Four IEBC commissioners who distanced themselves from the results of the presidential election have continued with their onslaught on their boss, Wafula Chebukati.

For the better part of Tuesday, August 16, IEBC vice-chair Juliana Cherera sparked reactions over the final percentages of the tally.

Cherera explained that they did not agree with Chebukati’s results since the final percentage was 100.01% and not 100%.

She argued that the 0.01 percent represented at least 142,000 voters and could have affected the presidential results.

“Chebukati’s aggregation was as follows 48.85%, 50.49% 0.27% and 0.44%. This summation gives us a total of 100.01 per cent- this translates to approximately 142k votes which will make a significant difference in the final result,” Cherera said.

However, calculations by netizens indicated that the math was wrong since 0.01 percent of the total voters is 1,420.

Below is how Kenyans reacted to the same.

At the same time, Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga will challenged Deputy President William Ruto’s victory in the just concluded elections.

“Our view in Azimio is clear, the figures by Wafula Chebukati are null and void and must be quashed by a court of law. In our view, there is neither a legally and validly declared winner nor a president-elect,” Raila said.
