The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has confirmed the results of the repeat presidential poll as authentic and gave out evidence. The Commission has given out the KIEMS kits data that was availed to them by the OT Morpho, a French company that supplied the electronic gadgets.

The IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati has availed the data to the public for scrutiny saying the commission did not have anything to hide and the elections were free, credible, verifiable and fair.

“Please also note that the voters identified manually (without using the Kiems kits) or the voters non validated by the operators during the identification process are not counted as identified voters,” Mr. Olivier Charlanes, the French firm’s vice-president in charge of Africa said in the letter to the IEBC dated October 30.

The actual numbers, according to the data, showed that 7,575,806 voters were identified electronically by having their fingerprints searched.

From the results, there were 7,616,217 valid votes cast and 37,713 rejected votes, meaning that at least 7,653,930 ballots were cast.

OT-Morpho’s data showed that 5,525,487 voters were identified using biometric finger identifications, 1,622,276 through the alpha-numeric search, and 428,043 using the documents search in the register.

The IEBC gave out the data to the public after the August general elections were nullified by the supreme court following such discrepancies from the public and the Opposition.
