Cumulatively, in all the polling stations where no Wiper agent appended their signatures, the votes cast were 84,664, Mr Nguma told the court.

Mr Nguma, who was being cross-examined by Dr Malombe’s lawyer Apollo Muinde, also confirmed that 120 forms did not have IEBC stamps.

Ms Ngilu will take the witness stand on Thursday.

VOTES CAST

The forms lacking IEBC stamps were three in Mwingi North, four in Mwingi Central, 17 in Mwingi West, 27 in Kitui West and a similar number in Kitui Central, 24 in Kitui East, 14 in Kitui Rural and four in Kitui South.

He also admitted that in several polling stations, the number of votes cast exceeded the number of registered voters.

The witness further admitted that there were errors and alterations in some of the forms but they were insignificant. “It is true your honour that there were errors in some stations,” he said.

Dr Malombe challenged Ms Ngilu’s win claiming that his agents were kicked out of the polling stations and there was intimidation and bribery of voters.

The hearing continues today with Ms Ngilu expected to take the witness stand.
