Chebukati secretly printed second set of result transmission forms.
The four commissioners led by Cherera, revealed that independent electoral and boundaries commission chairman, Wafula Chebukati secretly printed second set of result transmission forms.
The second set of result transmission forms, were to show the votes scored by each candidate at each polling station.
In July, political parties had refuted the printing of the second set of result transmission forms, this initiated a meeting by the IEBC officials.
In the meeting, an agreement was reached that the second set forms would not be used in the general elections but sealed in tamper proof envelopes.
However, the Judiciary stated that a total of nine(9) polling stations had used the second set of result transmission form and some even had errors on them.

The polling stations are in Nandi, Mombasa, Nyandarua, Kericho. An instance in Kericho, a vote was taken from Raila Odinga and added to william Ruto’s votes.
The judiciary also highlighted that six polling stations did not submit their forms 34A book two.
The judiciary stated,”Some returning officers explained the absence of form 34A book 2 by indicating that the presiding officers used them instead of form 34 book 1.”
The judiciary report further stated that some returning officers defended themselves saying they did not know the procedure of book 1 and book 2.
The report said,”In such cases the team verified the information by looking for the form 34A book 1 to confirm if it was indeed intact for purposes of accountability. The reason given by some returning officers is that some presiding officers mistook the two books because they did not understand the procedure.”
The report further highlighted,”Other returning officers had no explanation for the absence of form 34A book 2. They indicated that they had just learned of the anomaly together with the scrutiny. The Kiambaa constituency returning officer explained that her presiding officer used book 2 because he had spoilt book 1. They, however, did not provide the spoilt form 34A book 1 for the team’s scrutiny, and the PSD did not indicate that the form 34A book 2 had been spoilt.”
