Alarm as IEBC is unable to provide NASA with results documents
The letter by IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba addressed to Nasa says that the commission is unable to provide them with Form 34 As after the presidential results were announced.
The letter written by IEBC CEO, Ezra Chiloba, was in response to NASA’s allegations that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission was yet to avail Form 34 As and Form 34 B’s four days after the presidential results were announced.
According to NASA’s press briefing yesterday, the Opposition party has been following up with IEBC since Saturday for a release of the forms but to no avail.
They also noted that the forms in question could not be traced or accessed on the commission’s site.
“The NASA presidential campaign notes with concern that IEBC has failed to release and share copies of Form 34B’s to candidates or their agents. Our agents have been following up with IEBC without any success.”
They went to demand the release and share of all the constituency Forms 34Bs to party agents while warning that failure to do so could only lead to a conclusion that the forms do not exist and that the Commission is busy generating fake Forms to justify its declaration of the results as made on Saturday 11.
In the response letter, the IEBC CEO acknowledges the Opposition’s queries stating that IEBC was unable to provide the forms at the moment but would submit them as soon as possible.
It reads, “… The commission is in a place to provide all requested form 34B’s immediately. We are however not able to provide Form 34 A’s but the same will be availed to you as soon as possible…”
This has resulted in online users questioning the credibility of IEBC and how it managed the electoral process as many questioned how the commission arrived at the final declaration without the Forms 34A that were highly essential in configuring the final tally.
IEBC is also under fire for posting an exercise book written as a Form 34 A on their website but they quickly deleted if after Kenyans online took notice.
This comes after former gubernatorial candidate Dr Miguna Miguna raised a few inconsistencies during the electoral process that the Independent commission is yet to account for such as IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati’s public declaration that indeed there was hacking of the IEBC systems.
Former presidential candidate Ekuru Aukot who was one of the first to concede defeat has also raised alarm over electoral discrepancies especially in Kisumu.
