MAGWANGA’S FORMS BELONG TO IEBC, HOMA BAY RETURNING OFFICER TELLS COURT

While testifying in the hearing of the petition challenging Cyprian Awiti’s election at Homa Bay High Court today{Read more}WhatsApp Image 2017-11-02 at 6.32.44 PM, County RO Michael Kosgei admitted that all the forms 37A filed before court by Governor Magwanga are statutory forms with requisite security features.
The RO also owned up to the alteration he made on Form 37C without countersigning.
“I changed the figure to reflect the true voter turnout after learning of the inclusion of a nonexistent polling station by the name Sindo Main Beach Banda Room 3.” He said.
Both IEBC and petitioner’s forms filed in court have similar features ranging from overwritten, blank, not signed, missing official stamp and lacking PO and agents details, among other anomalies.
The only difference is in the figures where IEBC forms indicate that the computer-generated Awiti is ahead of Governor Magwanga by 20,000 whereas Governor Magwanga’s figures put him ahead of the Jubilee sympathizer Awiti by 50,000 votes.
Mr Kosgei also could not explain why the results of form 37B from Rangwe and Homa Bay Town Constituencies were different from his own captured in form 37C.
Earlier in the day, Rangwe and Suba South ROs witnessed, with the Suba South guy admitting that he, like his Karachuonyo counterpart, broke ballot boxes seals to stuff Polling Station Diaries into the boxes after election.
Cyprian Awiti and his Orata are expected to witness tomorrow, eliciting concerns from the burly and rotund governor’s handlers over the size of the witness stand which is too small for him.Wondering why the kitchen is hot? October 26th, 2017 “Presidential” Elections
It will also be interesting to see whether Awiti will manage to stand up for hours and be able to speak in fluent English, his major challenge.
