In Summary
  • Dr Kidero added that 211 Forms 37A affecting more than 90,090 votes were not signed by presiding officers.

Former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero on Monday said more than 60 percent of Forms 37A used to declare Mr Mike Sonko winner in the August 8 election had irregularities.

According to court papers filed by his lawyer Tom Ojienda, some forms had multiple anomalies, others lacked poll station tallies while some did not have security features, “with all the inconsistencies affecting more than 308,918 votes”.

In a sworn affidavit, Dr Kidero said among 798 of the 1,300 Forms 37A, some were not signed by party agents and presiding officers, others had varied dates while some were not stamped.

The former governor filed an application in the High Court on Friday, seeking to be enjoined as an interested party in a case filed by Mr Japhet Muroko challenging Mr Sonko’s election.

Dr Kidero detailed the stations where the anomalies reportedly occurred, their code, stream, constituency and number of votes affected.

According to him, the votes were enough to tilt the outcome of the election.

Mr Sonko was declared winner with 869,050 votes against Dr Kidero’s 695,770.
