Kibaki Stole Kenya Election Through Fraud

An investigation by the British newspaper, The Independent, uncovered evidence of vote rigigng in a third of all Kenya constituencies during the past presidential election. Stuffed ballot boxes and election officials altering rsults played a decisive role in Kibaki’s final “victory.” The Independent discovered that in 88 of the 210 constituencies the turnout was at least 1,000 votes higher in the presidential election than in the parliamentary poll which was conducted at the same time. This resulted in 380,944 votees more for Kibaki. According to observers, ballot boxes were stuffed by both sides. In one constituency, Odinga won 100.5 percent of valid votes cast. In Maragwa, Kibaki won 115% of the votes. Vote totals were also changed by officials at local polling centers who simply added thousand more votes to the Kibaki margin. Koki Muli, a senior Kenyan observer, noted: “They added 5,00 to 10,000, 15,000–whatever they wanted. It was bizarre. We had results which were quite outrageous.”

After day one of voting, Raila Odinga led by about a million votes, but then results came in from Kibaki strongholds and the numbes continued rising until they provided the necessary total to ensure his election. There is strong evidence election officials worked very hard on changing and manipulating votes until the final result could produce a Kibaki victory.

As a result of this process, at least 600 Kenyans are dead and hundreds of homes have been destroyed.

Kenya Election A Fraud Claims Election Official!

Samuel Kivultu, chair of Keyna’s Electoral Commission admitted there was fraud in the election and that he had been pressured to declare President Kibaki the winner. “I do not know whether Kibaki won the election,” said the commissioner who insisted, “we are culprits as a commission. We have to leave it to an independent group to investigate what actually went on.” In the meantime, hundreds of people are dead as groups opposing the stolen election demonstrate in the streets. A church that burned led to the death of over thirty children whose families had taken refuge in the building to avoid angry demonstrators. Government spokesman, Alfred Mutua, said the government would not accept mediation because the results were in and President Kibaki had won re-election.

After stealing the election, President Kibaki now offers “dialogue” to his opponents. The people of Kenya want something else– an honest count of all votes. The solution does not require any discussion, it necessitates an independent group coming in which will carefully review all votes tabulated in the election in order to determine who actually won it. Kibaki, apparently, does not want such a scenario. He prefers claiming victory and then having his opponents come to him and seek his forgiveness for their violent behavior. Kibaki, like most criminals, wants to shift attention away from the crime and onto the reaction to the crime. There are reports that South African leader Desmond Tutu is on his way to Kenya in order to offer his mediation talents. The opposition does not seek mediation, they prefer honesty.
