IEBC responds to NASA after making daring announcement over August polls

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has announced that all constituency results declaration forms for the presidential election held on August 8 are now available to the public.

The commission indicated on Wednesday (16/8/17) that form 34Bs from the 290 constituencies in the country, as well as results declaration forms from the Diaspora, had been uploaded on their public portal for download by members of the public.

The National Super Alliance (NASA) had on Tuesday (yesterday) claimed that the IEBC planned to falsify presidential results on forms 34B.

NASA co-principal Musalia Mudavadi claimed the electoral agency ‘failed or refused’ to share the forms from returning officers in 290 constituencies to eight presidential candidates and their agents.

“The failure can only lead to a conclusion that the forms do not exist and the commission is busy generating fake forms to justify its declaration of results made on August 11,” Mudavadi said in a statement.

NASA said its chief agents had been requesting IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati to avail the forms since Saturday without success.

“The said forms cannot be traced or accessed on the commission’s online portal,” the coalition noted.

NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga divulged today (Wednesday) that he will challenge what he called ‘fictitious election results’ on the basis of which President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared winner of the General Election, in the Supreme Court.

“We have now decided to move to the Supreme Court and lay before the world the making of a computer generated leadership.

“By going to court, we are not legitimizing misplaced calls by some observers for us to concede but are seeking to give to those who braved the long lines in the morning chill and hot afternoon on Tuesday August 8, 2017… mothers with their children tied on their backs; the sick, people with disabilities, old and young a chance to be heard,” he indicated.

Raila stressed that results announced by the IEBC last Friday were unlawful because they were not backed by documents that were supposed to be supplied from polling stations.
