In the 2017 general election, Raila Odinga and his then NASA coalition insisted that they would mount their own parallel tallying centres. They claimed that they wanted to make sure that their votes would not be stolen but at the end, it almost caused chaos because their alleged results were completely different from those of Wafula Chebukati's IEBC.
For that reason, as much as it is good for the parallel tallying centres to be operated by different groups, it can end up causing chaos if the difference groups get different results and thus, temperatures have been raised high in the country today after Kenyans woke up to details of what Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto are planning to do in August 9th 2022 general election.
According to the Daily Nation, Wafula Chebukati's IEBC has given any interested parties an okay to mount their own parallel tallying centres. With that move, both Raila and Ruto and planning to take that chance but how things will end is what is worrying Kenyans.
