Statement by CORD Coalition Regarding Vote Tallying

We have consistently called for patience and peace among Kenyans at this critical time in the history of our county.

As a Coalition, we continue to call for calm, tolerance and piece among Kenyans.

However, this morning we have called to express serious reservations about the election exercise and in particular the tallying process going at the Bomas of Kenya.

Issues of grave concern are the following:
  1. The failure of the Electronic Voter Identification in over 80 per cent of the Country.
  2. The Law requires that voting results be transmitted electronically from polling stations to the National Tallying Centre before ferrying the actual results from the polling stations to protect them from being doctored. There has been a total failure of the Electronic Vote Transmission system an we have evidence that results we are receiving are actually being doctored. In some cases, total votes cast exceeds the number of registered voters. For example Bureti, Kajiado South, Runyenjes, Wajir North and Kathiani among others. In Kajiado South reg voters are 41,040 Uhuru had 24,000 Raila 17,500 Ole Kiyapi 186, PK 127, Mudavadi 106, Karua 44, Dida 14 Muite 9. Total is 41986.
  3. IEBC's failure to address issues raised by Safaricom on the electronic voter tallying system.
  4. Refusal by IEBC to allow CORD Agents to witness and verify the tallying at the Bomas of Kenya. In fact they were literally kicked out.

Because if the concerns, we as a coalition take the position that the national vote tallying process lacks integrity and has to be stopped and restarted using the Primary documents from the polling stations.
