Great Win Expected For Dp Ruto As He Hires "The IT Gurus" To Represent Him Come August GE

Deputy President William Ruto, who is running on a Kenya Kwanza ticket, and his main challenger, Raila Odinga, who is under by the Azimio coalition, have each hired two leading information technology gurus to assist them in ascending to the House on the Hill in light of the confirmation that the upcoming General Election will be dependent on technology.

Mr. Davies Chirchir, who was previously the chief Jubilee Party agent, is now acting as DP Ruto's representative.

During the election process in 2017, he also served as President Uhuru Kenyatta's representative at the national tallying center.

The individual in charge of information and communications technology (ICT) for team Azimio is Mr. George Njoroge, who is the chief executive officer and managing director of East African Data Handlers.

The IT experts in each camp have been given specific missions to complete in order to deliver victory back to their respective camps.

Chief of Staff in the Office of the Deputy President, Mr. Chirchir received his Bachelor of Science from the University of Nairobi and his Master of Business Administration from the Royal Holloway, University of London.

The International Society of Forensic Computer Examiners has Mr. Njoroge among its ranks (ISFCE). He graduated from the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology with a degree in Information and Communication Technology and an MBA in International Business.

Mr. Chirchir has extensive experience of electoral problems thanks to his previous position as head of information and communications technology at the Interim Independent Electoral Commission (IIEC), the forerunner of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The DP's team is counting on him to not only provide the goods, but also to keep the electronic voting, transmission, and tabulation processes secure.

Odinga has already accused Davis Chirchir of trying to sway the election. Chirchir is rumored to inspire terror among the Azimio populace.

Even though Mr. Chirchir rarely interacts with the media in his day-to-day role as a civil servant, his aides have indicated that he is prohibited from discussing the matter in detail. Being in front of a computer is where he feels most comfortable.
