RAILA ODINGA gives condition to accept defeat by President UHURU KENYATTA

Saturday August 12, 2017-The National Alliance (NASA) Presidential candidate Raila Odinga has agreed to concede defeat by President Uhuru Kenyatta but only if the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) agrees to its demand.

Speaking at Bomas of Kenya, Raila, through his Chief Agent Musalia Mudavadi, said they will only accept the results after they are satisfied that they are the authentic Presidential poll results and nothing more or less.

He asked the IEBC not to release the official results since there was a lot of anomalies that needed to be dealt with first.

Similar sentiments were echoed by James Orengo who demanded that IEBC gives them access to its servers to verify if the results released by the commission are the once in the servers and Raila would accept defeat.

“IEBC should open the servers for us to see the raw data of scanned forms 34A and B and we will accept if we lose,” Orengo said.

The Kenyan DAILY POST

  1. 54% Kenyans have accepted the results. They are the majority. 2 people cannot stop the country from moving forward. In fact they should be sued for having illegal tallying centers and hiring illegal immigrants to work for them without work permits.

  2. There is no justification for NASA to cast doubt at the results IEBC released as the official votes as tallied and verified by IEBC. All the presidential candidates had agents representing their interests and protecting their votes. These are the people who were at the scene of the voting at all the polling stations that count to over 40,800. This is where the Form 34A emanates from after the counting and the preciding official fills in the number of votes scored by each candidate. The agents agree with the numbers and sign off the Form 34A. Those who might refuse to do so, are within their right and a note to that effect is entered in Form 34A. The presiding then scans the Form 34A and sends it electronically to the local constituency for the returning officer to compile all Form 34As into one Form 34 B which is transmitted to the IEBC National Talling Center. It's from these Form 34 Bs the final totals for the presidential candidates. Mark you all, the agents at polling stations all get copies of Form 34 A to submit to their party units. NASA just needed to obtain Forms 34 As from all its agents and use it to compare with what is uploaded in the IEBC electoral portal. Thus not recket science and need not be a contentious matter. In any case, Form 34 As have the final scores according to the court of appeal decision. The hacking claims cast doubts about the integrity of the vote electroinc management system. If all these hacking story NASA is spreading has any truth, then why does NASA want to access the server to check that there is no data manipulation. It's very unlikely any way for IEBC to open its server to strangers who may mess with it.
