The Independent electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and the opposition leader Raila Odinga were embroiled in a tussle several hours to the 5pm deadline issued by the Supreme Court to file a report on the scrutiny of IEBC servers and results transmission kits.
On Tuesday morning, NASA lawyer Paul Mwangi claimed that the IEBC was stonewalling and denying them the read only access granted by the Supreme Court. Mwangi said that the commission only gave them printed logs.
"At IEBC. We've been stonewalled. No Read Only Access. They want to give already printed logs," lawyer Paul Mwangi said via Twitter on Tuesday.
Mwangi added "It's back to court in the morning".
IEBC, however, denied the claims by Raila's legal team, saying it was fully complying with the orders issued by the Supreme Court.
“The court ordered limited access to ICT information by stipulating exactly what was to happen. The commission has complied with the Court order and continues to comply,” IEBC said.
“The process is under the supervision of the Court and the Commission will follow directions of the court at all times.”
The commission is said to have provided Nasa and the court officers soft copies of the logs on the server, but Odinga’s team made an additional request to download the logs themselves at about 1am Tuesday.
