Raila Odinga reveals Azimio recruited foreign IT experts to investigate the 2022 General Election


Raila Odinga, the former Prime Minister of Kenya, revealed on Monday, February 13 that his political party, Azimio la Umoja, recruited foreign IT experts to ethically hack the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) systems to investigate suspected tampering with the election results in the 2022 General Election. Speaking on Ramogi TV, Raila stated that the hackers had arrived in the country with their equipment and established their base in the Athi River region.

According to Raila, ethical hacking is a concept that is performed with good intentions, and the IT experts were tasked with researching the suspected tampering of election results in the 2022 General Election. However, Raila stated that the team was forced to relocate to Kiambu and then to Narok for a month to find the truth, as they were being tracked once they got inside the systems.

The former premier went on to say that after obtaining the complete report on what happened, he decided to keep the information confidential since he did not want to talk about the topic alone, as people would have questioned him. But, he was glad that an IEBC whistleblower disclosed the facts of what happened prior to the announcement of the elections while he was on a tour in South Africa, which prompted the beginning of the Azimio protests.

In addition, Raila revealed that he had an agreement with Uhuru Kenyatta, the President of Kenya, to advocate for a free and fair election. According to the agreement, none of them were to engage in election manipulation. Other officials were responsible for ensuring that their rivals did not influence the polls, but, according to Raila, this failed.

“When I was with him, we agreed that the election would not be tampered with in any manner since we knew we would win. The memorandum of understanding (MOU) we signed with Uhuru said that there were no preparations to rig. He is aware of what occurred, and many may wonder why, as President, he did not assist. What occurred was that those who were meant to do something did not,” Raila said.
