The National Super Alliance (NASA) has began private prosecutions against six Safaricom staffers they believe colluded with the IEBC and the French IT Firm, OT Morpho to bungle the August 8 presidential election.
Led by Raila Odinga, the opposition claimed that the telco firm routed results from the polling stations to a server in France and terminated them there instead of transmitting to the electoral commission’s server at the BOMAS of Kenya.
The six, he said were aware of the manipulation of the results but kept mum.
They are: Anthony Gachanja, Robert Mutai, Thibaud Rerolle, Shaka Kwach, Farouk Gaffour and Andrew Masila.
The opposition leader gave the DPP 72 hours to prosecute the said individuals but the time has since lapsed hence the private prosecutions.
Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore defended the firm saying that ‘results from KIEMs kits from Safaricom zones, were transmitted and are on the IEBC web portal.’
