Friday July 29, 2016 – Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) CEO, James Oswago, has finally revealed how President Uhuru Kenyatta rigged the 2013 Presidential Elections.
In an interview with Ramogi FM on Thursday, Oswago who was speaking in his native Luo dialect said Jubilee agents tampered with Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits and changed some contents in the 2013 poll.
He said that he can even go to court and provide details about how Jubilee agents tampered with some BVR kits especially in Nairobi and Eastern regions and rigged the election in favour of Uhuru.
Oswago dropped the bombshell a week after the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) recommended criminal charges against him and three other people over the ‘Chicken Gate’ scandal.
The EACC cleared IEBC Chairman, Isaack Hassan of corruption allegations related to the scandal even though he is known to be the spear of the same.
But it called for Mr Oswago’s prosecution together with a local agent of the UK printing firm, Smith & Ouzman, Mr Trevy Oyombra, Ms Hamida Ali Kibwana and Mr Kenneth Karani.
In his defence, Oswago accused EACC of using him as a sacrificial lamb in the ‘Chicken Gate’ scandal. He is expected and willing to spill more beans in the coming weeks to set the record straight.
