"Kimeumana" Chebukati Speaks Moments After Declined To Open Servers.

Wafula Chebukati, the chairman of the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC), has finally clarified the situation hours after reports surfaced that he had refused to allow the Azimio team access to servers so they could examine and recount votes for 15 polling places as required by the Supreme Court.

Chebukati has now confirmed online that the servers have been opened for the Raila-led Azimio La Umoja camp in collaboration with a legal team dispatched by the Supreme Court and the agents of President-elect William Ruto to carry out the procedure.

"The Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission has provided access to the parties to view the servers following the Supreme Court ruling, and the scrutiny exercise is ongoing," he said.

As part of the investigation that will support their evidence in the ongoing election appeal, Raila's legal team had required that they conduct a recount of ballots in the specified number of polling places. The petition is being heard for the first time today, and it will continue throughout this week before a decision is reached. Chief Justice Martha Koome stated that the final decision would be made public on Monday of the following week.
