project schedule, travel details of Jose Gregorio, IEBC VPN access credentials,
setting for remote access to IEBC server, Results transmission system, IEBC desk
board users IEBC system users access rights, IEBC integrated data management
system update development.
Therefore, Raila Odinga petitioned the court that the arrest of the said foreign
nationals travelling with sensitive IEBC election related materials and information
under evidence questionable circumstance shows incredible, inexcusable and
unacceptable integrity and security of the election process and system.
He argued that combined with the capability of the foreigners and anyone in
possession of the contents and information in the electronic devices to remotely
access and manipulate the entire IEBC data and the manifest discrepancies and
irregularities manifest during the general election and the tallying verification of
count and declaration of the presidential election result; it is the inevitable and
inescapable influence and conclusion that not only was the presidential election
not secure, it is not verifiable, accountable, neutral or transparent.
His petition further contends that the deliberate interference with the integrity,
credibility and security of the presidential election was intended to alter and did
in fact, alter the outcome of the results of the presidential election.
“The president shall seek an order of the court directing the National Police
Services and in particular the Director of Criminal Investigations to produce
statements, photographs, reports, equipment, and laptops. Phones and other
gadgets and devices and any other materials connected or related to the conduct
of the elections and found in possession of the Venezuelan nationals.
More authentic materials produced before the Supreme Court indicates the fact
and evidence shows that the fraudulent interference with the electronic copies of
the result declared in forms 34A were fraudulently altered after the transmission
of the Forms 34A from the polling station.
The fact and evidence show that the interference with the forms 34A transmitted
to National Tallying Center was deliberate and done with criminal intent to alter
and reduce the votes cast for petitioner; and increase the 9 TH Respondent’s votes
without interfering with the total valid votes cast.
Raila Odinga further argued that violation of and or lack of an electoral system
and process that is conducted by an independent body; and administered in an
impartial neutral, efficient, accurate and accountable manner.
The declaration of the false “outcome” of the presidential election contravened
the cardinal principles of Article 81(e)(iii) of the constitution as read together.
His petition adds that immediately before the declaration of the result of the
presidential election, four (4) out of the total seven (7) Commissioners of the 1 st
Respondent comprising the majority, publicly and categorically disowned the
result declared by the 2 nd Respondent.
That tally and count in the aforesaid 27 constituencies would have affected the
outcome of the presidential election. Before declaring the final result, the 2 nd
Respondent did not state or claim that result was provisional in contravention of
section 39 of elections Act, if at all the results were provisional.
That at the time of declaring the result of the presidential election, the 1 st
Respondent had not received, uploaded and made publicly available for scrutiny
on the public IEBC portal, Forms 34A in the 27 constituencies.
That final result declared by the 1 st Respondent was therefore not complete.
Accurate, verifiable or accountable and cannot be the basis for a valid and
That 2 nd Respondent without reason of justification willfully refused to share and
circulate the final presidential results with the “presidential candidates”. Chief
Agent, observers, media or even his fellow members of the Commissioners before
declaring the decision of the 1 st Respondent (IEBC), on tallying and verification,
making the final announcement and declaration of the “Result” unverifiable,
unaccountable and unconstitutional.
That the public declaration by the Commissioners of the 1 st Respondent whose
further duty was to tally and verify the result before declaration, admitted and
declared that the process was opaque and they disowned the result.
That the final “result” declared by the 2 nd Respondent did not comply with the
Constitution and the law and was therefore illegal, invalid, null and void abiniio.
That 2 nd Respondent in isolation and by himself in contravention of Article 138(c)
purported to tally and verify the results reading to the final result declared. Such
tallying and verification, if any, was a nullity ab inito and did not constitute
compliance with the Constitution’s mandatory requirements.
That unilateral action by the 2 nd Respondent removed all checks and balances and
destroyed the “appropriate structures and mechanism to eliminate electoral
malpractices” in violation of Article 86(d) as read with Article 10(2)(a) &(c), 88(4)
and (5); 138(3)(c) of the constitution; together with section 5(1) and 8 and 2 nd
schedule (paras 5&7) of IEBC Act,2011.
The Court of Appeal in Independent Electoral & Boundaries v Maina Kiai & 5
others (2017) eKLR while interpreting the role of the 1 st Respondent in the tallying
and verification of result of presidential election held that:
“Article 138 deals with events at the polling stations where votes are counted,
tallied verified and declared, we hold further that reference to the appellant in
sub Article (3)(c) is not to be construed to mean the chairperson, but rather, the
returning officers who are mandated, after counting the votes in the polling
stations, to tally and verify the count and declare the result.
The appellant, as opposed to its chairperson, upon receipt of prescribed forms
containing tabulated results for election of president electronically transmitted to
it forms the near 40,000 polling stations, is required to tally and verify the result
received at the national tallying center without interfering with the figures and
details of the outcome of the vote as received from the constituency tallying
At the very tail end of this process, in Article 138(10) the chairperson then
declares the result of the presidential election, and delivers a written notification
of the result to the Chief Justice and to the incumbent president, Raila Odinga
Lack of transparency
The petitioners contend that the 1 st Respondent’s Commissioner’s collapsed
Tower of Babel was the final outcome of the following preceding facts that
further demonstrate the lack of transparency, accountability, verifiable, and
efficiency which are complained of and which preceded the impugned declaration
by the 2 nd Respondent.
The unexplained and suspicious stoppage of the public display of running results
at the National Tallying Center at Bomas of Kenya on 13 August 2022 at or about
At the said stoppage time, the following were the public displayed results which
the petitioner’s Chief Agent was closely monitoring: Raila Odinga counties with
pulus 25% total votes 2,061,909 54.30%, Ruto William Samoei 28 with 1,708,801
54.00%, Wajackoyah George Luchiri 0 with 17,770 0.46%, Waihiga David Mwaure
0 with 8,725 0.22%.
Electronic received Forms 24A: 46,205 OF 46,229 (99.94%) VERIFIED Forms 34A:
12,204 of 46,229, registered voters; 5,762,180, turnout in reported polling
The 1 st Respondent therefore never resumed the public display of results at the
National Tallying Center and petitioners, agents and other observers had no way
or means of auditing, tallying what was happening at the National Tallying Center
results received and or computed by the 1 st and 2 nd Respondents.
Prior to Kenya presidential election, Black Star News Correspondent observed the
statement from Chairperson Chebukati before election, during their meeting with
Religious leaders telling Kenyans that whoever disagreed with election results
should go to court of law instead of going to the streets.
This was preparing Kenyans that election results were biased, and Now William
Ruto telling Kenyans that there is nothing, which means they are preparing the
court to be compromised.
