Githu Muigai: The Petitioners Disregarded The Case's Foundational Data, Which Is Numbers

Githu Muigai, a former attorney general who now serves as the IEBC's principal attorney, along with chairman Wafula Chebukati, commissioners Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu, have accused the petitioners of ignoring statistics and instead making generalizations without providing proof.

Muigai claims that the IEBC and its chairman strictly followed the law when conducting the elections on August 9, 2022.In accordance with the court's 2017 directives, the IEBC revised its processes. Muigai informed the jury.

Because the case had no legal loopholes, Muigai urged the petitioners who believed the August 9 election was fundamentally wrong to provide evidence.

The petitioners would be regarded to be advocating for the annulment of the entire process, in Muigai's opinion, because it revealed problems in the complete process, including procurement.Muigai questioned the proceedings' character further, asserting that they were exclusively based on affidavits, despite the fact that some of the witnesses who had signed them were unavailable for cross-examination while making absurd allegations. He claimed that the peculiar behavior of how candidates accept winning or losing an election was the driving force behind the petition.

Election observer reports that stated the election was free and fair were used by Muigai to support his argument. Muigai continued by charging the petitioners with relying solely on assumptions without supporting documentation.

"The petitions contain serious criminal accusations. All of that, especially in regards to the honorable Chebukati, is unsupported by any proof whatsoever. This chairman has been disparaged beyond belief.
