All the four county returning officers – Joh Cox, George Jobando (Nyakach Constituency Returning officer) and Yvonne Oketch (Kisumu East Constituency Returning officer) and her Deputy Maureen Otili, told the packed court that there were serious errors and as such they could not guarantee the accuracy of the data they announced.

The County Returning officer Mr John Cox failed to account for serious discrepancies that were visibly witnessed in the forms 37As, 37Bs and 37C, which was used to announce the final tally.

“I had no role in altering the results as I had received from the constituency tallying centre,” Mr Cox told Jack Ranguma’s lawyer Richard Onsongo who sought to know the fate of missing forms from five polling stations.

“The Form 37A indicates 530 as the registered number of voters, while valid votes cast are 530 and three are rejected. Can you account for the three?” posed Onsongo to Ms Otili.

“I cannot account for them,” answered Otili.

Ms Otili had taken up the roles of Ms Oketch who had fled the constituency tallying centre after she allegedly received threats.

“A security intelligence officer advised me that I needed to leave the place as it was not safe for me. This was after I was accosted by a person perceived to be a supporter of one of the area parliamentary candidates,” said Oketch.

Kisumu Governor’s key rival Jack Ranguma petitioned the election on Peter Anyang Nyong’o citing massive irregularities in te August 8 exercise.
