Macharia provides satellite as alternative for BVR

Royal Media Services boss S. K. Macharia has different with Information and CommuicationTechnology (ICT) Cabinet Secretary John Mucheru on the transmission of 2017 general election votes.

The ruling coalition has been backing up manual as an alternative if the Biometric Voter Registration kits fail with the opposition terming it as a plan for Jubilee government ti steal its way back in Power.

However, the RMS boss believes that satellite can be used as an alternative instead of manual.

“We can use satellite phones to transmit voting data to IEBC head quatres in areas not covered by mobile phone network,”  RMS Chair SK Macharia said.
