The National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, has rubbished reports by the international election observers that gave kenyan election a clean bill of health.
Raila who is trailing President Uhuru Kenyatta by more than 1.5 million votes in the tally being streamed on the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) portal, said the international election observers’ free and fair poll verdict lacks depth.
Zipo.co.ke has been updating you with results from the Tuesday, August 8 poll which has consistently showed Raila losing to Uhuru. As of now, Friday, August 11, 2017 at 12:06pm, Uhuru has garnered 8,173,102 (54.25%) while Raila trails behind with 6,759,156 (44.86%). 40,547 out of 40,883 polling stations have reported their numbers.
Nasa has already rejected the provisional results saying a Jubilee Party hacker interfered with the results. That they skewed them to favour Uhuru.
Barely hours after Nasa raised the claims, a group of international election observers, including AU’s which is headed by former South African President Thabo Mbeki as well as the UE, Commonwealth and Elog’s, returned a fair and credible verdict on the elections urging Raila to accept the outcome.
Raila was interviewed by CNN on Thursday, August 10, where he took a swipe at the international observers. He said that they are avoiding going to look at the underbelly of his claims.
“Observers are only concerned with the cosmetic aspects of the election,” he told the giant media.
When asked in the interview whether he had evidence of his rigging claims, Raila said they produced evidence coming from a printout of an IEBC server which is 52 pages strong.
He has said that he will only speak after being declared President.
