Politics of whether Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) servers were opened again reared its head in Kenya’s politics.
This time round, it’s President William Ruto himself who has visited the matter after the matter has constantly been repeated by the Azimio side of politicians.
President Ruto was speaking today in Kitui County where he was presiding over the opening of the Border Police Hospital in Kitui – when the head of State said that the servers have always remained open and accessible to the hoi polloi.
“It is true that when matters went for validation in court, the servers were opened, and when the court made a determination of the last general elections, the servers were opened. “To now turn around and say that servers to be opened at this point in time is to take us for granted and to believe that there are fools in Kenya,” said the President.
The Azimio side have been boasting how they ‘won’ the last year’s general election by a landside margin. The opposition has been s claiming that dossier claimed that Raila garnered 8,170,355 votes (or 57.53 per cent of votes cast) against President William Ruto’s 5,915,973 votes (41.66 per cent of votes cast).
The Azimio politicians have been crisscrossing the country as they hold anti-Ruto campaigns, and taking advantage of the current harsh economic situation to bludgeon the government to lower the cost of basic commodities, like cooking flour and sugar.
That is the time when they have also been telling the people how the IEBC servers are showing something totally different from what Wafula Chebukati read as the last election results. “The data released by the whistleblowers is a bombshell that compels every Kenyan of goodwill to ask themselves if indeed we still have a democracy,” the Azimio leaders had said.
