Nasa to move to court to ‘stop Uhuru swearing in’

Nasa is planning to move to court on Wednesday to stop the announcement and subsequent swearing in of President Uhuru Kenyatta as the winner in the August 8, 2017 presidential election, Nairobi News understands.

At a press conference, President Kenyatta’s main challenger in the elections, Raila Odinga rejected the results and urged the Nasa supporters do as such saying the elections were marred with massive irregularities.

He said the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) figures that show President Uhuru leading by about 1.4 million votes is a tragedy of monumental proportions and do not reflect the will of the people.


“What the IEBC has posted is a complete fraud. They gave Uhuru the results that were not cast,” Mr Odinga, who was accompanied by his running mate Mr Kalonzo Musyoka, chairman campaign secretariat Mr Musalia Mudavadi and Siaya Senator James Orengo and Mr Johnstone Muthama, the outgoing Machakos Senator.

Nairobi News has established that Nasa’s alternate chief agent Mr Orengo, who is poised to retain his Siaya senatorial seat, is working on the application.

The Nasa case is premised on the allegations that the IEBC server was hacked into to manipulate the outcome in favour of President Kenyatta.

According to the documents that Nasa leaders presented to the media, the hackers gained entry the election database through the identity of Chris Msando, the IEBC ICT acting manager who was murdered in mysterious circumstances a week ago into the account of IEBC chairman Mr Wafula Chebukati.

The constitution grants IEBC seven days to declare the presidential election results.
