President Ruto has no key to any server, Ichung’wa tells Raila
Leader of the Majority Party in the National Assembly, Kimani Ichung’wa, has told off the Azimio la Umoja – One Kenya Coalition over their demand for the opening and scrutiny of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) server.
The Kikuyu Constituency MP said the elections are over and that both the IEBC and the Supreme Court made their pronouncement on the outcome.
The calls to open the IEBC server are among the demands that the opposition has placed as one of the conditions that want the government to meet, alleging that the server will reveal the Azimio presidential candidate in last year’s elections, Mr Raila Odinga, emerged victorious.
But Mr Ichung’wa has said neither President William Ruto nor his deputy Rigathi Gachagua have the key to the server.

“For those who are looking for servers to be opened, William Ruto has no key to any server, and Rigathi Gachagua has no key to any server. We were done with the elections and it was finished,” Ichung’wa said.
He added that the Kenya Kwanza administration has only one key, which is to open the economy of the country.
The MP also lauded the European Union Embassies and High Commissions in Kenya for endorsing the outcome of the polls.
“The election was concluded, and even the international community they said was silent has affirmed that fact. The only keys they have, the only servers they can open is to work to reopen our economy, to ensure that the economy that is so dilapidated gets back to its right foot,” Ichung’wa said.

He spoke on Thursday in Nairobi during a consultative meeting with stakeholders from various sectors, including the National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (Nacada).
Mr Ichung’wa has been on the receiving end for remarks he made about farms belonging to retired President Uhuru Kenyatta before armed goons on Monday invaded one of the retired head of state’s farms and made away with hundreds of livestock.
The police only arrived at the scene 24 hours later, a delay that Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki attributed to Azimio protests, which saw police officers deployed to various areas.
