My Thoughts and Views On Raila/AfriCog Petition As Expressed Through Various Online Posts Part I

29 Mar

IEBC Bomas

It has been a busy week to update my blog but I have been posting in other forums I now immigrate some those posts here for those who may not have seen them.

Needless to say, it’s everyone’s expectation; at least everyone who cares about our beloved country that the Supreme Court will do the right thing and in this case there is no question nullification of the bogus results announced by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru won when he, in fact, did not win or even come close is the right and only right thing to do.

The facts and truth has been established to this effect by Raila and AfriCog’s able and impressive counsels, counsel Kithi Kilonzo and senior counsel George Oraro.

Kiti deserves a special mention because I believe she did more than just ably represent AfriCog; she made us all proud in making the case a young, intelligent and sure woman like her is as good as any man if not better in handling matters such as this or more.

The words “you’re my senior but sit down” will be remembered by many for a long time as they oozed of Kithi’s tenacity and confidence even as I am sure senior counsel Fred Ngatia must have said to himself, “what the *&%#!” Welcome to the new Kenya where equality of the sexes must reign.

That being said, here follows the posts and note a number of these posts are addressed to a “KM” who is one of the propagandists for UK and Jubilee on the forums I posted; he’s a more sober and civil one I engage and others like him and unlike the morons on these forums who can’t debate or even think but know only how to insult so I simply ignore them:

KM,

You seem not to know the law on this but you will learn tomorrow.

Let me give you a heads up:

All presidential votes cast in the polling stations where there are discrepancies like this where the total number of votes “cast” is more than the total number of registered voters for that polling station will be thrown out.

There are several of these in the pile easily resulting in the negation of the 8,200 votes Uhuru went over the threshold (note even with their rigging they couldn’t cook enough more numbers than this) and even the 50,000 or so that would apply if all the rejected votes are included.

That being said, let me also tell you my prediction is the SC will base its holding not on how many votes the candidates received but on the basis the presidential election and tally is so tainted nobody can tell who won what number of votes therefore the only solution is to nullify the bogus results announced by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru won when he, in fact, did not win and order new elections.

The discrepancies found in this small sample of polling stations when extrapolated to reflect all 33,000 plus counties prove beyond a reasonable doubt there was rigging in the March 4, 2013 elections therefore the bogus results announced by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru won when he, in fact, did not win at all or even come close must be nullified by the Supreme Court tomorrow and we are confident that will be the case.

KM,

I am happy to inform you as follows:

First, the legal test under the constitution and election law applicable here is not whether any irregularity was intended to influence the results in favor of a candidate but, the test is whether the irregularity or irregularities affected the outcome.

There is no credible court on earth which can hold that irregularities which resulted in thousands of votes added to a candidate and thousands more taken away from another as has been proven in this case from just a small sample that that did not affect the outcome; not one court on this earth can rule that.

Once it’s established that the irregularity or irregularities affected the outcome, the remedy is to nullify the outcome as the Supreme Court will do in this case.

Second, a re-run will favor Raila but I am on record already as having said that cannot be said about a run-off based on what the March 4 results showed, putting aside the rigging.

Third, Raila did not ask for new registration; in fact, his lawyers categorically stated in court we accept the legally noticed vote register of December 18th as the correct and legally valid register so there you’ve payukered.

KM,

You’re a decent debater and contributor so I will not do an auto reply for you; however, I can cut and paste as appropriate things I have said in the past that need not be repeated but you may have missed. Thus, in response to all what you have said here, let me share what I already have here as follows:

There is no credible court on earth which can hold that irregularities which resulted in thousands of votes added to a candidate and thousands more taken away from another as has been proven in this case from just a small sample that that did not affect the outcome; not one credible court on this earth can rule that.

Once it’s established that the irregularity or irregularities affected the outcome, the remedy is to nullify the outcome as the Supreme Court will do in this case.

I know people on your side hope the SC will dismiss these glaring, deliberate and fetal discrepancies as “minor clerical errors” but that shall not come to pass and the court is certainly not going to accept and let stand rigging because “in every election, votes get stolen” according to Hassan’s genius lawyer Abdillahi who we know is painfully regretting now that unbelievable assertion totally unhelpful to his client; in fact, harmful to his client.

Tomorrow, everything I have been saying shall be vindicated and principally the fact that the SC will nullify the bogus results announced by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru won when he, in fact, did not win or even come close.

KM,

Again, the difference between you and yours truly on this, is that mine is based on facts and information as derived directly from the SC hearing I have not missed a word of as am equally and simultaneously chatting with two different groups of interest; now show me anything said by any of the lawyers who have spoken on behalf of IEBC–and they all have and rested, show me one thing said to contravene any of the points of law and fact raised by the able counsel and senior counsel Kethi Kilonzo and George Oraro:

There isn’t a serious person in Kenya whether Cord or Jubilee who doesn’t know this case is done as IEBC was unable to rebut the glaring evidence of rigging presented by Raila and Cord.

Get ready for a re-run or run-off, as the case may be.

We know this is the prayer from the other side: “Yes, there was theft but it was minor theft. Let’s swear the petty theft thief and move on because we would rather have the petty thief than the other guy we don’t like or even hate.”

The Supreme Court fortunately does not get persuaded by such emotional pleas but rather looks at the facts and evidence presented to determine whether the presidential elections were “simple, accurate, verifiable, secure, accountable and transparent” as required under the Constitution and applicable laws, rules and regulations.

If the SC finds otherwise, namely, that the elections were not simple, accurate, verifiable, secure, accountable and transparent, then it shall toss out the bogus announcement by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru was elected when he, in fact, was not elected or even close.

I know some of these basic facts and numbers can be confusing to some so let’s get the straight:

  1. The purported margin between Raila and Uhuru’s vote is about 800,000 votes. It’s unclear how many of those were cooked by the obviously compromised IEBC but it’s a proven fact that numbers were definitely cooked in favor of Uhuru
  2. Uhuru is purported to have gone over the 50%+1 threshold required for one to be sworn as president by a mere 8,200 votes, about .07% of the total votes “cast,” and I put this in parenthesis because that number includes cooked numbers
  3. When there is a discrepancy between the numbers reported in Forms 34 and the final tally announced, the law requires that the entire presidential votes reported for the affected country are invalidated and thrown out.
  4. It’s Raila and Cord’s contention there are many of these discrepancies going into hundreds of polling stations so affected such that throwing out votes on this basis is a foregone conclusion. The number of such votes thrown out will be way more than the 8,200 by which Uhuru “met” the 50%+1 threshold, which means the Court will nullify the bogus announcement by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru won when he, in fact, did not win or even come close and order either a run-off or re-run.

DO

Here is what I have said about this on another thread:

The discrepancies found in this small sample of polling stations when extrapolated to reflect all 33,000 plus counties prove beyond a reasonable doubt there was rigging in the March 4, 2013 elections therefore the bogus results announced by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru won when he, in fact, did not win at all or even come close must be nullified by the Supreme Court tomorrow and we are confident that will be the case.

The Court will, of course, reject IEBC’s lame argument that the discrepancies were “insignificant clerical errors;” far from it. These were deliberate, calculated and intentional manipulation of results otherwise known as “cooking the numbers” the mandarins at IEBC committed in violation of law, which cannot be allowed to stand other than in a corrupt court and our Supreme Court is not corrupt at all.

When taken together with all other evidence adduced at trial of widespread and systemic irregularities and anomalies, there shall be but one outcome in this case and that’s the nullification of the bogus results that the results announced by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru won when he, in fact, did not win or even come close.

We are confident the Supreme Court will find and so rule tomorrow.

KM,

I did read as much of the respondents’ pleadings and carefully listened to all they said in their submissions everything I am saying is based on that, including my now firm believe and conviction we (Cord) started at 4-2 in favor of Raila to now 6-0 in favor of democracy and justice (read Raila).

That’s a good thing for the country.

..

KM,

You say, “I have listened to IEBC, Hassan, Uhuru and Ruto lawyers and came to one conclusion-Cord and Afrog have no case” and that’s why you’re not sitting at the Supreme Court or any court for that matter. When we say this case is a slam dunk for the justices, it’s not because we’re Corded but simply because that’s where the facts and evidence in the record point to looked at objectively.

Partisans like you can look at the same damning evidence and say, nay; there is proof of rigging here but this is not out of the ordinary rigging peculiar to African countries. That’s basically what one of the lawyers I now forget who had the audacity to argue in saying the court has to find more to overturn the bogus announcement by the obviously compromised IEBC that Uhuru won when he, in fact, did not win or even come close.

This thing is over and not just by the findings to be made public we already know will show glaring, deliberate discrepancies in the numbers recorded in the various official documents used by IEBC, including the final bogus tally, but also in consideration of the rest of the evidence presented clearly showing a scheme to rig which, in fact, was carried out by the incompetent and compromised IEBC.

No one slept better last night in Kenya than Raila and Cordeds and no one had nightmares all night long than Uhuru and Jubileeans; tomorrow night is going to be an even better night for Raila and Cordeds and even worse for Uhuru and Jubileans to be surpassed in “betterness” and “worseness” only by Saturday night when champagne will be flowing in Corded areas and plenty of tears in Jubilee areas.

I would only urge our friends, supporters, and like minded to keep the merriment at the minimum because this won’t be over until it’s over after a run-off or re-run as the case may be.
