Nairobi, KENYA: National Super Alliance has faulted Independent and Electoral commission on what it terms holding results clandestinely where its flag bearer Raila Odinga is leading against President Uhuru Kenyatta in the just concluded polls.

In a press briefing on Thursday evening ,led by Musalia Mudavadi, they  said that according to the IEBC server results the coalition accessed ,indicates that Odinga leads with 8,041726 votes while President Kenyatta garnered 7,755,428 votes.

Mudavadi said that based on the results they accessed their Flag bearer Odinga is supposed to be declared a winner in the 2017 presidential bid.

“Based on the foregoing, we demand that the IEBC Chairperson announce the presidential election results forthwith and declare Rt. Hon. Raila Amolo Odinga and HE. Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka as the duly elected President and Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya respectively. “Mudavadi said.

The coalition complained to the commission on displaying preliminary presidential results indicating that president Kenyatta has so far garnered 8,056,885 votes while Odinga garnered 6,659,493 votes.

“We have now received further information from confidential IEBC sources furnishing us with the actual presidential election results contained in their database. ” He said

” The data, which confirm the authentic and legitimate result of the presidential election, shows that the two leading candidates obtained the following votes,Raila Amolo Odinga 8,041726 votes
Uhuru Kenyatta 7,755,428 Votes.” He added.

In a quick rejoinder the commission indicated that those preliminary results are not official following the fact that the law requires the conmission to rely on form 34 A in determining the winner.

The coalition also accused some forces in hacking the IEBC website and tampering with the result and accusing the commission of failing to investigate the hacking of the system.

They want the commission to halt the process of announcing prelimary results forthewith.
