Alai now blames Raila for existence of fake voters in IEBC register

Controversial blogger Robert Alai has blamed Nasa flag bearer Raila Odinga for existence of fake names in the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission voter register.

Alai says he actually hates Mr Odinga for the development.

“Many fake names in the register. That’s why I hate Raila. Why did our young me die if this was not sorted? We can’t sacrifice young people for no reason. Who has ID number 66 and 11?” he posed on Facebook.

On Thursday, the integrity of the August general election was questioned after hawk-eyed Kenyans discovered major errors with the newly launched SMS voter verification platform.


What is baffling, though, is the fact that random numbers drew details of registered voters. For instance, ID number 0 is registered under Stanley Gitari Mucira at Rwambati Primary school in Baragwi ward, Kirinyaga County.

IEBC owned to the mistake and promised to fix it.

A former fanatic of the opposition leader in the past elections, Alai has become Mr Odinga’s sworn critic ahead of the 2017 general election.

He has in fact claimed that president Uhuru Kenyatta will win by a landslide in the coming election.

Mr Odinga led the demonstrations last year calling for the resignation of IEBC commissioners who oversaw the 2013 election.

A number of people died during the street demos.
