This emerges barely two weeks after Ruto's former private office at Transnational Plaza within Nairobi Central Business District was raided by cybercrime officers following the tipped information that the presidential hopeful had hosted servers purportedly meant to execute rigging of Tuesday poll.

The cybercrime officers seized two servers from Ruto's former private office although claimed that they were procured by insurance company to host 18 mobile data details of the members.

Earlier on, Three Venezuelans were arrested at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport with election materials. The investigations agency identified the three as Jose Gregorio Camargo Castellanos, Joel Gustavo Rodriguez Garcia and Salvador Javier Sosa Suarez.

In dramatic turn of events, detectives said that upon Investigations, it was established that the Venezuelans contracts did not clearly indicate that they were employees of IEBC or Smartmatic International Holding B.V as claimed earlier by IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati.

Smartmatic was contracted by the IEBC to supply and install Kenya Integrated Election Management System (Kiems) that is used in transmission of electoral results from polling stations to the main center.
