The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has finally admitted that it announced the wrong figures for Nyamira governorship during the bungled August 8 general election.
The electoral body further submitted that they filled forms 37A,37B and 37C in the Nyamira gubernatorial election incorrectly thus declaring incumbent John Nyangarama the winner.
However, the IEBC, through lawyer Jackson Nyamweya, defended itself stating that the errors were not intentional and affected all the candidates.
Nyamweya spoke during the hearing of a petition filed by Walter Nyambati challenging governor Nyangarama’s victory in the August 8 general election.
Nyamweya further defended the electoral body affirming that the errors were not meant to rob the petitioner of his victory.
