Kenyans for Peace with Truth and Justice have released the data, findings, analysis and verification of their legal working group, who have conducted an intensive investigation of electoral anomalies and malpractices that plunged Kenya into civil war. The four documents comprise:
1) An analysis of the differences between the presidential and parliamentary vote in 2007, using the 2002 results as a benchmark.
2) An hour-by-hour log, compiled by Kenyan election observers, of the last phase of the presidential tallying. Their testimonies expose what can only be termed a resolve among electoral officials—including Commissioners and staff—to obtain a pre-determined outcome, whether supported by fact or not.
3) A table of these anomalies, malpractices and illegalities committed in at least 49 constituencies across the country.
4) A summary of the findings.
KPTJ is a civil society coalition of over 40 Kenyan legal, governance and human rights organizations, as well as concerned individual Kenyan citizens.
