Revealed:Ruto Recruited 4,600 Boda Bodas To Transport Forms 34A
Digital strategist Dennis Itumbi has filed his responding affidavit at the Supreme Court in the presidential election petition challenging the results which declared Deputy President William Ruto as president-elect.
In his eight-page affidavit, Itumbi, who runs what he refers to the ‘Hustler nation intelligence bureau’ for Kenya Kwanza, dismissed John Githongo’s affidavit which put him and five others at the centre of a team he alleges altered Forms 34A.
In Itumbi’s affidavit, he termed Githongo’s affidavit ‘fantasy’.
“Githongo’s narration and whistle-blower account is a fantasy and fictional story with shadowy imaginary characters and locations,” he said.
Itumbi went on to detail how Kenya Kwanza set up a 24-hour parallel tallying centre for the August 9 polls.
“The Kenya Kwanza Alliance’s intention was not to declare any results of the election, as that role is clearly the preserve of the second respondent (IEBC)…”
He said the setting up the tallying centre came from tests and lessons learned during by-elections including Juja, Msambweni, among others.
Itumbi detailed how Kenya Kwanza deployed over 46,000 polling station agents and 4,600 managers responsible for 10 polling stations, who then reported to 290 mashinani hustler nation coordinators.
He said the coalition engaged 4,600 boda bodas to transport the managers to collect the hard copy Form 34As from polling stations immediately they were signed by presiding officers.
The forms were then finally taken to the UDA party headquarters on Ngong Road and used to compare with the results being verified and announced at Bomas.
