IEBC servers ‘could have been hacked’, Supreme Court Judges say

Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu has said the IEBC’s failure to follow court orders suggested Raila Odinga’s claims of hacking could be true.

Justice Mwilu said IEBC’s disobedience in critical areas left the court no option but to accept the petitioners’ claims that the IEBC IT systems were infiltrated and compromised and data interfered with.

“Our order of scrutiny was a golden opportunity for IEBC to discredit petitioner’s claims but they disobeyed court order” Mwilu said.

On the other hand, she said, IEBC officials might either have deliberately tampered with data or refused to accept that they had “bungled” vote transmission.

“IEBC officials themselves interfered with data or refused to accept that they had bungled the transmission systems and were unable to transmit data,” she added.

⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠”Although Kenyans turned up in large numbers to vote on Election Day, after the voting, everything went awrily opaque. Whether the third respondent received largest number of votes is irrelevant,”.

“Neither the election was transparent nor verifiable. On that ground alone, we have no choice but to nullify it,” Mwilu.
