The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has issued tough rules following a scuffle at the National Tallying Centre.
There was a standoff at the Bomas of Kenya on Friday, August 12, after Azimio agents raised an alarm over a strange electronic device spotted at the NTC.
Presidential representatives from the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party and Azimio clashed when the suspicious gadget was allegedly sneaked into the room by unknown people.
Journalists were kicked out of the auditorium as IEBC officials led by Prof Abdi Guliye called for an urgent meeting with the chief agents.
Guliye also called in security to contain the situation and warned politicians that such acts will not be tolerated.
He also directed politicians who had thronged the National Tallying Centre to leave if they had nothing to do at Bomas, blaming them over the scuffle.
Journalists were also banned from taking pictures of IEBC officials, with Guliye noting that this was putting them in danger.
