Having worked in the IT field for at least five years, I can confidently report that the Star News Online Presidential Tally was invalidated in less than 60 minutes after the media outlet declared Deputy President William Ruto as the leading presidential candidate with 7 million votes against Raila's 6.9 million votes.
Upon visiting the site at 14:40, we saw that it was displaying an error notice, suggesting that a crucial file responsible for displaying the user's front-end application is missing.
In addition, the error message continues to inform the user that the site is now unavailable or in maintenance mode.
If you are a regular user of this website and have no idea what this page is about, the site is presently unavailable for maintenance. The Error Report
Who would have the audacity to take down such an important website for maintenance purposes during the Presidential election? Why did the celebrity not inform Kenyans about the supposed maintenance?
