Jubilee ‘Stole’ Raila’s Presidency In 2013, Oswago Finally Admits

There was massive rigging in the 2013 elections that saw Jubilee narrowly beat Cord, former embattled Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) CEO James Oswago has admitted.

According to Oswago, the elections were stolen and he could not do much at the time. Speaking during an interview on Radio Ramogi, he wondered why the electronic voter system ceased working during the 2013 general elections.

He went on to say that the system worked perfectly but was sabotaged during the elections. Oswago, who is being probed for allegedly receiving kickbacks in the chickengate scandal, said that the subsequent by-elections were carried out smoothly without a single hitch.

The troubled ex-CEO blamed the failure of the electronic results transmission system on external forces who had designs to rig the elections.

The allegations have, however, been rubbished by IEBC vice chairperson who said no elections were stolen.

Cord principals have been calling for the disbandment of the IEBC saying it lacks any moral authority to conduct the 2017 polls.
Protests were witnessed leading to deaths and destructions of properties running into millions of shillings. It took the intervention of churches and the international community to convince Jubilee and Cord to agree on a formula to send the IEBC officials home.
