Kenya: CORD Sues IEBC, Safaricom data

Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s Coalition for Reform and Democracy (CORD), led by head of the Raila Odinga Secretariat, Eliud Owalo, filed a petition this morning at the Milimani Law Courts seeking orders to compel the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) and mobile operator, Safaricom to release crucial documents required to file a presidential petition.

Owalo said in a statement that the documents, sought alongside the evidence in their possession, will form an integral element in the petition they intend to file against the declaration of Uhuru Kenyatta as President-elect.

The coalition plans to file the petition at the Supreme Court by Monday and within the seven days provided for by the Constitution and the Supreme Court Act.

Among the documents that the coalition is seeking from the IEBC are the log files for all short messages that were declared electronically and received from Safaricom, all software contracts between IEBC and all firms that provided software services to them in connection with the just concluded General Election.

Other documents needed are the serial numbers of all handheld transmission devices that were actually configured and made ready for use as aforesaid and the constituencies in which they were meant to be used.

Additionally, the coalition also needs the green book, provisional register of all registered voters and the final register of all registered voters.
