Maraga announces the costly mistake IEBC made forcing it to Nullify Uhuru’s win

Chief Justice David Maraga has now revealed the mistake IEBC made that proved costly leading to the cancellation of President Uhuru Kenyatta's win...

While reading the full judgment on Wednesday, Maraga castigated the electoral body for defying court's orders to open the IEBC servers.

This meant that failure of IEBC to open the servers could have helped debunk NASA's claims that the system was hacked.

The Opposition, led by Raila Odinga had alleged that the IEBC system was hacked by people who used the late Chris Msando’s logins to manipulate the numbers in favor of Kenyatta.

According to the supreme court, it held that IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati was responsible for failure to explain why poll results were not transmitted in the prescribed manner.

“Nasa proved that the IEBC declared the presidential winner before receiving all 40,883 Forms 34A,” Part of the judgement read.

Maraga added," There was no reasonable explanation why some forms had security features while others missed."
