NASA, IEBC quarrel over server access

NASA, IEBC quarrel over server access
The seven-judge bench at the Supreme Court during the pre-trial conference on Saturday, August 26 2017.

The electoral commission and the opposition are embroiled in a row several hours to the 5pm deadline given by the Supreme Court to file a report on the scrutiny of election team servers and results transmission kits.

On Tuesday morning, NASA lawyer Paul Mwangi accused the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission of stonewalling and denying them the read only access granted by the Supreme Court and instead giving them only printed logs.

However, the IEBC fired a tweet in response denying the accusation and insisting that it had complied with the Supreme Court order noting that scrutiny by all NASA petition parties is currently ongoing.
