Finer Details Have Reportedly Emerged on How August Ninth Polls Were Tampered With

August ninth general elections in Kenya wee generally peaceful despite Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition party's canditate, Raila Amolo Odinga disputing the outcome of the presidential contest. The Independent Electoral And Boundaries Commission Chairman, Wafula Chebukati jade announced William Samoei Ruto as the fith President-elect.

The move didn't auger well with the Azimio brigade which read malice in the same with a section of IEBC being accused of subverting the true will of the Kenyan electorates.

Raila and his team had maintained that they won fairly and squarely and that IEBC only conspired with the Kenya Kwanza Alliance to hand them the victory.

Push for justice resulted in Azimio petitioning the presidential results at the Supreme Court of Kenya only for the Apex court to uphold Ruto's win. It was indeed another blow for the Raila-led outfit.

Since then, Raila and a section of his Azimio brigade, have maintained that they won fairly and that they don't recognize Ruto as the fifth President of the Republic of Kenya. Raila has even promised Kenyans that sooner, naked truth about what transpired in the August ninth polls will conspicuosly emerge.

And to spice up Raila's assertions, a report seen by the Star Newspaper on Saturday has revealed that IEBC technology was tampered with.

This latest development is likely to open a fresh lid on the controversies sorrounding the August ninth general elections. More to follow shortly.
