IEBC denies system hacking claims by Raila

Ezra Chiloba said there was no hacking of the election management system.

During a press conference at the Bomas of Kenya, IEBC CEO said that there was no external or internal interference before, during and after the voting exercise ended.

"Our systems are secure and the claims earlier made cannot be substantiated. and we have received no complaints of hacking on our systems," Chiloba affirmed.

He said out of the 40, 883 Form 34 As, the commission had so far received 29,000.

The form 34 As contain the official presidential results signed by the presiding officer and the party agents of a particular polling station.

Chiloba also revealed that 96 per cent of the polling stations had reported to the commission.

"Only 1300 polling stations are yet to report to the commission. We hope by midnight we will have received all of them," Chiloba stated.

The CEO urged Kenyans to remain patient until the process reaches its ultimate conclusion.

Addressing the press earlier on Wednesday, Raila said some people at 12pm on voting day gained access to the IEBC data base and manipulated results to give President Uhuru Kenyatta false results.

Raila claimed the hackers used credentials from the late IEBC ICT manager Chris Msando to access the IEBC main server and give false results.
