IEBC Says Githongo’s Affidavit Is Based On Hearsay, Forgery


The independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has dismissed a number of affidavits presented by the Azimio Coalition in its petition challenging the declaration of William Ruto as the President-elect.

One of the petitions highly challenged by IEBC Lawyer Eric Gumbo is the affidavit by activist John Githongo’s affidavit claiming that there were about 56 log ins in the IEBC servers by foreigners.

“We took time to examine the logs that were presented, my ladies and my lords am sure you have the appropriate infrastructure to be able to make a determination on your own as to what these logs entail,” says Gumbo.

Gumbo further claims that the other affidavit sworn by Githongo claiming that a form 34A from Tiaty constituency in Baringo County attached in Githongo’s affidavit claiming that it had been altered was forged.

According to Gumbo the specific form is a forgery, a claim supported by an agent in a sworn affidavit.

“Michael Ouma in his affidavit confirms that in fact the form that was attached in the affidavit of John Mark Githongo is not a form that arose from the process that they allege it arose from. According to him, this form was downloaded, somebody tried to interfere with the details in it and then uploaded it back,” says Gumbo.

 “My ladies and my Lords, as a statutory requirement we delivered all the form 34As to this court. We have a copy, the entire public has copies of each and every copy of those documents.. and in relation to that specific form 34A, to say the least is a forgery.”
