Thousands of Kenyans Rally Behind Opposition Claim to Presidency

NAIROBI – Thousands of people took to the streets of Kenyan cities on Thursday to support the opposition’s demand that challenger Raila Odinga be proclaimed the winner of this week’s presidential election.

The National Super Alliance (NASA) said that an anonymous member of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) revealed that IEBC had manipulated the results to give a 700,000-vote advantage to the current head of state, Uhuru Kenyatta.

Minutes after the NASA statement, thousands of people began gathering peacefully on the streets of major Nairobi suburbs such as Mathare and Kibera amid a substantial police presence, Kenyan media said.

“The results being published by IEBC through their national tallying center are a fraud based on a hacked system,” NASA spokesperson Musalia Mudavadi said. “We have received further information furnishing us with results from IEBC data. The results show Raila garnered 8.4 million votes and Uhuru 7.7 million.”

“We demand that Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka be declared president and vice president immediately,” he continued.

Mudavadi asked Kenyans to remain calm in what he described as a critical situation.

He added that NASA had formally presented the competent authorities a letter detailing all detected electoral irregularities.
