One of the witnesses of the Unity Party (UP) who testified at today’s hearing at the National Elections Commission, Jeff Nebo who is also an IT expert in his testimony brought the electoral commission to public ridicule when he demonstrated how the October 10, 2017 elections were marred with massive irregularities.

Speaking further, Mr. Nebo noted that there were several frauds made during the elections with registration cards being duplicated, and further disclosed that the online number system given to political parties were difference from that NEC had in its possession.

Observers who turned out at the Commission to witness the hearing were all baffled and confused, pondering over this revelation by Mr. Nebo.

For her part, the former Chairman of NEC, Cllr. Frances Johnson Allison said the 2005 elections and the  2017 were different, because this particular process was singlehandedly taken care of, noting that during the 2005 international partners found part of the process.

The legal counsel of the Commission, Cllr. Alexander Zoe who represented the Chairman of the Commission at the hearing appeared worried and disappointed.
