A team of Kenyan IT and Communications ‘experts’ who had been contracted by Tanzania’s opposition party Chadema to assist its candidate Edward Lowassa win the election have been hounded.
According sources, though we have not been able to independently verify the veracity of the info we have; A famus State House blogger however escaped the Tanzania police dragnet, leaving his compatriots to eat their raw tomatoes. A Mr. Julius Mwonga Matei, believed to be an NIS agent, has already been charged together with eight others.
The team were bursted by CCM Youths who alerted the police of their activities. They allegedly created a parallel vote tallying centre like the one TNA created and shared its server with IEBC. In the end, TNA could massage the numbers and give IEBC to read.
The arrest is likely to cause some minor diplomatic row as ruling party CCM candidate John Pombe Magufuli is leading and will most likely be declared winner of the biggest and resource rich country. Kenya may suffer short term alienation in the regional power game. Grandpa and dictator Museveni has already abandoned the LAPSET project together with Ethiopia who have instead embraced other neighbours for mega regional infrastructure projects.
Shit happened when IEBC could not explain the curiously high number of ‘spoilt votes’ which led to the system being abandoned. However, by then, Uhuru had been rigged home and dry…and the dry spell continues, with an economy on meltdown.
