Kenya’s Independent Electoral Commission-IEC says, an ongoing audit of its voters’ roll has found the names of nearly 250,000 deceased voters on the register.

Nearly half a million more voters were found to have duplicate records and more than 226,000 people were registered using documents that do not belong to them.

IEC’s chairman Wafula Chebukati said, because of the implementation of the preliminary audit findings, the commission would delay certifying the final register for publication.

The commission said earlier that it would publish the register of voters on or before today, but has pushed that to the 20th of this month.
