This comes after Raila Odinga’s Chief Agent Saitabao Ole Kanchory has rejected the presidential election results.
Speaking with journalists at the Bomas of Kenya, Kanchory claimed that the IEBC system was compromised by hackers.
He also claimed that some IEBC officials were involved in the same, which he said amounts to electoral offences.
“IEBC’s system was penetrated and hacked. Some IEBC officials committed electoral offences. We have information
“We were not able to ask our party leader to come before we verify the results, which we have been unable to do. I had earlier stated that Bomas was a crime scene,” Kanchory said.
At the same time, a section of Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commissioners (IEBC) commissioners have disputed the outcome of the presidential election.
The four commissioners led by Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera maintained that they could not take ownership of the election results.
They argued that the final process of verification of the result was not transparent hence their resistance.
The other commissioners are Francis Wanderi, Justus Nyangaya and Irene Masit.
“We are not at the Bomas of Kenya because we cannot take ownership of the results that are going to be announced because of the opaque nature which these results have been handled,” Cherera stated.
She, however, stated that the IEBC conducted an election that was free, fair and verifiable except for the final process.
