ON CORD PARALLEL BVR/ELECTORAL MONITORING SYSTEM
This is the best idea since the advent of democracy by God in Heaven. Many of us who have seriously analyzed opposition performance in 2007 & 2013 election will tell you for free that in 2007 ODM parallel system was very thorough and very ground that caught even electoral looters back foot.
On that basis, the evidence they had was so glaring & convincing that had they gone to any competent court of law, the elections would have been annulled & Raila Odinga declared the bonafide president.
2013 CORD was ill prepared. Uhuru Kenyatta had a parallel system based in CUEA that monitored including withdrawal polls & knew his results long before even IEBC announced. ODM/CORD as usual took jokes too far choosing to file its case last minute & delivering its so called 900 sworn affidavits in what was more symbolic way of accepting defeat than bracing for a serious legal contest. They had no concrete convincing evidence to sustain a case because they did not have a system to collect it. Recall CORD writing to IEBC to provide it with evidence to prosecute IEBC.
Ever wondered why Buhari, Natenyahu,Alexis Tsipras etc were declared presidents and PM’s before their national electoral umpires declared official results OR why opposition in those countries concede too early like Yitzhak Herzog did in Israel? Its because they have internal parallel systems that monitored every bit and relays every development.
BVR Parallel kit I support.
