Raila Odinga rejects results

Opposition leader Raila Odinga has rejected preliminary presidential results as released by the electoral commission.

He termed the results that saw him trail Uhuru Kenyatta by more than one million votes as “sham, fictitious and fake”.

Mr Odinga said the results were the “work of a computer” and did not reflect the will of voters, a claim denied by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.

He asked IEBC to provide forms 34A and 34B to help verify the outcome.

He spoke moments after his chief agent Musalia Mudavadi and Nasa lawyer James Orengo made similar claims at Bomas of Kenya.

Mr Orengo said forms 34A and 34B should be the basis of the results but the commission was just keying in results without scanning the forms as required.

“It beats common sense for those results to be admitted. The results announced at the polling station are final,” he said.

But CEO Ezra Chiloba said the results being displayed at the national tallying centre have been transmitted from the constituencies after scanning Form 34B.

“We urge Kenyans to be patient as we continue to tallying and relaying the results,” he said.
