IEBC Papers Are Forgeries Says Orengo, Court Makes A Major Decision


National Super Alliance (NASA) lawyer and Siaya Senator James Orengo has revealed that they have already found massive irregularities with the papers filed by IEBC in the presidential election petition.

Speaking after submitting NASA’s written submission at Supreme Court on Friday afternoon, Orengo stated that the documents filed by the electoral body were “forgeries and fake”.


He stated that the documents lacked security features that are in accordance with IEBC guidelines and maintained that they would prove that in court.

Orengo was part of a team of lawyers who were filing their counter responses to submissions filed by President Uhuru Kenyatta and the IEBC.

He also revealed that the Opposition has filed a new application to open the servers and provide the logs for the systems used during the election process

However, The Office of the Registrar has announced that the Court will hold its pre-trial conference on Raila Odinga’s presidential petition on Saturday from 7:00 pm.

The Conference will be used to identify issues for determination in the petition and come up with the rules of engagement that include the time allocated to each counsel.

The notice urges all lawyers to appear before the Court fully robed.

“Take notice that the date of the pre-trial conference has been fixed on Saturday the 26th day of August 2017 at 7:00 pm before the Supreme Court of Kenya,” the notice read in part.
