Last week, an alleged anonymous whistleblower from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) claimed that Raila Odinga won the 2022 presidential elections.
According to the whistleblower, the IEBC, under the command of Chairman Wafula Chebukati, Commissioners Abdi Guliye and Boya Molu, and CEO Marjan Hussein, provided fabricated information to the Kenyans.
As such, Jubilee Secretary general Jeremiah Kioni on Wednesday, January 18, cited these documents alleging that Raila Odinga garnered 8,170,353 votes representing 57.3 percent while William Ruto garnered 5,915,973 representing 41.66 percent.
“We’ve seen that 59 percent of the constituencies with absolute certainty. What can be verified is, Raila Odinga won the elections with 8, 170,355 votes representing 57.53 percent of the total votes cast. Ruto got 5, 915,973 representing 41.66 percent,” Kioni stated.
However, a section of Kenya Kwanza leaders dismissed the whistle-blowers’ vote-rigging claims.
Led by Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, President William Ruto’s allies wondered the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party did not use the whistle-blowers’ evidence at the Supreme Court to nullify Ruto’s presidential win.
“Where was this whistleblower when the matters were in the Supreme Court?” Mudavadi questioned.
However, the Jubilee spokesperson Jeremiah Kioni on Wednesday, January 25, revealed why Raila’s coalition did not use the whistle-blower’s report at the apex court.
In a report by Kenyans.co.ke the former Ndaragua Member of Parliament noted that the whistleblowers presented them with new evidence months after President William Ruto was sworn into office.
“By the time we were going to court, remember we had only 14 days and so the time was so short. For a whistleblower to put something on the table that convinces people, it takes time and it has taken him that amount of time,” Jeremiah Kioni noted.
