nairobi - The Kenyan opposition has demanded that her leader Raila Odinga be declared president. According to a major ally of Odinga, sources within the electoral commission had transferred data showing that the opposition candidate received more votes than his rival, sitting president Uhuru Kenyatta.
Preliminary results show that Kenyatta is going well. The opposition does not trust those results and claims that it has been cheated. According to his political ally Musalia Mudavadi, Odinga would have received more than 8 million votes, while Kenyatta remained at 7.76 million.
It is also unclear who has spoken through the information about the alleged jail. Mudavadi spoke about 'confidential resources' within the electoral commission. 'We demand that the president of the election committee immediately announce the results and appeal to the honorable Raila Amolo Odinga,' said the High Opposition Officer.
President Odinga has repeatedly said that fraud has been widely investigated. He also claimed that hackers were involved in manipulating the results. The election committee chairman said Thursday that hackers indeed tried to manipulate the systems of his organization, but that attempt failed.
International observers reported that they did not see any signals that the polling station was manipulated. They preach the way in which the country has been treated with the election. 'The system that has been set up so far has proven value,' concluded the former US Secretary of State John Kerry, leading a group of American observers.
