Kenyan Opposition leader, Raila Odinga, has strongly disputed the emerging presidential results which strongly angle towards a Uhuru Kenyatta victory.
Raila, while addressing a press the conference in Westlands on Wednesday, August 9, alleged that the entire electoral process has been largely compromised in favor of Jubilee.
According to the NASA leader, the compromise of the IEBC’s database began on Tuesday, August 8 at 12:37 p m.
He alleges that hackers used the identity of the late IEBC ICT manager Chris Msando to gain entry into the IEBC systems and “created errors in the IEBC code server”.
He further went on to claim that a significant amount of data , not just that of the presidential results, was tampered with by the hackers.
“The 2017 general elections was a fraud. In his words, Uhuru said in Turkana he did not need the voter numbers to win elections. The hacking has definitely affected the results of the 2017 general elections. It is a tragedy of monumental gravity,” He claimed
