ECK head office.

Why would the ECK want to be so centralized at this time?
