Azimio la Umoja lead counsel, James Orengo identifies flaws in supreme court ruling.
The Siaya Governor stated that the supreme court should have mandated the independent electoral and boundaries commission to open its servers for forensics audit.
James Orengo maintained that indeed 3 Venezuelans breached the independent electoral and boundaries commission server.
Chief Justice, Martha Koome, during the ruling refuted the claims of foreigners breaching the servers and she stated that the claims were just hot air and wild goose chase.
Orengo further said that the supreme court of Kenya was avoid the topic of Foreigners breaching the IEBC servers.
Orengo said,”What the court should have done was to order IEBC to open its servers with other election material presented before it. On the matter of intrusion by the Venezuelans, you can note that the court avoided speaking about it.”
His words were echoed by lawmaker Murgor who also maintained that the Venezuelan issue was not addressed properly.
Murgor said,”We had overwhelming evidence, The involvement of the Venezuelans before the elections was not explained. We are a little distressed about the overreliance on the report by the registrar of the court. The issue of the Venezuelans was not touched on.”

Orengo however stated that the supreme court verdict is the final and they only have respect for it.
He said,”I believe in the judgement, you will hear about it. The court has the last decision on what happens. As citizens, we are entitled to make disagree on it.”
Orengo further stated that the supreme court ruling was based on ideological views.
He stated,”What I can say is that they focused on ideological issues rather than looking at other issues on the part of the IEBC. For example, the 50 per cent plus 1 vote was ideological.”
