Raila Odinga, the ODM boss now claims that he worked with 'ethical hackers' to get the details of his alleged stolen victory in the last polls.

Raila has claimed that an IEBC insider, whom he has described as a whistler blower, provided him with actual presidential election figures.

The opposition chief says the figures show that he won the last General Election with a margin of 2.2 million votes.

Speaking on Monday during an interview with Ramogi TV, Raila said he delayed commenting on the outcome of the polls as he awaited the whistler blower's exposé.

The ODM leader said he was forced to enlist the technical assistance of foreign hacking experts to unearth facts about the presidential tallies by the IEBC.

“I did not want to talk about the results and elections, I could have been seen to be lamenting a lot. I had to look for ethical hackers to know the truth,” said Raila.

He has claimed that retired IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati announced different figures than the ones that had been captured in the servers.

Chebukati had rubbished the claims saying the poll outcome was validated by the Supreme Court.

Raila also revealed that the State tried to thwart the work of his hackers when they arrived in the country with their sophisticated machines as they were trailed for over a month.

“We got them from abroad and they came with their machines. They had to go as far as Athi River, some in Kajiado and even Kiambu because they were being tracked for about a month,” he said.

According to Raila, the ethical hackers handed him the smoking gun about the actual presidential figures that he claimed IEBC concealed.

“These revelations came while I was in South Africa, so I promised my supporters that I would address them once I am back in the country. It was evident that Ruto did not win clean from the last general elections,” said Raila.

“Ruto got 5.9 million while Azimio got 8.1 million. We won the last election with a margin of 2.2 million.”

In the Presidential election results that were announced by Chebukati and validated by the Supreme Court, President William Ruto beat Raila with 7.2 million votes against 6.9 million votes.
