Reading Time: 1 minute

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has announced that Kakamega and Mombasa Governor elections will take place on August 29, 2022.

The elections in the two counties were postponed following errors on the ballot papers. The names of the candidates vying for the seat were found to be incorrect.

The decision was made following a private meeting between Chebukati and the IEBC commissioners at Bomas of Kenya, Nairobi.

"These elections must occur as soon as possible because we need to move on and have finality," said Chebukati.

Elections will also be held in six other areas where voting had been postponed.

They include Kitui Rural Constituency in Kitui County, Kacheliba Constituency in West Pokot County, Pokot South Constituency in West Pokot County and Rongai Constituency (Nakuru County).

The candidates running for the positions have been allowed to campaign for up to 48 hours before the election.
