The Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission [IEBC] will tomorrow oversee the elections of Kenya National Union of Teachers elections.
The union agreed to conduct in person voting after the ministry of health okayed the exercise to be conducted.
“The elections will be held in strict compliance with the Covid-19 guidelines as issued by the Ministry of Health to avoid transmission of the dreaded virus within the delegates who will be attending the Special Delegates Conference,” said Sossion.
