The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) says it has identified 24 electoral agency staff to be charged over the botched August 8 presidential polls even as the Opposition accuses it of complicity.

Dorcas Oduor, Secretary of Public Prosecutions, said the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) employees are among 144 individuals to be prosecuted over electoral offences.

Ms Oduor would not state whether the prosecutions are wholly linked to the Supreme Court ruling or part of the State’s investigations.

“The ODPP is prosecuting 144 election-related offences including 24 IEBC officials,” said Ms Oduor who is also the head of Economic, International and Emerging crimes.
