  • Election Petition Status Conference Day1: Peeling Off Ahmednassir.

    March 26, 2013

    Dikembe Disembe

    When lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi appeared for the IEBC yesterday, his courtroom performance; with spasms of arrogance and fits of uneasiness, surprised many who saw him bully the same Supreme Court Judges he is now appearing before during the vetting process. Even more egregious, he kept arguing law as if he was in some political rally in Karatina.

    At some point, he resorted to a shouting march (reminding us of one kabando wa kabando), you could clearly see the shock among other counsels in the court. The man is said to be a poor courtroom lawyer, anyway!

    We also observed that his response to lawyer Kethi Kilonzo was not just plain arrogance but showed a flicker of sexism. The man is used to posturing, anyway!

    He spits and ‘pukes’ the Queen’s singular mode of communication; English, reminding us of the incoherence in his client’s voice that fateful night at Bomas. You see, when you can’t speak well, science has proven that you can’t think well! The man is not used to being confronted with intelligence, anyway!

    We watched, dismayed, as he raised his voice (as if bullying others), tapped his fingers, crossed his legs, interrupted others rudely and generally stretched the known confines of decorum in such a worthy profession, in front such worthier men of law. The man finds the going not easy, anyway!!!!

    Ahmednassir is doing his job. We too are doing our job.

    For his antics, this observer gives him 3 out of 10.

  • Who is DOING THIS? HACKERS try to access Chief Justice WILLY MUTUNGA’S PRIVATE EMAILS
    The Kenyan DAILY POST News 05:57

    Tuesday March 26, 2013 – News just in indicates that a private email account of Chief Justice Dr Willy Mutunga was on Monday targeted by hackers who tried to access his emails.

    Sources from the Judiciary confirmed this on Tuesday, saying they are taking pre cautionary measures to prevent further attacks that may come due to the sensitivity of the case he is handling.

    Police sources said they are currently investigating the issue and it is just a matter of time before they nail the perpetrators.

    Chief Justice Dr Willy Mutunga is the President of the Supreme Court and he may be targeted by hackers who may try to manipulate the outcome of the petition by CORD leader Raila Odinga who is challenging the election of Uhuru Kenyatta as the fourth President of Kenya.

  • The conclusion that is drawn from watching this video is that Kenyan hosting services must be very green when it comes to IT. How did this gut access the IEBC server on the hosting services network so causally? Don’t they have security protocols in place like firewalls? If I understood correctly the guy first accessed the computer system as non- administrator then elevated himself to an administrator, this means that the computer system is wide open to anyone anywhere even to anyone with a Internet connection. Is this really in all fairness plausible? Then after elevating himself to administrator from a non-administrator (which all IT conversant people know is impossible) the guy gains access access to the oracle database then proceeds to download the raw data to his computer system where he then commences to scrutinize the raw data. How does he get past the encryption protocols? Oracle databases encrypt data and any data extracted without an encryption key is basically garbled and useless when access on another computer system. Since the video did not show decryption being done before transfer of data, how is it he was able to access data that is clearly visible?

    I am not an IT expert but have friends and acquaintances that are, some who even work with hosting services, and I requested they watch the video and give me their opinion of whether what was being carried out by this whistle blower in the video had any credibility. They have watched the video and concluded that it appears like the IEBC server was not behind a firewall, lacked basic computer system security and even lacked encryption on database data. They find it very extremely difficult to believe a hosting provider would be this careless even in a country with the necessary expertise to expose their computer system is such a way.

    If is indeed true that the system can so easily be accessed, then it means that the electronic process was comprised from day one and open to manipulation from anyone and everyone.

    Hallo , How are you Mr OJ Hatari Esq .It is true that system can so easily,hence in todays world there is no monopoly of technology!and that doesn’t stop nigroes of sub-sahara from waking up from their comatose.Some animals are more equal than others.Animals with high iqs has to lead those ones with very low iqs.Mr OJ Hatari Esq what was your aim in writing that essay of yours? Have you evber heard of Stutnex, Even Mossad web site was hacked.Perhaps it is time to say to hell with Patents!

  • IEBC tallying system attacked twice on poll day

    Updated Tuesday, March 19 2013 at 08:42 GMT+3

    By Paul Wafula

    Nairobi, Kenya: The Sh9.6 billion electronic voting and results transmission system could have been attacked at least twice before it finally crashed at 8pm on March 4.

    Several layers of companies and individuals involved in the supply, installation and implementation phases exposed the system to interference, leaving the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) helpless on where to start.

    But it is the fact that IEBC had not had a single successful test involving all the election officials before the poll day. Investigation by The Standard also shows that despite trials failing, IEBC continued putting on a brave face, admitting failure deep into the election when it was already too late to be fixed.

    An independent auditor of the system pointed this to the fact that the system had been broken into various components that required additional servers, which had compromised its hardware.

    Database server

    “Ideally, the mobile and web application is always a synchronised platform and it raises a lot of curiosity how IEBC allowed different firms to run complementary system functions, which led to further system insecurity,” the source, who ran an independent audit of the system after it crashed told The Standard.

    The other component of the failed system is the maps service server. After the information was received in the database server, it was relayed to the map service server that was being run by Japak GIS for visualisation of results on the screens that were situated at Bomas of Kenya.

    “I established that despite the failure of the IEBC voter tallying system at the testing stage, the institution insisted that it would still go ahead and implement the failed solution that had been developed by Japak GIS and International Foundation for Election Systems,” the source said.

    The independent auditor also raised concerns on whether the overall system administrator had all passwords for the system.

    “My brief was to use my developer networks and knowledge to conduct an initial system audit that would give some insight on what was going on at the back end of the IEBC system,” he added.

    Jamming of the database server, which was receiving the information from the mobile handsets from the various polling centres across the country, also fanned collapse of the project. Next Technologies, the firm that had developed the transmission system for by-elections of September last year, which had been successful, had also been replaced.

    The weakness of the system had been spotted more than two weeks before it happened.

    On February 21, Safaricom had threatened to withdraw from transmitting the election results over its network, citing concerns on ‘website security and capacity to handle huge traffic.’ The mobile firm had also cautioned over a possible penetration of external attacks.

    Transmission system

    “We do remain concerned at the general casual nature of some of the partners and some of the institution’s senior officials,” the Safaricom’s letter handed to the media by Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka read in part.

    In a statement to clarify its role in the transmission system, Safaricom said it had two responsibilities. The first was to provide the Virtual Private Network for the conveyance of the results from polling stations previously identified as having sufficient mobile coverage to the IEBC’s constituency, county and national tallying centre infrastructure.

    The second was to deliver 17,900 original manufacturer warranted handsets to the IEBC for use by polling staff for purposes of transmitting electronic results.

    What further exposed the system is the fact that the technology that was used for voter registration in late 2012 was different and entirely separate from the technology used to identify voters at polling centres given that several companies were involved along the chain.

    By the time it crashed, about 16,000 polling stations had reported the presidential race and above 8,000 had also reported results for county assembly representatives, senators, governors, national assembly members and women representative results.

    Three different technologies were employed in the election. The first was the registration process, which was successfully done. The next phase was the poll book, also known as the Electronic Voter Identification System.

    This refers to equipment used on the voting day to biometrically identify voters at polling stations. This was the beginning of trouble after some laptops failed and others lost power. There were also cases where election staff forgot passwords or were unable to log into the system.

    Some laptops

    “The tender followed through to completion and a South African firm, Face Technology, was chosen by IEBC to supply 35,000 devices for use on Election Day. The devices were allegedly manufactured in Asia (China). None of the equipment utilised in the Canadian-supplied BVR system was used on voting day,” the Embassy of France said in a statement distancing itself from the failure.

    The third technology was used to transmit provisional results from the polling stations to the IEBC National Tallying Centre, involving 32,000 specially configured cell phone devices to electronically send provisional vote results from polling stations to a dedicated IEBC server. This process was called the Results Transmission System.

    The project was developed in-house by IEBC with several technical areas subcontracted to local firms including Safaricom and Airtel. This is the process that crashed a few minutes after 8pm on Election Day.

    Presiding officers interviewed told The Standard that their major challenge was the delay in the delivery of the phones.

    Passwords

    “We received the mobile phones very late and most of us were interacting with them for the very first time on poll day,” a presiding officer who also doubled up as a trainer told The Standard. Some officials were also asking for passwords to be reset almost 60 hours after the election.

    “It was just impossible to understand how they work while at the same time carrying out the election. But our problem was sending the results, I never managed to send any result through and the reason I was told was that the servers were not working,” a presiding officer based in Migori, who requested anonymity, said.

    IEBC Director of ICT Dismas Ong’ondi had, however, insisted prior to the Election Day that the electronic result transmission system had been tested.

    Mr Ong’ondi said it would cost Sh3,000 per piece to relay results for the six elective slots to three different tallying centres across the country. This translates to about Sh96 million. Despite the assurances, the last two trials of the system conducted before the March 4 General Election failed, one of which was in full view of party representatives.

    However, IEBC downplayed all these issues terming them ‘minor technical challenges that would be resolved before Election Day’. This never happened.

    The IEBC declined an interview on this subject on grounds that it was a matter before court even before the petition had been officially filed.

    “ICT matter in court. (sic) Contempt to discuss,” Ms Tabitha Mutemi, the IEBC communications manager told The Standard in a text message declining an interview. The message was sent on Thursday, two days before CORD made true their threat to file their petition.

  • EXPOSED!! Is this how UHURU/ RUTO’s team HACKED IEBC systems……is this true

    It had been ‘rumoured’ that somebody had hacked into the IEBC servers. Well, here are the full details exposing step by step how the hacking was done according to CORD proponents…

    1.14 The First and Second Respondents conferred undue advantage to the Third and Fourth Respondents and their political parties or the Jubilee Coalition by sharing a server with them for purposes of the electronic transmission of results from the various polling stations at the said election.

    1.15 In the course of the polling day, it came to the notice of some members of the public, that the officers of a company by the name Kencall EPZ Limited, a call centre, was receiving the results of the general elections and the specifically the Presidential ones.

    1.16 That upon investigation it became clear that the said Kencall EPZ Limited, in reality was a call centre that was used as a gateway that linked the First Respondent titled African Focus CRM and has a web address https:// http://www.intranet.kencall/apps/
    IEBC and the TNA known as Marketrace on the server and whose web address or URL is https://www.intranet.kencall/apps/tna.

    1.17 The First Respondent’s database and the TNA database was hosted by the said Kencall EPZ Limited on the same server with IP address 196.1.26.40 during the said presidential election;

    1.1 This clandestine arrangement of co-hosting databases is not permissible by law and indeed was not disclosed to the public or to the Petitioner and his political party or the CORD Coalition. The same compromised the independence and the integrity of the First Respondent and that of its data in that the TNA, URP and Jubilee Coalition was able to access the First Respondent’s database and intervene and/or manipulate the results of the election as the same was being transmitted from the various polling stations in the said election;

    1.2 This clandestine arrangement provided an opportunity for tampering with the results of the presidential elections.

    1.3 The Petitioner shall contend and prove that the two databases were mirrored with one another, to wit, they were synchronized, hence when an entry was made or edited on one database, it would similarly be synchronized, made or edited and correspondingly reflected on the other;

    1.4 The Petitioner shall further content and prove that several people were employed and trained for the purpose of the elections to key in data into the TNA and Jubilee Coalition database. It was this data which was then used to doctor the Forms 34, 35 and 36(a) and were ferried to the First and Second Respondent for use to make the announcements at the Bomas of Kenya leading to the unlawful declaration of the Third Respondent as the duly elected President on 9th March, 2013;

    1.5 Quite conveniently, and by design, the First and Second Respondent had meanwhile, delayed the ferrying of such results from the polling stations under the pretext that steps were being taken to rectify the system failure that had stopped the electronic relaying of results of the election;

    1.6 After more than twelve (12) hours had lapsed following the official close of polling, the First and Second Respondents then, in a bid to deceive the people of Kenya, announced that arrangements would be made to airlift Returning and Presiding Officers from the 290 Constituencies of Kenya when in fact there were no immediate plans to do so;

    1.7 Despite such assurances, it was not after a period of over eighteen (18) hours had lapsed that any such officers in fact started to arrive at the Bomas of Kenya which was the National Tallying Centre for purposes of the said election, and even then, the last of such officers did not reach Nairobi until the fourth (4th) day after close of polling, to wit, Thursday, 7th March, 2013.

    1.8 The above arrangement and illegal design provided an opportunity for the First Respondent’s database to be manipulated in favour of the Third and Fourth Respondents, their political parties and the Jubilee Coalition thereby putting them at a distinct advantage relative to the Petitioner.

  • Supreme Court ruling

    Mugambi Kiai, a Harvard-educated lawyer who runs Kenya’s Open Society Initiative, said he thinks the Supreme Court is displaying a mindset of an “old constitutional order” that may base a decision on procedure instead of evidence. He suspects its decisions will keep Kenyatta as president.

    “If by their ruling they’re seen or perceived to be siding with one party or seen to be favoring one side of the argument, the next ‘loser’ will not go to the Supreme Court,” Kiai said. “This Supreme Court has to be very, very careful. This case, it’s not about Railda Odinga and Uhuru Kenyatta. It’s not. It’s about whether in this kind of dispute the next time the ‘losing party’ will have faith and trust in the Supreme Court.”

  • Kethi Kilonzo quotable quotes:

    •IEBC failed to give out the results in 48hrs as they promised….

    •Declaration of results shows that in over 100 polling stations, the number of voters is not the same as the number of votes.

    •I challenge the IEBC and the Court to look into the Constitution and the Elections Act and find me a GREEN BOOK.

    •If IEBC allowed someone not in the register to vote then the election should be invalidated.

    •If IEBC allowed even one person outside principal register to vote, the Supreme Court has no choice but to invalidate presidential poll.

    •The registering of voters was closed on 18th December. That number cannot change after voters register closing.

    •Kriegler recommended that the black book be discarded…why bring it back as a green book?

    •There should only be one voters register in a constituency.

    •The Election act does not belong to IEBC, to interpret as it pleases, but to the people of Kenya.

    •There can be no question of delay. The IEBC availed an electronic register. We want the Principal manual register.

    •The IEBC resorted to the manual register. How do you verify the actual number of people who voted?

    •The principal register will verify the actual registered voters.

    •The marked register shouldn’t be the custody of IEBC, a respondent.

    •The Register is of immense value to the case. The register should be kept by this court.

    •The figures in this register differ significantly with form 36.

  • Bad boysVs Good boys.

    The government uses over Sh27b annually to address disease outbreaks and resulting complications brought about by outdoor defecation.

    Details emerged that 5m Kenyans defecate in the open due to lack of latrines while another 9.2m use unsatisfactory structures, thus promoting disease transmission.

    Chief Public Health Officer Kepha Ombacho said outdoor defecation differed from one county to another, noting that Wajir was in the lead.

    He admitted that the ministry lacked resources to address the problem hence they are seeking funds from the Global Fund for Sanitation.

    The senior officer noted that a pilot project conducted in Western and Nyanza had shown a drop in Cholera cases.

    Ombacho was speaking in a Naivasha hotel during the national environmental sanitation and hygiene coordinating committee meeting.

    On the floods that have hit parts of the country, Ombacho said that they would come with challenges like loss of life and disease outbreak.

    He however assured the country that mitigation measures had been put in place to avoid any disease outbreak.
