NASA leader Raila Odinga and DP Ruto are expected for a meeting with IEBC commissioners at Anniversary towers. The agenda is likely to be centred on the fresh October 17 poll. The meeting is set to kick off any time.
Whereas NASA leader is pushing for changes within IEBC to guarantee a free and fair election the Jubilee side lead by alleged rigging mastermind DP Ruto is insisting that IEBC can carry out October polls without any changes.
IEBC’s ICT director James Muhati, Ms Kasait and CEO Chiloba are alleged to have worked closely with President Uhuru’s national chief agent former CS Davis Chirchir to set up a parallel source of data that was transmitted to the national tallying centre.
The meeting comes in the wake of a confidential memo from IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati to CEO Ezra Chiloba raising various concerns. The memo raised the possibility that none of the Presidential results announced at the Bomas of Kenya, emanated from Kenya’s designated 40,883 polling stations. Which raises the question – where did the numbers come from? Did an election happen?
Four of the issues raised in the Chebukati memo have serious ramifications on the above questions.
1. That the KIEMS GPRS and geofencing features were switched off from August, 5, three days to the polls.
2. That Chebukati’s username and password were created without his knowledge or consent ad used to log into the IEBC server almost 9,934 times.
3. That the transmission of results from 10,366 – affecting 4,636,556 registered voters – out of the 40,883 polling stations was done without accompanying forms 34A.
4. That satellite phones worth KShs 848 million – USD$ 8.3 million purchased to transmit results from all 290 Constituencies and 47 County Tallying centers were never used.
