Jaguar told justice Fred Ochieng’ that he had no doubt that the Starehe Constituency election for the National Assembly seat were conducted in accordance with the law.
The MP told the court that the results alleged by Mbogo to be the true results of the elections portraying him as the winner were lies as he believed the ones announced by IEBC to be the genuine.
In the petition filed at Milimani law courts, Mbogo claims that the IEBC selectively manipulated, engineered and distorted the votes cast and counted particularly in favour of the third respondent thereby affecting the final results tallied.
He further claims that in a substantial number of instances, the IEBC grossly inflated the National Assembly votes cast in all six wards of Starehe Constituency in favour of the third respondent thereby affecting the final results.
Through lawyer Anthony Oluoch, the politician claims that several forms 35 A’s were not signed adding that the parliamentary election was not conducted in accordance with the Constitution and Election laws.
Mbogo added that he has evidence that there was systematic interference and manipulation of the results by the Returning Officer causing the systemic manipulation and distortion of the results rendered impossible to determine who actually won the parliamentary seat.
