Raila's team in trouble after disturbing discovery
Raphael Tuju has spilled the beans eventually!
In a letter to the DPP on Friday, Jubilee claimed that the duo wrote to Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati insinuating they had obtained election results from the servers.
Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju argued that the hacking claims by the Opposition is either the truth or was false propaganda meant to taint the election process.
“NASA leaders have subsequently held numerous press conferences at which they claim to be holding data and information from IEBC’s IT system, which could only be accessed unlawfully or which is false information deliberately disseminated to undermine the electoral process,” Tuju said in the letter.
On August 10, NASA team held a press briefing and claimed that it had "legitimate results" from an IEBC database, which suggested that Raila had won the August 8 election with 8.1 million votes against Uhuru’s 7.2 million, demanding that the IEBC declare Raila the president-elect.
According to Mudavadi who read the statement on the fateful day, voters amounting to 18,362,556 turned out, representing 73.8 per cent of the total number of registered voters. But upon tabulation, the turnout rose by 20 per cent.
“We request your good office to expeditiously direct comprehensive investigation and prosecution if your investigations uncover sufficient evidence against Hon Mudavadi and senior counsel James Orengo and any other person who had unauthorised access to the IEBC servers,” reads in part, Tuju's letter sent to the DPP.
Acquitted IEBC staff
In its detailed ruling by the Supreme Court judgement delivered on Thursday, the court said that it could not find any person within the IEBC who irregularly accessed the system.
“We are therefore unable to impute any criminal intent or culpability on either the first and second respondent (IEBC and Chebukati), or any other commissioner or member of the first respondent. We are similarly unable to find any evidence of misconduct on the part of the third respondent. The prayer is disallowed,” the Maraga led team ruled.
