Smartmatic has been evaluated as the best bidder for providing biometric voter verification equipment for the 2021 election with its bid of Sh82.8 billion (US$22.4 million) reports The Daily Monitor.

It beat Genkey, Idemia and Technology Associates according to the article. The same company was awarded a Sh66 billion contract supply equipment for the 2016 election.

President Museveni, who has been in power since 1986 and accused by critics of electoral manipulation, stated last month that he wants to ensure there is no vote rigging in next year’s poll.
