Commissioner Nyang’aya filed a response to Azimio leader’s petition saying foreigner invaded IEBC’s servers and manipulated Forms 34A from the polling stations.
Using ID ‘0’, the accused would penetrate the system at night and reportedly take down the uploaded results and replace them with new ones.
He further cited the non-native for intercepting Forms 34B and doctoring them before re-uploading them afresh.
“That I am also aware that after the previously pulled down results were uploaded afresh there would be amendments for Form 34B,” his affidavit read in part.
Nyang’aya also reported that the IEBC chairperson, Wafula Chebukati, worked with three IEBC staff to manipulate the presidential results.
Chebukati was said to have recruited the staff to alter the results uploaded from tallying centers across the country.
The three-person group as claimed by the commissioner include, Abdidahir Maalim, Moses Sunkuli, and Gideon Balang. The accused trio is yet to file a response to the commissioner’s claims.
“These are the same officers who were helping Chebukati to unilaterally process the results, that he subsequently declared,” the commissioner claimed.
In his affidavit, Nyang’anya further told the Supreme Court that logs obtained from the IEBC servers can prove that the three staff members and the foreigner interfered with the data.
His petition comes a few days after Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Martha Karua presented a written form of their petition at the Supreme court detailing how the election was mishandled.
Raila and Karua disclosed that 19 foreigners and two Kenyan nationals intruded and tampered with the IEBC systems. The two alleged that the scheme was masterminded in March 2022.
They added that the disruption resulted in the manipulation of results and led to William Ruto being declared President-elect. The duo wants the Supreme court to annul the presidential results, tally the votes and announce them as president-elect and deputy president-elect respectively.

IEBC in its response argued that the elections were transparent, free, and fair and also maintained that the system was not hacked as alleged.
Ruto also dismissed Raila’s allegations in the response filed at the Supreme Court on Friday, August 26.
