“There’s nothing factual about it as far as I’m concerned. We have our ears in the ground and people on social media who have been monitoring what happened.

“It’s divided into the pool of experts who will investigate that,” Cherera confirmed.

In addition, the commissioner called on the public to ignore all information about the upcoming poll – except information made available during IEBC’s daily media reviews or shared on official social media handles.
