"The authority will identify areas that do not have a 3G network so that we can communicate in advance and look for alternatives for transmitting results," he added.

The UK has since pledged to provide financial support to the IEBC as it seeks to deliver on its mandate.

Present at the event were Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju, NCIC chair Samuel Kobia, Chief Registrar of Judiciary Ann Amadi and Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu.
