In the 72-page petition, the former Prime Minister alleged that none of the four Presidential candidates in the August 9 elections had achieved the 50 percent plus one vote threshold.
Raila’s legal team further claimed that they have evidence that IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati fraudulently gave William Ruto 217,631 extra votes to ensure that he slightly crossed the 50% plus one vote threshold required to win the presidency.
According to Chebukati, Ruto polled 7, 176, 141 votes against Raila’s 6, 942, 930 votes.
As such, Ruto exceeded the 50 percent plus one vote threshold by 69,000 votes.
Raila went ahead and said that Chebukati divided the 217,631 votes to nearly all the 47 counties with Murang’a being the highest.
Kivumbi.co.ke has compiled a list of counties where President Uhuru Kenyatta’s handshake partner believes Chebukati stole the votes in favor of William Ruto.
County number of votes
- Murang’a 33, 055
- Nakuaru 30,870
- Narok 31,653
- Kericho 14,244
- Bomet 15,061
- Bungoma 3,342
- Busia 2,979
- Siaya 13
- Kisumu 125
- Marsabit 1,157
- Turkana 10,340
- Samburu 5, 056
- Trans Nzoia 13, 423
Further, Raila argues that the discrepancies in Forms 34A, 34B, and Form 34C “vary to an extent that the numbers cannot be verified.”
The former Prime Minister further stated that the voter turnout and the final number of votes do not rhyme.
“The voter turnout and the results of the presidential results announced by Chebukati are not accurate nor are they verifiable,” Raila said.
It is suspected that UDA agent Geoffrey Koech colluded with Chebukati at the Bomas of Kenya (the National Tallying Center) to manipulate the results.
A report by the Star Newspaper established that a forensic audit by the DCI showed that a laptop belonging to Koech was connected to an external IP address where Forms 34A were being temporarily downloaded and then re-uploaded to the IEBC portal through an application for sharing data.
