“Don’t think that you can cook numbers.. If you want to sustain your tyranny take it to the bedroom, not the boardroom,” The Star quoted Duale.

Close to 25 constituencies may be scrapped off after failing to hit population threshold in the just released census numbers.

According to a highly placed source, a number of constituencies could be merged for failing to hit the required 164,137 people threshold in the 2010 constitution.

According to the provisional census data 2019 released last Monday, 40 constituencies recorded numbers lower than the required, hence risk merger.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), consequently, could get a new responsibility of handling the matter, despite noise from some unsatisfied legislators.

The Star publication singled out the possible victims as Laikipia North (36,184), Budalang’i (85,977), Mt Elgon (78,873), Lamu East (22,258), Kuria East (96,872), Mwatate (81,659) and Kathiani (111,890).

Others are; Tetu (80,453), Tiaty (73,424), Lafey (83,457), Keiyo North (99,173), Eldas (88,509), Marakwet East (97,041), Mwingi East (85,139) and Samburu North (67,391).

Kangundo (97,917), Mukurweini (87,137), Samburu East (77,994), Loima (107,795), Mathioya (92,814), Pokot South (80,661), Kangema (80,447), and Turkana North (65,218) are also in danger.

Among the notable protesters of the census numbers is Majority Leader National Assembly Aden Duale who has vowed to go to court to stop possible implementation of the census report.

“Don’t think that you can cook numbers.. If you want to sustain your tyranny take it to the bedroom, not the boardroom,” The Star quoted Duale.
