Samwel Mohochi, ICJ executive director, said they found out that in terms of turnout, a total of 15,073,663 voters was announced against the 15,518,971 streamed on TV at one point.

Mohochi currently places the number at 15,591,217 presenting a standing gap of 517,554 votes.

He explained that the total number of registered voters certified after the KPMG audit was 19,611,423 down from 19,646,673 after a clean-up.

The total number of ballots in the ballot packing list was 19,613,846 but IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati declared the total number of registered voters as 19,637,061.

"The declaration of presidential election results was 25,658 votes above the 19,611,423 in the register. There is a significant shift in the total number of registered voters. Registered voter numbers vary from certified figure in 45 counties."

Their finding also shows votes in 288 constituencies do not match details in forms 34 A and there are no grand totals for rejected votes in 25 constituencies.

Mohochi explained that the number of rejected votes on the IEBC portal stands at 403,489, against only 78,547 on 1,400 forms 34A analysed so far.

He said that even though the commission did not announce the number of rejected votes, they streamed 401,903 as rejected votes. The sum of the country total was 400,796 while summing up constituencies' rejected votes on the portal gives the figure 401,943.

"There are glaring differences between results announced in the presidential election at county level and totals from constituencies in those counties. For example, in Kisumu valid votes are 378,903 against 439,423 from the constituencies in the country, showing a deduction for 60,520 votes," he said.

"Similarly the valid votes in Kericho were announced as 294,215 against 303,470 votes on the portal, repressing a loss of 9,255 votes."

He cited incidences where voter turnout in some stations exceeded the number of registered voters.

The lobbyists said the differences were not only huge but also point to a problem with the election outcome as announced.

"At face value they suggest a full audit of the result IEBC has released and their reconciliation with authentic documents from polling stations. The amount of missing data a full week after the election calls into question whether the declaration of results could be made legitimately."
Hii evidence kweli is a needle in a hay stalk. So the conclusion according to them when the election was announced when over 300polling station had not completely finished tallying is a difference kweli this NGOs should hire githeri Man to be doing their calculations.
