Kenya Presidential results to be announced by Monday -IEBC

By David Indeje / August 9, 2017




Kenya’s electoral body has said they will officially announce the final presidential results on Monday after they have verified all the Form 3A and Form 3 B.

“The commission has seven days to announce presidential results (today is the second day),” said Wafula Chebukati the IEBC Chair. “We shall wait for all documents required by the la before announcing the presidential results. The official results are derived from form34A and form 34B,” he added.

Ezra Chiloba, “We assure that the data on our system meet the highest levels of integrity. Our system and passwords are secure.”

However, Chebukati said, “As for now, I cannot say whether the IEBC system was hacked or not. As a commission, we shall have our own investigation mechanism to kick in.”

They were responding to the National Super Alliance (NASA) allegations that the system had been hacked.

“What the IEBC has posted as results of the Presidential Elections is a complete fraud based on a multiplier that fraudulently gave Uhuru Kenyatta votes that were not cast,” said Raila Odinga in a media briefing.

“The electoral fraud a fabrication of results was massive and extensive to the extent that the results of the 47 counties were manipulated,” he added.

“At about 12.37 pm on the 8th  August 2017, hackers gained entry into our election database through the identity of Chris Msando who was executed barely a week ago into the account of the Mr. Chebukati Chairperson,” alleged the NASA team.

According to Raila, The provisional figures on the election commission’s website gives Uhuru a lead, but their independent tall showed that Uhuru had 7.2 million votes, versus 8.1 million for Raila.

Ekuru Aukot, Thirdway Alliance, affirmed the same sentiments that the problem with the electoral commission was the transmission of the poll results which had no backing.

Heads of International Election Observation Missions, including EU EOM Kenya 2017, in a joint statement called upon all parties and their supporters to follow the tally process within the provisions of the law as the IEBC continues finalising results based on forms 34A. “We note the stated commitment of the IEBC to make scanned copies of forms 34A available to candidates and the public.“

They also appealed to the public  to remain committed to peace and the integrity of the electoral process. “We urge candidates and parties to use the legally provided channels of dispute resolution in case of any dissatisfaction with the process and to urge their supporters to remain calm.”
