The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on Friday, December 3, announced that it was auctioning 30 vehicles.
In a notice, the electoral agency under the leadership of its chairman Wafula Chebukati said that some of the vehicles will be sold for as low as Ksh50,000.
It revealed that the prizes of the vehicles range from Ksh45,000 to Ksh2.9 million.
The vehicle models that have been put on sale include; Nissan Double Cabin, Toyota Saloons, a minibus, a Land Rover, and Daihatsu Terios.
Others include; Land Rover Defender, Land Cruisers, Nissan Navara and Volk Wagens.
“The locations that the vehicles are found include; Nairobi at the Kenya Methodist University (KEMU) Towers and Industrial Area. Others are in Isiolo, Kakamega, Machakos, Kilifi, Lamu and Garissa counties,” the notice read in part.
“Interested persons can start placing their bid as from December 17, starting 10:00 am. In other areas, the auction will run up to January 22,” it further read.
Anyone who wants to purchase the vehicles will be required to pay a refundable deposit of Ksh20,000 per vehicle and a non-refundable deposit of Ksh5,000 in their offices located at Anniversary Towers in Nairobi.
Once one purchases the vehicle, it must be picked within a maximum of seven days failure to which, the vehicle will be given to the second-highest bidder.
In such a case, the highest bidder will see their deposit fortified.
“The auctioneers have, however, reserved the right to accept or reject any bid without being compelled to give any reason whatsoever,” the notice further read.
IEBC is also auctioneering stores that are located across the country.
Anyone interested in purchasing any of the stores should follow the same procedures as those of the vehicles.
This comes at a time when IEBC, through Chebukati, has raised concerns that it was struggling financially.
