NASA leader Raila Odinga has painted an image for the Supreme Court of a coordinated plan to rig elections, disclosing cases of what he terms as a massive pattern of vote manipulation.
Raila says in his petition,filed on Friday,that Uhuru’s votes were consistently inflated while his votes were systematically reduced in an elaborate scheme to ensure Uhuru won.
The opposition chief claims he lost up to 500 votes in a single poling station, giving the example of Tonye Primary, Migori County.
“In Form 34A submitted by the Petitioner’s agent in respect of Tonye Primary Polling Station, North Kamagambo, indicates that Odinga Raila had 561 while in Form 34B he had 2 votes only!” an affidavit by Nyangasi Oduwo, Economic Adviser to Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho, states.
In another example, Raila alleges that according to Forms 34A submitted by his agents in respect to Memba Primary in his Siaya backyard, he garnered 437 votes.
However, according to results captured in the IEBC Forms 34B, he only had 17 votes.
NASA also describes how county commissioners acted as Jubilee chief agents in some Mount Kenya regions in a clear breach of the Constitution.
In documents tabled before the seven-member Bench Supreme Court Judges, the Opposition also narrates how voters were openly issued with more than one Presidential ballot papers in Jubilee bastions.
“At Karurumo Polytechnic, Kieni South, the NASA agent noted and raised complaints on voters being given between 2 and 3 Presidential ballot papers. At one time, the NASA agent confronted the voter and clerk and witnessed that the voter had 8 ballot papers,” a startling affidavit by NASA presidential chief agent for Embu County Moses Wamuru states.
Wamuru claims that at Ngurueru Primary, in Runyenjes constituency, Presidential ballot papers run out at 4pm but voting for other seats was not stopped.
“The Presiding Officer instructed the clerks to only give the votes for governor, Senate and other lower seats, and ignore the Presidential ballots since they were finished,” Wamuru states in the affidavit that forms part of the 25,000-paged documents filed by NASA on Friday.
“When our agents complained, he was threatened to be chased out and was told that the ballots were enough.”
NASA has sought to prove that more people were allowed to illegally participate in the Presidential poll on Uhuru’s side.
The Opposition claims their calculation indicates that the total Presidential votes cast exceeded those of other elective positions of Governor and Members of the National Assembly by over 500,000 votes.
In Amabiria Primary School, also Kisii County, Raila claims Uhuru garnered 138 votes as captured in Form 34A. However, in results captured in Forms 34B of the same polling station, Uhuru’s votes had been inflated to 238.
The Gusii region was perceived to be an Opposition stronghold, but Uhuru pulled a surprise and beat Raila in Nyamira and performed exceptionally well in Kisii County.
According to Raila, after his agents were kicked out, mostly in perceived Jubilee strongholds, Presiding Officers were caused to fill what he termed as fictitious results in Uhuru’s favour.
Having reviewed and reconciled the forms 34A and B supplied by the IEBC, Raila concludes, against the similar forms obtained from our agents, the ODM leader says he has discovered that the Presidential results have massive numerical discrepancies that fundamentally affected the final result to his disadvantage.
The Opposition top brass had claimed that data contained in the IEBC servers indicated that he trounced Uhuru by over a million votes.
Amani National Congress boss Musalia Mudavadi said Raila was leading by 8,041,726 against Uheuru’s 7,755,428.
However, Uhuru was declared winner, having garnered 8,203,290 votes against Raila’s 6,762,224.
