BLOG: Technology is the biggest loser in elections

09 March 2013, 12:13

What a week its been in Kenya! The only thing that has mattered for the past 6 days or so has been the drawn out elections that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commisson (IEBC) has been conducting.

At the heart of the many delays has been the multiple levels of failure where technology was used in the elections is concerned. It all started with electronic registers on Monday that could not be used due to problems, forcing the use of manual paper-based systems.

There was the problem of mobile phones not being able to synchronize to relay election results to the IEBC headquarters. There was also the problem of rejected votes being overstated by a factor of 8 due to a “bug” in the central database.
