The running mate of one of Kenya‘s two frontrunners in a presidential vote has said the ballot count lacks integrity and should stop, comments that could inflame a largely peaceful election so far.
“We as a coalition take the position the national vote tallying process lacks integrity and has to be stopped,” said Kalonzo Musyoka, running beside the prime minister, Raila Odinga. “We have evidence the results we are receiving have been doctored.”
But he said his comments were not a call for protests. Odinga is trailing the leader, Uhuru Kenyatta, three days after the polls closed. Authorities said on Wednesday the outcome would not be compromised by the failure of electronic counting technology that has left Kenyans in the dark about the result.
