Kenyan Opposition Insists Elections Were Fraudulent

NAIROBI – Kenya’s opposition coalition insisted on Friday that the recent elections were fraudulent and reiterated its demand that its leader be named president by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

The IEBC is expected to publish the results of Tuesday’s election later on Friday, though preliminary data suggests that current president Uhuru Kenyatta was the victor, having received around 54 percent of the vote.

The opposition National Super Alliance (NASA), led by Raila Odinga, contested the results, claiming on Wednesday that an anonymous source from the IEBC had told them that the electronic voting system had been tampered with, giving Kenyatta a 700,000-vote lead.

The hacking had allegedly been done using the identity of the late director of telecommunications for the IEBC, Chris Msando, who was found dead almost two weeks ago.

Police forces were deployed throughout the country on Friday amid fears of a wave of violence by Odinga’s supporters and following small protests in several cities after the vote.

John Mbadi, president of the Orange Democratic Movement – the NASA party that Odinga is a member of – asked in a press conference that Kenyans remain calm but vigilant over justice.
