The reasoning for one of the four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners’ opposition to the presidential vote total reported by chair Wafula Chebukati has been made public.
Commissioner Justus Nyang’aya alleged in his response to Raila Odinga and Martha Karua’s petition that three IEBC employees and a foreigner going by the name of Gudino Omor tampered with the commission’s server and form 34A, altering the outcomes.
In his statement, Nyang’aya said, “That I am aware that a foreigner by the name of Gudino Omor was able to access the commission’s system using user ID “O” and to pull down results that had been posted from the polling places and then upload fresh results.”
The commissioner further asserted that Omor had accessed the site starting in June.
Nyang’aya further asserts that it is simple to track the foreigner’s activity on the server, including his access times, active and inactive periods, and his log entries.
Additionally, he has identified three IEBC employees: Abdidahir Maalim, Moses Sunkuli, and Gideon Balang as the ones who gained access to the commission’s servers, downloaded certain results that had been uploaded, and then uploaded others.
The commissioner asserted that “these are the same officers who were aiding the second respondent in unilaterally processing the results, which were afterwards declared by the second respondent.”
He added that there was proof of the IEBC workers tampering with data saved on the server in the logs received from the agency’s server.
He further asserted that after being downloaded and reuploaded, alterations had been made to Forms 34B.
Azimio-One Kenya leaders Odinga and Karua have brought up a variety of problems in their appeal, including the allegation that forms 34A collected at the voting places were taken over and changed before being submitted to the IEBC web.
Odinga claimed that William Ruto’s strongholds of Bomet and Kiambu counties saw a decline in his support.
On Friday, he responded to the presidential petition.
