Kenyan opposition leader, Raila Odinga, has said that the electoral commission’s servers have been hacked to award the incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta, a significant lead in the country’s elections held yesterday.

The leader of Kenya’s opposition has claimed he was cheated of victory by an overnight hacking attack that he said manipulated the results in the country’s presidential election.

“You can only cheat the people for so long,” Raila Odinga said. “The 2017 general election was a fraud.”

With ballots from 96% of polling stations counted, results released by Kenya’s electoral commission showed the incumbent, Uhuru Kenyatta, leading with 54.3% of the vote, against Odinga’s 44.8%, a difference of about 1.3 million votes.

Speaking at a news conference in Nairobi, Odinga claimed hackers had broken into election commission computer systems and databases overnight to “create errors”. He urged his supporters to remain calm, but added: “I don’t control the people.”

Mr. Odinga said hacking had taken place between 12:37 p.m. and 4 p.m. on the day of the election. The hackers, he said, had used the credentials of Mr. Msando to instruct the servers of the electoral commission to doctor results from polling stations.

“They loaded an algorithm which is a formula to create a percentage gap of 11 percent between our numbers,” he said, adding that the figure was “a function of a formula.”

And Mr Odinga, said on Tuesday night that the early results were “fictitious” and “fake”, telling a late-night news conference that his party’s own tally put him ahead.

“We have our projections from our agents which show we are ahead by far,” Odinga said.

  1. Sounds like HH’s 3 PVT systems, if you ask me. Is Odinga taking a script from HH’s playbook?

    • @1 Chief, get back to your old ways of self moderation. You are getting too brutal on the embattled brother him. Though a good lesson learned, brothers puffed with ego the size of an elephant never learn. They straw to elections with the usual tired and outrageous narrative of rigging. Such is not only repugnant, but practicing infantile politics of unpatriotism new Africa does not need in her contemporary political order. Hahahahah I love my African circus.

    • That’s the legion of Afonso Dhlakama, Morgan Tsvangirai and our very own brother. Adjunct Professors, may be we need them bundled together in some lecture theater at the Institute of Democracy in Lusaka.

  5. Africa has two very bad election losers
    1. HAKAINDE HICHILEMA
    He will tell you before elections that he is not going to accept election results.
    2. RAILA ODINGA
    He will tell you before elections that there is no need for elections since he has already won.
    When they lose they want to cause havoc. They want the whole world to come to a stand still.
    THE NEXT FEW DAYS WILL BE ROUGH FOR KENYA,
    PLEASE PUT THEM IN YOUR PRAYERS.

  6. This man sounds like Hopeless Hyena (HH)
    Their sore loser attitude is so similar.
    Even their Satamic approach is the same:
    He urged his supporters to remain calm, but added: “I don’t control the people.”

    Soon he will promise Armageddon

  7. What is the problem with African Opposition Leaders kanshi? Mr Odinga you have just lost again. The difference of 1.5 million is too much to claim hacking even when other are doing manual tallying of figures. This time you may not be lucky like last time when you put the country on fire.

  8. Raila what do you want us to do about that? Projections from your team will always show you are ‘far ahead’ because that’s what you pay them to do. We had the same incident with our HH here, his team’s projections showed he was ‘far ahead’!

  12. The Unip SG uncle Gray Zulu was at a luncheon in China when the lights went out. He asked his hosts ” So even here you have Zesco problems “. In this case he was going to ask ” Even here you have HH disputes? “

  13. The problem with the opposition in Africa is that they rely too much on social media projections. Most of these sources are very biased towards the opposition. This a major problem which we must eradicate.

  14. I admire the resilience of politicians. they always take things to the very end. hoping a miracle will occur even when they can see and read that they are heading to nowhere. Knowing that people are watching the very comedy they are creating. Though it’s always a comedy of errors. All the time they pass through emotional treads giving people false hope of change. but alas, things fall on the way – wide side. Politicians don’t learn lessons. They repeat the same mistake over and over. hoping against hope that things may be different. I think they can equally contribute to the well being of their country without them being the presidents. I pray that Raila Odinga will man enough and accept defeat. or be falsed to accept the incumbency victory.

  15. I said it before and I will say it again.
    This erra has no leadership to fill the gap. The calibre of politicians we have are all Under5s. Vote of no confidence has flopped on Zuma. Kagame wins kenyatta wins. Our current opposition thinks that when they insult the encumbered president then people will love them. Look at saviour in prison, hh in prison all because of insults. Ecl might continue after 2021 if the crop of opposition remains under5.

  21. The interview line being taken by BBC on the Kenya election is very leading. It’s like they want violence to erupt out again. I’ve been listening very carefully to these interviews especially with opposition members and it looks like the BBC is looking for more “exciting” outcome.

  22. Let Ralla Odinga agree with the results announced by Electoral Commission in-order to stabilize the whole Kenya.
    Ralla should know that African president on power always refused to give power peacefully

  23. Ralla Odinga should know that party money-mongers will always tell you nice things such as you gonna win,you are popular,you’re peoples’ choice etc.The reality is that an election loss is a bitter pill to swallow especially in Africa.Opposition parties in Africa go in an election race bubbling in too much confidence not knowing that they can only be one winner.
