ODM official accused of stealing Raila’s Supreme Court evidence

The ODM national Vice Chairman has been forced to come out and deny the allegations.

Ahmed Abdullahi, who is the ODM’s National Vice Chairman and immediate former Governor of Wajir County, was accused by the IEBC of irregularly copy-pasting documents used by Odinga in a past Supreme Court case.

The IEBC  lawyers claimed Abdullahi’s petition against the current Wajir governor was fully plagiarized from the one Odinga had used in his successful petition against President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Plagiarism is the act of stealing some other person’s ideas and passing them as one’s own. It is highly discouraged in law and has in the past landed many lawyers in trouble.

Earlier in the year, renowned law scholar Prof PLO Lumumba was forced to apologize and agree to an out-of-court settlement after he was accused of plagiarizing another lawyer’s work.

The former Wajir Governor filed the petition after he lost to Jubilee’s Muhumed Abdi.

In his petition, the former Governor told the High Court that results from some polling stations failed to pass through the KIEMS kits and no data was on the IEBC portal.

"My agents deserved to know what was happening in all polling stations, but they were unable to access some of them," he pleaded.
