Man Accused of Hacking IEBC Servers in 2017 Currently Leading DP Ruto's Team of IT Experts

Mr. Davis Chirchir, former Energy and Petroleum Cabinet Secretary, leads the IT professionals in the camp of Deputy President William Ruto. Chirchir was also the director of information technology at the disbanded IIEC.

Mr. Chirchir left the Energy and Petroleum portfolio in 2015 after being fired for corruption by President Uhuru Kenyatta. He was accused of seeking millions in exchange for vote paper production contracts from British companies.

In 2017, the Jubilee party selected him as the president's top agent. Raila Odinga, leader of the Orange Democratic Movement, accused Chirchir of hacking IEBC servers and tampering with the transmission of election results after the election.

The vice president, William Ruto, is relying on Chirchir, who is also his chief of staff, to preserve and monitor Kenya Kwanza's votes now that the IEBC is digitizing everything.
