The vice chair of the IEBC, Juliana Cherera, who yesterday caused the other three commissioners to disagree on the final results in Chebukati, has now claimed that the results were altered.
Speaking to the media this afternoon, Cherena claimed that the four presidential candidates' combined percentage exceeded 100%. She asserted that the extra 0.01% after the votes are added together translates to 140,000 votes, which helped Dp Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua win the election.
The final presidential results were significantly affected by the 0.01%, which corresponds to 142,000 votes. "The aggregate of the percentages of the results scored by the 4 presidential contenders exceeded the 100% level," Julianna Cherera remarked.
Cherera and the other three commissioners yesterday disputed the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati's final findings, arguing that the tallying procedure lacked openness since it was inherently opaque.
This occurs while the nation waits for Raila Odinga to take an important step that will change the course of the nation.
