The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairman Wafula Chebukati has finally reacted to the claims that were made by the four commissioners at Serena Hotel. On Monday before the final declaration of the presidential election results the IEBC Vice-chairperson Juliana Cherera and three other commissioners disowned the results prior to the announcement. The following day Juliana Cherera, Francis Mathenge Wanderi, Irene Cherop Masit and Justus Abongo Nyang'anya converted a presser at the same venue and said that they disowned the results because of the opaque nature in which the tallying was done in the last phase.
They also cited that Chebukati did not involve them in the final process ans that their was a problem in the manner the final tally was made. They said that the percentage that was given by Chebukati was wrong as it exceeded the total of a hundred percent. Juliana Cherera also said that there were some constituencies in which the results were not announced. The four commissioners also claimed that there were certain votes that were missing and were not counted for. However, following their claims Chebukati has criticised them and said that the four commissioners wanted to force a re-run contrary to their oath of office.
