President Uhuru's Jubilee Party has called for investigation and possible prosecution of Raila Odinga’s chief agent Musalia Mudavadi and Nasa lawyer James Orengo for allegedly accessing Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) servers illegally.
In a letter by Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju on Friday to the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko, the ruling party wants investigations launched into how Nasa accessed electoral commission's server logs without permission.
Tuju cites an August 10th letter that Mudavadi and Orengo wrote to IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati saying they had "secretly and surreptitiously" obtained data on the actual presidential results in the commission using “confidential sources.”
This was a day before IEBC declared President Uhuru Kenyatta the winner of the August 8th presidential election.
Jubilee also refers to Mudavadi’s press statement issued on the same date, communicating that actual results from IEBC servers indicated Raila as the winner of the poll.
Tuju noted that Nasa could only have extracted these information by accessing IEBC systems illegally.
“We request your good office to expeditiously direct comprehensive investigations and prosecution if your investigations uncover sufficient evidence, pursuant to the provisions of the IEBC Act, Election Offences Act, and Communications Act, Penal Code and any other law against Hon. Mudavadi and Senior Counsel James Orengo and any other person who has unauthorised access to the IEBC servers,” reads the letter.
This comes as the opposition outfit demanded the DPP to prosecute of ten IEBC officials including the chairman Chebukati, within72 hours.
