On Election Day, Kura Yangu Sauti Yangu, a coalition of civil society organisations in Kenya, deployed over 500 monitors in all the 290 constituencies to monitor and observe the election. KYSY has also received observations from the public in pictorial, video and written form.
KYSY has revealed important contradictions and major anomalies in the data released by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) – particularly differences between the chairman’s formal announcement of final presidential results, and what is displayed on the website portal.
This important new update show that final results verbally announced by IEBC Chair, Wafula Chebukati, 11 August, are dramatically contradicted by the data displayed on the website portal.Every region (or former province) has major differences of valid votes. Totals in Nyanza, Western, Nairobi, Northeastern and Eastern show differences through totals of decreased valid votes; Central, Rift Valley,and Coast show differences through increased valid votes.
