Azimio One Kenya coalition has poked holes into the August 9 presidential election process, alleging that Raila Odinga was rigged out.

Speaking to members of the press at Bomas on Monday, August 15, ahead of the unveiling of the winner of the presidential poll, Raila's chief agent Saitabao Ole Kanchory claimed that the electoral body's systems were hacked, tainting the credibility of the election.

Kanchory alleged that officials of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) were involved in a 'rigging scheme'.

"We have intelligence reports that their system was penetrated and hacked and that some of the IEBC officials actually committed electoral offences and some of them ought to have been arrested if they were not arrested," Kanchory stated.

IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati is expected to announce the presidential results at Bomas on Monday evening.

Already, Raila's main rival William Ruto of Kenya Kwanza alliance has arrived at the venue ahead of the unveiling.

Others present include Roots party presidential candidate George Wajackoyah and Agano party's David Mwaure Waihiga.
