The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision (IEBC) has postponed all scheduled by-elections over the new coronavirus.

The by-elections affected by the postponement are Dabado ward in Kilifi, Kisumu North ward, Kahawa Wendani in Kiambu and Wundanyi/Mbale ward in Taita Taveta.

In a press statement sent out to media houses, the IEBC explained that conducting party nominations, campaigns and the poll itself would involve human contact and thereby expose the public to the dangers of contracting the new coronavirus.
