The four people disputed the results of the presidential election on August 9 and promised to explain in detail what happened when the votes were counted.
She said that Chebukati's calculations showed that they had a total of 100.01 percent, and that 0.01 percent is equal to 142,000 votes, which would make a big difference in how the election turned out.
Cherera said that the source of the numbers that were counted was not completely accurate, so they did not accept the results.
She said that the results were missing a key part that showed the total number of votes cast because they didn't show the total number of registered voters, voters who cast ballots, and rejected ballots.
"The percentage shows how much all the numbers add up to." The answer was 50.49 because 7.7 million Ruto is equal to 50.49 percent. Be aware that Chebukati says that Raila got 25% of the vote in 34 counties while Ruto got 25% of the vote in 39 counties. Which numbers made up the variables for the percentages? "Cherera was happy."
We came to the conclusion that it wasn't clear how Ruto's Form 34 C was made. "We want to make it clear that Chebukati's election results are his own and do not represent the IEBC," she said, citing the Maina Kiai case, which the Supreme Court upheld in 2017.
The commissioners did not know that the tallying was being done by technical staff, and Chebukati did not explain the results, even though questions were asked.
"When Wafula Chebukati announced the results, verification from certain constituencies had not been announced," Cherera said.
Justus Wanderi, an IEBC commissioner, said that the tallying was not done by the commissioners but by the technical team, which gave the data to the commissioners at 4:30 pm.
As the law requires, he said that there was no way to check.
