The jubilee party has demanded the investigation of James Orengo and NASA Co-principal Musalia Mudavadi for illegally accessing the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission’s servers.

The party has written to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions demanding an immediate probe.

“We request your good office to expeditiously direct comprehensive investigations, and prosecution if your investigations uncover sufficient evidence, pursuant to the provisions of IEBC Act and communications act, penal code and any other law against Mudavadi and Senior Counsel James Orengo and any other person who had unauthorised access to the IEBC servers,” Jubilee’s letter to  states.

The ruling party is following up the statement from NASA coalition after the August 8 election which NASA said Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission’s servers were compromised.

The NASA coalition said they have learnt of the hacking of the IEBC server through a “confidential source” within IEBC which indicated that Raila had more votes than Kenyatta.

In his claim the opposition leader Raila said jubilee “gained full entry and created errors which allowed them to turn into a formula into a formula. Within 12 hours this attack on our democracy affected the election in all our counties.”

On their part the French firm that was in charge of IEBC servers has dismissed claims that the system was hacked.

OT-Morpho, through its Africa and Middle East director Olivier Charlanes, said the system used in the annulled August 8 polls was not tampered with.
