No Signs Of Manipulation Of Kenya Election - EU Observers

Kenya Elections

The former US secretary of state lost to George W. Bush in the 2004 USA presidential election by 35 Electoral College votes; the margin of victory was the slimmest ever recorded by a sitting president. Later in the day, Mr Odinga's National Super Alliance reiterated its claim that the elections had been hacked and that Mr Odinga had won with more than eight million votes.

10 de agosto de 2017, 08:41Nairobi, Aug 10 (Prensa Latina) European Union (EU) observer mission chief Marietje Schaake said today that ballot counting and ballot counts in Kenya were transparent.

A political analyst in Kenya says the lengthy wait for final results from Tuesday's disputed election could increase anxiety following opposition allegations of vote-rigging.

The East African Community Observer Mission in Kenya also appealed for patience as the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission finalises the verification of election results.

This is in sharp contrast to the claim by opposition leader, Raila Odinga that the process was manipulated and fraught with irregularities.

Kenya's election commission (IEBC) had on Wednesday dismissed claims by Odinga that its systems and website had been hacked to produce a "fictitious" lead for his long-time rival President Uhuru Kenyatta.

He also confirmed that he had had a meeting with Raila Odinga on Wednesday evening where the NASA Presidential aspirant raised his concerns over the IEBC transmission of results. According to official figures, Kenyatta leads with 54.3 percent votes while Odinga is behind with 44.8 percent votes.

Former South president, Thabo Mbeki, who is leading the AU observer mission, told journalists at a press briefing in Nairobi that the counting of votes was being carried out in a transparent manner in the presence of all party representatives.

Odinga posted 50 pages of computer logs online to support his hacking claims, but they were "inconclusive", according to Matt Bernhard, who studies computer security in election systems at the University of MI.

The election commission says there was a hacking attempt but it failed.

Police shot dead at least three people while protesters killed a fourth person, witnesses said.

IEBC has said it will announce the victor of the presidential race on Friday.

"... You can't have a leader saying to his supporters; remain calm but when required, we will call you to action". Provisional results show Kenyatta holding a strong lead with 97.5 percent of polling stations counted after Tuesday's vote.
