Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) CEO Ezra Chiloba has revealed that passwords of the Results Transmission System (RTS) were not given until the even of the elections.
Speaking during a regular presser on Wednesday evening, Chiloba refuted claims by National Super Alliance (NASA) flag bearer Raila Odinga that the electoral system had been hacked.
“No password was given to anyone within the Commission until the eve of the elections as part of assuring the integrity of the system,” he elaborated.
He affirmed that there was no internal or external interference with the Transmission System as earlier claimed
“We have reviewed the alleged logs and have established that our RTS system is based on a different database from the alleged hacked database,” he explained.
He added that after carrying out investigations, the commission could not substantiate Odinga’s allegations of hacking.
The CEO, however, acknowledged that they needed to be vigilant and therefore urged that anyone with information on threats to the system inform the IEBC.
The IEBC boss further stated that by Wednesday evening, the body had received data from 96% of the polling stations and was expecting the other centres to present their results as well.
Earlier in the day, Chiloba has assured that the electoral system was highly secure and very few people had access to itFor Verified Information and News, look for EXPOSEKE.com, hit the bell button to subscribe for updates, to reach our support team, contact us here
