Moreover, he confirmed that the disputes in the election process have been resolved through the petition filed by members of the Azimio coalition.
He also questioned the coalition’s failure to use the alleged evidence in their August 2022 Supreme Court remarks.
“The results were announced in accordance with the law, the results were on the portal for all members of the public to view and compare.
“The international community recognized how open and fair the elections were. The people who were disadvantaged had the opportunity to go to the Supreme Court, which unanimously upheld the results,” he said.
Earlier on Thursday, former Kenya Kwanza campaign team digital strategist Dennis Itumbi also rejected the allegations, claiming the alleged whistleblower was part of Azimio’s campaign team.
He claimed that the whistleblower identified by Kioni had provided campaign advice to the Azimio coalition.
“Vanguard Africa confirms in regulatory documents filed in the US and signed by Jeffrey Smith that they offered Raila Campaign advice,” Itumbi stated.
For their part, Azimio leaders led by Wiper Party Leader promised to provide more information about the IEBC insider’s revelations after deliberations.
The Election Commission had yet to comment on the matter at the time of this publication.
