Fireworks At The Supreme Court As Orengo, Githu clash over Jose Camargo Issue

Prof. Githu Muigai, lead counsel for the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), and James Orengo, lead counsel for Raila Odinga, clashed during the afternoon session of the presidential election petition at the Supreme Court over the matter of the forms bearing the name of Venezuelan Jose Camargo.

The new evidence presented by Raila Odinga's legal team in the earlier session on Friday about the Venezuelan national was central to the dispute. During the morning session, attorney Julie Soweto displayed what she claimed to be a registration form bearing Mr. Camargo's name at Gacharaigo Primary School in Murang'a County.

"From where I am, the IEBC stamp is looking like it has been superimposed over another stamp. We have been asked to show how the figures change. If we look at the votes cast, the first figure is for Raila Odinga 55, Ruto 260, Mwaure 1, and Wajackoyah 0. If we sum up the total votes we get 316. The total votes cast as per this form is 321. Different from what we have seen. Which means by calculation there is already a problem," she said.
