We Can Use Satellite Phones In Areas Not Covered By Mobile Network- RMS Chair SK Macharia

SK Macharia the CEO of Royal Media Services and chairperson of media Owners Association has championed for the use of Bio-metric Voter Registration kits as opposed to the use of manual voters as a back up.

“There is no issue of manual or electronic voting. We have the bio-metric voter register and the same equipment is used to identify the voters,” he said.

The government and the opposition party had had a standoff over the voting system as the election day being separated by just eight months ahead.

The opposition being in favor of electronic back suppose the BVR kits fail while the government popularized by Jubilee party opting for the manual voting as a back up.

“If you print the voter register you will have my name but you cannot have my fingerprints and my eyes. If someone insists that he is registered you can type on the equipment and his picture and fingerprint will be identified,” he added.

Speaking on behalf of the Media Owners Association when he appeared before the Joint Legal and ICT committee of the Senate, he added that,  “If you print the voter register you will have my name but you cannot have my fingerprints and my eyes. If someone insists that he is registered you can type on the equipment and his picture and fingerprint will be identified”.

CORD and Jubilee parties have accused of favoring a system that will help them in election malpractices.
