Through his lawyer George Ororo, AG Kihara stated that the NSAC chairperson Joseph Kinyua knew the Presidential results before Chebukati’s official release.

Kinyua who happens to be the Head of Public Service as well is alleged to have been clued on to the Presidential results when he visited the National Tallying Center to obtain the final tally of the presidential election results.

This is contradictory to the earlier reports that the NSAC members were informed of the final results of the August 9 election and went to the Bomas of Kenya intentionally to moderate the numbers.

“The evidence before you by the chairman was that he (NSAC chair) had gone to obtain the final tally only after he had met the Commission, the purpose of the meeting was to receive the final tally of the results,” Ororo told the Supreme Court.

On the question of the independence of the IEBC, the AG argued that the NSAC is mandated to issue advice when required on matters of security.

“NSAC is a body comprised of all the heads of security organs in this country. Its purpose is to receive information on national security and give advice,” he noted.

The attorney general had maintained that his showing up in the case is neutral, as opposed to previous petitions where attorney generals sided with the electoral commission.

The AG’s lawyer Ororo, was responding to the allegations made by IEBC and the third respondent (William Ruto) who claimed that the NSAC wanted to manipulate the results of the election and subvert the will of the people.

According to Kithara Kindiki, a lawyer who is acting for William Ruto, the visit was intended to alter the final tally.

“All factors point to the conclusion that the four, by the time went to Bomas, they knew the results. By the morning of August 1, letters had been issued to the candidates to be at Bomas for the declaration,” Kindiki stated.

Commissioners Abdi Guliye and Wafula Chebukati had also alleged that there were attempts from external forces to have the election results moderated.
