Four Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commissioners (IEBC) led by Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera, have rejected the outcome of the August 9 presidential election.
Cherera stated that together with her other collegeaus including Francis Wanderi, Justus Nyangaya, and Irene Masit, stated that they could not take ownership of the election results owing to the opaque nature of the final process of verification of the resulst.
Cherera stated that the IEBC conducted an election that was free, fair and verifiable. However, she argued that the final verification was shrouded in mystery.IEBC Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera during an IEBC briefing at the Bomas of Kenya on Monday, August 1, 2022.Kenyans.co.ke
"We are not at the Bomas of Kenya because we cannot take ownership of the results that are going to be announced because of the opaque nature which these results have been handled," Cherera stated.
The IEBC Vice chairperson added that the aggrieved parties with the process are free to seek legal redress.
At Bomas, IEBC Wafula Chebukati's efforts to announce the final presidential elections results were marred by violence after a section of leaders stormed the podium.
The IEBC chairperson was whisked away faster by law enforcement officers at Bomas.
Chebukati was accompanied by IEBC Chief Executive Officer Abdi Guliye who were set to announce the results.
The statements come after Azimio la Umoja Chief Agent Saitabao Kanchory claimed that the IEBC system had been compromised.
Speaking at Bomas of Kenya, Kanchory added that Azimio's claims were backed by intelligence information that unknown persons had infiltrated the system.
"We have intelligence reports that the IEBC system was penetrated and hacked and that some of the IEBC officials had actually committed intellectual offences and some of them ought to be arrested," he stated.
"We were not in any position to ask our party leader to come before we actually verify results, which we have not done," Kanchory added.
According to election timeliness, the electoral commission is supposed to announce presidential results after seven days.
