Disturbing Testimony Delivered In Case Against Jaguar

  • Steve Mbogo, who came second in the Starehe MP Parliamentary race, has on Tuesday told a court how he was harassed and his agents assaulted during the August 8th General Election.

    While testifying in an election petition case he filed challenging the election of Charles 'Jaguar' Kanyi, Mbogo alleged that he was attacked and his agents stabbed during the poll.

    He further claimed 'massive ballot stuffing' had taken place and that he had been denied access to Pumwani Secondary School Polling Station.

    Justice Fred Ochieng' was told of how the entire electoral process from voting, counting, tallying, and declaration of results was not done in accordance with the law.

    Mbogo stated: "I am aggrieved by the declaration and believe the election was riddled with grave breaches of the constitution and applicable electoral laws."

    Mbogo ran on an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket but was defeated by Jubilee Party's Jaguar.

    On Monday, a researcher, Nyangasi Oduor, had told the court that upon scrutiny, he had discovered serious anomalies in 160 out of 182 Forms 35A.

    Among other things, he noted that a large number of the forms lacked the official Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) stamp.

    He further claimed that many forms had not been signed by either the Presiding Officer or the Deputy Presiding Officer.

    The IEBC was ordered to file all forms for the constituency and release memory cards from the Kenya Integrated Elections Management System (KIEMS) to Deputy Registrar Elizabeth Tanui.
