In their separate responses earlier Saturday, IEBC Commissioner Abdi Guliye said in his affidavit that Raphael Tuju and Amos Wako attempted to force the commission to declare Raila Odinga president-elect or force a re-run in the August 9 polls.

Guliye, who is listed as the fourth respondent in the presidential petition filed by Raila Odinga and Martha Karua, said Tuju and Wako tried to manipulate IEBC on August 15, 2022.

On her part, the commission's Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera-the fifth respondent- claims that her boss, Chebukati, announced results that had not been fully verified and certified by all the seven IEBC commissioners.

Commissioner Justus Nyang'aya (sixth respondent) said in his affidavit on Friday that a foreigner and three IEBC staff members intercepted forms 34A on the IEBC portal and changed the results.
