Cherera reveals why they disowned the presidential results

The four individuals led by chairperson Juliana Cherera was called in order to contest the outcomes declared by Wafula Chebukati, chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

They claimed that although the general elections on August 9 were managed as efficiently as possible, the last stage of results verification was opaque.

At the hurriedly scheduled news briefing at Serena Hotel, she was joined by fellow commissioners Irene Masit, Justus Nyangaya, and Francis Wanderi.

Despite promising to release a thorough statement later, Cherera declined to answer any questions from the media. Cherera explained the following reasons why they decline results:

1. The aggregation of the percentages of the results scored by the four presidential candidates as declared by Chebukati presented to them were mathematical absurdity.

2. The results announced did not indicate the total number of registered voters, cast or rejected votes. In this regard, the results announced by Chebukati lacked a critical ingredient; the total number of valid votes cast to support the percentages scored by the 4 candidates.
