Job-seekers knock down IEBC site

Kenya’s IEBC site has gone down under a surge of applicants seeking work as Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) clerks for the next election.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is recruiting 2,900 BVR clerks, who will register voters at the CAWs/polling stations using electronic equipment that captures the voter’s biometric features.

The IEBC says the applications are only to be made online and must be done on or before 29th July, 2012.

However, the site has become inaccessible as job-seekers applied for the posts. IEBC said in a notice on its facebook page: “Our servers are overwhelmed by online applications for VR clerk jobs. Sorry but don't worry we are increasing the capacity. Meanwhile try, if you can, to log in at some less busy time - very early or late in the day.”

Frustrated applicants said in social media posts that a good time to access the site was between 02:00 and 06:00 in the morning.

IT IS REALLY UNFAIR FOR THE IEBC TO MAKE A TUSKY WORK. Y ALL THIS. SHOULD THEY LOOK FOR A BETTER WAY TO MAKE YOUNG KENYANS A PROMISING LIFE.

Ronald Tinega - July 28, 2012, 10:24 a.m.

Deliberatly denying the youths a chance as clercks because the website does not work.What if no access to the internet services?stop corruption and nepotism of highest order!!

Maroa Denis - Sept. 11, 2012, 9:56 a.m.

You have created an opportunity for the youths to work and some will be able to pay school fees, only that you be fair when recruting

Stephen Mulwa - Sept. 22, 2012, noon

Have the BVR Clerks been enlisted?
