National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate Raila Odinga has reacted to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati’s memo to the CEO Ezra Chiloba saying intrigues at electoral body is proof enough that IEBC denied Kenyans their democratic right.
Chebukati’s memo to Chiloba, which is dated September 5, detailed numerous failures by the secretariat that formed a key part of the Supreme Court proceedings. The chair also wants an explanation as why the Kenya Integrated Elections Management System (KIEMS) kits used in the election were not locked to specific locations as it had been agreed.
When Uhuru failed to get his way
Raila claimed that some key jubilee agents started posting results into the IEBC servers a day before the election date.
He said that NASA technology experts were able to discover the malpractice from the logs given to them by the electoral body which the leaked memo also revealed.
The Opposition leader satellite phones bought by the commission were not used to relay data from polling stations as it was supposed to be.
Raila also wondered why 682 polling stations had an equal number of rejected votes vis-à-vis the number of registered voters as addressed in the memo.
He pointed out 595 Polling stations failed/refused to send any results for the presidential election.
The NASA leader accused Jubilee of interfering with the election process saying President Uhuru Kenyatta is not a fair competitor.
