Opposition outfit National Super Alliance (NASA)on Friday declined to sign the final presidential election results paper in protest, accusing the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission of giving a fear ear to their concerns.
NASA agents Musalia Mudavadi and Siaya senator James Orengo refused to append their signatures on the final results announced by IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati at the Bomas of Kenya. President Uhuru was declared the winner of the Tuesday's elections.
“It seems the commission was doing pure Public Relations when they asked us to share our grievances, all that was waste of time because they seem to have made their decision,” said Mudavadi soon after walking out of meeting at Bomas of Kenya.
Orengo on the other hand pointed an accusing finger on foreign election observers, terming their verdict on the General Election as dishonest.
“The foreign observers should have been vetted to assess their relationship with the leaders in Kenya,” said Orengo.
European Union, The African Union, Commonwealth, United Nations and the East African Community observers in their post election reports gave the election a clean bill of health, declaring it free, fair and credible.
NASA has in the past few days decried anomalies in the results that IEBC was streaming on its portal and wanted an audit carried before a final result was announced.
The coalition claimed Raila Odinga was leading with over 8 million votes against President Uhuru’s over 7 million.
IEBC through Chairman Wafula Chebukati went ahead to declare President Uhuru Kenyatta the winner of the election after garnering 8,203,290 (54,27 percent of votes cast votes), and getting more than 25 percent votes in 35 counties. Raila Odinga had 6,762,224 votes (44.74 per cent of votes cast), winning in 29 counties.
