Are you a BBI Supporter and you do not know? IEBC asks

According to this article www.the-star.co.ke/news/2021-01-21-iebc-publishes-verified-bbi-signatures-for-public-scrutiny/ , There are 2 PDF files with lists of names that people need to look through. However the information hasn’t been organized in Alphabetical order for counties or even people’s names. I therefore wonder how people are supposed to scroll through over 15,000 pages just to check if their name has been listed.

Having an online query system would have been much easier in terms of user experience. People would simply key in their three or four names and check if it matches with their ID numbers or any other identifiers that were provided.

Also isn’t releasing the names publicly putting people’s live at risk in case of targeting?

Thank you for sharing the article, I however can’t seem to find the link for doing the verification.

Listers,

If you are a Kenyan citizen, this is for you.

Were you ever approached to put your signature on a document in support for the Building Bridges Initiative? I know most of you will say ‘naaa’

IEBC says you might have endorsed that document that politicians claim will take you to Canaan faster from your current state.

IEBC asks Kenyans to verify if listed as BBI supporters without consent www.standardmedia.co.ke <www.standardmedia.co.ke> /kenya/article/2001400835/iebc-asks-kenyans-to-verify-if-listed-as-bbi-supporters-without-consent

Where is our lovely Data Commissioner in this mix though?
