IEBC Admits Blunder in New 2017 Election Report by Kenyans247(1): Mon 18, May, 2020 11:19pm
After hours of online trolls on Sunday, May 17, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) pulled down its recently uploaded 2017 General Election report.

IEBC uploaded the 2017 General Election data on its website on Saturday, May 16, and posted the link on Twitter, data that contained numerous irregularities.

The electoral commission on Sunday evening decided to recall the election data after trending on social media for the better part of the day.

"The Commission has recalled the 2017 General Election data that was uploaded on the IEBC website after a few typographic errors occasioned by massive data were noted

"The corrected document will be re-uploaded and shared in due course. Inconvenience caused highly regrettable," read their post on Twitter.

The correction post attracted widespread reactions from Kenyans most who refused to take the apology.


"Is there a possibility that you could have done the same with election results? Because the data is even more massive in that case," read one of the replies.

This came even as Kenyans.co.ke tried to contact IEBC commissioners, including chairman Wafula Chebukati for the better part of the day with no forthcoming responses on the glaring inconsistencies.

The report indicated that Suba North MP Millie Odhiambo and the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth lost their parliamentary bids in the 2017 General Election.

Dagoreti South aspirant, Dennis Waweru was also reported to have won the seat after garnering 55,675 votes compared to the incumbent John Kiarie who got 12,708 votes.

Another error in the report was the omission of current Muhoroni MP James Onyango K'Oyoo from the list of candidates, with the winner declared as ODM Party's Francis Ogot Ong'elle who apparently got 50,080 votes.


The timing of the report coincided with Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria on Monday, May 11 alluding that the 2013 and 2017 General Elections might have been stolen.

The commission was plagued with a number of scandals with Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi on Saturday, May 16, threatening to expose the masterminds behind the murder of former IEBC ICT manager Chris Msando and others.
