Nairobi - The Standard reports mobile operator Safaricom has distanced itself from allegations that it is responsible for the systems failure that saw the electronic voter tallying collapse on Monday night.
In a statement Safaricom said their role in the results transmission was only limited to providing their network but not the software that was used to transmit the results.
Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore said their role is simply to provide connectivity between the mobile devices and the IEBC tallying centers and they did not have any role in the technical design, management or specification of the servers, the mobile software application nor the graphic presentation of the results data used by the IEBC.
