Opposition leader Raila Odinga has revisited the circumstances which he believes led to President Uhuru Kenyatta defeating him in the 2013 general election.
The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader was Uhuru’s closest rival in the election as he came second with over five million votes.
This was the third election Raila was losing having tried in 1997 and 2007.
Speaking in Homabay in Sunday, November 27, Raila claimed that Uhuru conspired with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to double non-existent votes in favour of Jubilee to ensure he (Uhuru) won.
According to him, IEBC sneaked two million non-existence voters into the electronic machines to favour Uhuru who was losing to him.
He said this was established after the services of an international body to look into the 2013 results.
“After the 2013 elections, we decided to seek the services of an international agency to analyse the results which revealed massive discrepancies in the presidential poll outcome,” Raila said.
While the IEBC claimed the total variance between those who voted for the other five seats and the president was 458,085, Raila claimed that the variance was 2 million according to the agency.
He said the international agency found that 10 million voted for MCAs, Women Reps, MPs, Senators and Governors while 12 million only voted for the president and left the polling station.
According to him, the two million were non-existent but were sneaked in by the IEBC.
He said he will not go the next election with the commissioners.
