According to a forensic analysis report, the three Venezuelans at the center of allegations of vote manipulation may have compromised the integrity of the nation’s election system.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) report has revealed how the three foreigners were able to hack into the systems remotely and had unrestricted access to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) result transmission server.
The DCI has advised a forensic investigation of the IEBC network system to see whether the vulnerabilities could have been used to rig the now-controversial presidential election.
The forensic analysis report states that it “was determined that the confiscated exhibits had substantial information held in the IEBC systems are in full control (sic) of foreigner’s workers of M/S Smartmatic International Holdings BV and Seamless Limited who have been hired by IEBC.”
In order to offer voter identification and results transmission technologies for the General Election on August 9, the IEBC hired Smartmatic.

One contender for president of Kenya, Raila Odinga, alleges that Forms 34A were intercepted and the results changed before they were re-posted on the IEBC system for the Bomas of Kenya’s final tallying.

The evidence, which comprised a 1TB external disc, a laptop, six flash disks, three mobile phones, one tablet, a Sim card, and a monitor, were subjected to a forensic analysis by the DCI.
A laptop exhibit that was taken from Mr. Castellano and subjected to forensic examination showed that the user had been able to log in remotely using remote desktop software to the IEBC local IP address.
The person had been accessing IEBC systems since March 2022, according to the laptop’s remote access history to the IEBC IP address.
It was determined that Jose Gregorio Camargo Castellano is one of the IEBC system administrators, able to access all IEBC data remotely, and able to add to, remove from, edit, or otherwise manipulate in
Along with other essential parts of the IEBC electoral technology system, the laptop contained the IEBC Kiems kit deployment list, an IEBC network diagram, an IEBC database schematic diagram, usernames, and passwords.
According to an analysis of the hard drive that was taken from Mr. Castellanos, it had settings for IEBC server remote access, a results transmission system, access rights for IEBC system users, and system upgrades.
The information was revealed against the backdrop of an explosive affidavit by Mr. Justus Nyang’aya, one of the commissioners who disclaimed the results as announced by Mr. Chebukati, in which he claimed that a foreigner by the name of Godino Omor had access to the server and was able to download the results posted.
