NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 29 – The Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko has consented to the prosecution of Kethi Kilonzo over her alleged fake voter registration.

Kethi is expected to appear in court next week Tuesday to be charged for alleged fraud and possession of a fake voter’s registration slip.

High Court judge Lydia Achode ordered Kethi to present herself at the Criminal Investigative Department offices on Monday for the preparations of her charges.

Kethi is expected to face charges alongside other Independent Electoral and Boundaries and Commission officials who were allegedly accomplices in the fraud.

Kethi is accused for lying about her voter registration process that led to her getting a voter’s slip.

It emerged that Kethi’s slip showed that she was registered in 2011, more than a year before Biometric Voter Registration kicked off; that she was registered at the NCC Social Hall in Karen but IEBC records show that the slip’s code belongs to the St Mary School in Karen and that it also bears details of a slip that was not in distribution in Nairobi.

Kethi further showed uncertainty when she was asked by the lawyer representing the IEBC, Kimani Muhoro the time that she had registered.

Kethi further confessed to the court that she did not vote in the March 4 General Election despite saying that she had in an interview with a local television station.
