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. "We have evidence 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.
