CORD press conference

07 March 2013, 12:40

Nairobi - The running mate of one of Kenya's two front-runners in a presidential vote said on Thursday the ballot count lacked integrity and should stop, comments that could inflame a largely peaceful election so far.

"We as a coalition take the position the national vote tallying process lacks integrity and has to be stopped," said Kalonzo Musyoka, running beside Prime Minister Raila Odinga. "The results we are receiving have been doctored."

But he said his comments were not a call for protests.

Odinga is trailing the leader, Uhuru Kenyatta, three days after the polls closed.

Authorities said on Wednesday the outcome would not be compromised by the failure of electronic counting technology that has left Kenyans in the dark about the result.
