National Super Alliance (NASA) now claims that only 2.5 million Kenyans turned out to vote in October 26th repeat presidential election.
The opposition outfit rubbished 38% voter turn announced by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), saying it is a doctored figure.
In a statement to the media on Tuesday, NASA linked Jubilee to an election rigging scheme it described as ‘pseudo-elections’, adding that the repeat poll was more fraudulent than that of August 8th.
“There is so little national support for Uhuru now that even as the sole candidate, he needed massive rigging to hide the fact that an abysmally low number of Kenyans turned out to vote – a total of 2.5 million or less than 20 per cent of registered voters,” said the statement.
NASA accused the electoral commission of discarding electronic voting to manual tallying, opening way for addition of 5 million more voters to the actual 2.5 million turn out.
“In manual tallying one can of course doctor the forms and the figures. In this case, IEBC added 5 million manually tallied votes to the 2.5 million recorded by KIEMS! That is how Uhuru Kenyatta got 7.5 million votes,” read the statement.
NASA also lauded a section of foreign diplomats who skipped the declaration of President Uhuru Kenyatta at Bomas of Kenya on Monday and described them as "true friends of Kenya."
“They have no doubt been chastened and embarrassed by the grossly criminal behavior of a government they supported, and even intimidated the Supreme Court justices into staying away from hearing the case on the legality of this election last Wednesday,” read the statement.
