"Why We Rejected Presidential Results,"Four Commissioners Speak Up In A Press Conference

The four IEBC commissioners who rejected the presidential election results on Monday explained their decision today in a press conference held at the Serena hotel in Nairobi.

The commissioners stated in a press statement read by chairperson Juliana Cherera on Tuesday at the Serena Hotel that the aggregation of the percentages of the results was a mathematical absurdity that defied logic.

They claimed that the sum of the percentages of votes cast for each of the four presidential candidates exceeded 100%.

"This summation gives us a total of 100.01 per cent. This translates to approximately 142,000 votes which will make a significant difference in the final results," Cherera said. 

Furthermore, they claimed that the 0.01 reflects votes upto 142,000 which could be a significant in swinging the presidential tally.

They also claimed that Chebukati never declared the results of the remaining 28 constituencies and thus they won't associate themselves to those results.
