In Summary

  • It was the basis on which Nasa’s agents, Mr Musalia Mudavadi and Mr James Orengo, walked out of the Bomas of Kenya.

  • The dossier claims the existence of a non-gazetted polling station.

Nasa’s technical team has presented a dossier to IEBC in which it claims there were discrepancies in the presidential results transmission from polling stations to the national tallying centre.

The five-page document was handed over to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission on Friday.

It was the basis on which the coalition’s agents, Mr Musalia Mudavadi and Mr James Orengo, walked out of the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi, accusing the commission of disregarding their concerns over the conduct of the elections.

The document raises questions on the authenticity of some of the forms 34A and 34B and the tallying of votes.

ALTERATION CLAIMS

In the report, Nasa also claims alteration of presidential results, the presence of non-gazetted polling stations and exaggeration of the number of voters in some regions.

Critical analysis

Saturday, Ms Ogla Karani, Mr Raila Odinga’s deputy chief agent who prepared the document, said the commission had only made available 29,000 forms 34As against the total of 40,883, which was the total number of gazetted polling stations.

“These discrepancies were detected through an audit of the documents made available to us by the commission.

"Our evidence is based on critical analysis of the information we have gathered from the commission’s portal in comparison to the results that were displayed, as well as copies of forms 34A and 34B we received from agents,” Ms Karani told Nation.

The document says a sample of form 34A received from Baringo Central Constituency indicates the total number of votes cast at the Cereals Board polling station stood at 376, while the total number of ballots rejected was the same figure — 376.

POLLING STATION

The dossier claims the existence of a non-gazetted polling station in the same constituency, named the AIC Visa Oshwal in Karbarnet. It further claims President Uhuru Kenyatta garnered 940 votes at this station against 194 for Mr Odinga.

“The challenge here is the threshold that requires no polling station to record more than 700 registered voters, but this station recorded over and above the legally allowed figure,” says the document.

According to the report, results from the Kiambiu Social Hall polling station in Kamukunji Constituency indicate that Mr Odinga garnered 414 votes against Mr Kenyatta’s 67.

However, those recorded on the IEBC portal show Mr Odinga having garnered 298 against Mr Kenyatta’s 118.

VOTES DEDUCTED

From this, Nasa says 116 votes were deducted from its candidate, while 51 were added to Mr Kenyatta.

The same situation, according to Nasa, was noted at the Nivansara Primary School polling station in Bomachoge Constituency, where results from agents indicate that Mr Odinga garnered 362 votes against Mr Kenyatta’s 89 votes.

However, the results on the portal show that Mr Odinga received 319 votes against 108 for the President.
