IEBC ‘plotting to fake’ forms 34B presidential results, NASA claims

NASA claims IEBC plans to falsify presidential results on forms 34B, while Thirdway Alliance leader Ekuru Aukot has reported anomalies in the results.

NASA’s Musalia Mudavadi claims in a statement that the electoral agency has “failed or refused” to share the forms from returning officers in 290 constituencies to eight presidential candidates and their agents.

“The failure can only lead to a conclusion that the forms do not exist and the commission is busy generating fake forms to justify its declaration of results made on August 11,” reads the statement.

NASA says its chief agents have been requesting IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati to avail the forms since Saturday without success.

“The said forms cannot be traced or accessed on the commission’s online portal,” the coalition says.

IEBC has already published forms 34A from 40,883 polling stations on presidential results announced on Friday night where President Uhuru Kenyatta was announced winner.

Uhuru won with more than 8 million votes, a result disputed by NASA leader Raila Odinga who got 6 million votes.

Raila has declined to concede defeat despite the international community and election observers mounting pressure on him to acknowledge the outcome.

Aukot also poked holes in the presidential results saying his party’s audit of results transmission revealed a “worrying trend.”

“Something went fundamentally wrong. Only the truth and justice on what at transmission of results will set IEBC free. We shall be sharing our audit of the results transmission. We are worried. An injustice happened,” he said.

Aukot came fifth in the presidential race after the Alliance for Real Change candidate Abduba Dida, independent candidate Joseph Nyagah, Raila and Uhuru.

He conceded defeat on Thursday evening and called on Raila to also concede for Kenyans continue with their normal life.

“Our statement was clear. While we accepted the results then, we also noted a problem with the transmission. We promised to file a report,” Aukot said.

Poll monitoring organisation ELOG has however upheld IEBC’s results, saying it had found no evidence to suggest this week’s election was manipulated or inaccurate

Raila, his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka, their NASA co-principals Mudavadi, Bungoma senator Moses Wetang’ula and outgoing Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto will today announce the coalitions next move after disputing Uhuru’s reelection.
