Good morning Kenyans.
The weekend is here after a week of madness in the political scene.
ODM leader Raila Odinga found himself in a tight spot after picking a fight with the IEBC.
The veteran politician was quick to note that the IEBC’s stated cost for the BBI referendum was a misleading one.
According to the Wafula Chebukati led team, the exercise would cost Ksh 14 billion.
Raila on the other hand gave his estimation for the referendum to be Ksh 2 billion.
The electoral body defended itself and pointed out that the cost for this new exercise would be higher, compared to the 2010 referendum that cost Ksh 10 billion.
This brings up the big question, who between Raila and the IEBC is lying to Kenyans?
