In Summary

  • Lawyer Phillip Murgor says that there was a group of about 50 people who had access to the IEBC systems from Karen.
  • He further alleges that Wafula Chebukati's personal assistant had access to the IEBC servers yet he's was not gazetted.

Senior Counsel Phillip Murgor, one of the lawyers representing Raila Odinga and his running mate Martha Karua at the Supreme Court presidential petition, now says that a group of about 50 people was intercepting Form 34As and doctoring them before uploading them on the IEBC public portal.

In his submission on Wednesday, Murgor alleged that there was remote access of IEBC systems by strangers.

"There was a group of about 50 people in Karen who had access to IEBC ICT systems where they were intercepting results before they were uploaded in the public portal. We have evidence of downloading forms, changing figures, converting them then uploading them again.

"It shows that this election was controlled from everywhere except IEBC," Murgor argued.

Referring to the three Venezuelans arrested by DCI in July this year, Murgor said that several foreigners alongside Wafula Chebukati's personal assistant were granted unauthorised access to the IEBC servers.

"The personal assistant of Chebukati, Mr. Dickson Kwanusu, was granted access, but he is not gazetted. So he is invisible. If we had not brought the logs, it would never be known that he had access. Several foreigners were involved, and several involved as super administrators having powers to change, delete, modify amongst other access privileges," he added.

The lawyer further said that the IEBC technology was not only manipulated but also corrupted.

"The technology was so inherently corrupted, manipulated, and tainted that the results declared by Mr. Chebukati cannot be, in an objective case, said to be representative of the true will of the Kenyan people," Murgor said.
