Kenyan Court Nullifies Presidential Election Results
The United States is not the only country dealing with interference into their election process. The Kenyan Supreme Court nullified last month’s presidential election results, following claims by the runner-up candidate, Raila Odinga, that the results had been tampered with electronically. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission had declared the incumbent, President Uhuru Kenyatta, victorious 54% to 45%. However, Justice Philomena Mwilu stated that the IEBC had refused to provide the court adequate access to the electoral IT system, leaving them no choice but to accept Odinga’s claims that either the system was infiltrated and compromised or the officials interfered with the data themselves.
