here is a secret plan to turn off the Kenya Integrated Elections Management System (KIEMS) kits during the vote on Tuesday, NASA has claimed, noting it has received credible information.

Co-principal and head of campaigns Musalia Mudavadi told journalists on Monday the plan is by the government and will be effected from about noon.

Mudavadi claimed Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett leaked this information to his relative, who decided to share it for Kenyans’ sake.

“We are fully informed the state has planned to get all kits switched off starting noon. The plot will start in one region, spread across the country and see IEBC resort to manual processes. This information was leaked by the IG himself to his relative,” he claimed.He did not give more details.

Mudavadi, who is Amani National Congress leader, said that after the switch-off, some locations which are Opposition strongholds will be cordoned off and ballot boxes stuffed.

But commissioner Roselyne AKombe gave a detailed explanation on why ballot-stuffing will not happen.smoke grenades.

Mudavadi further claimed military chopper Y12 was deployed from the Laikipia base to Lamu.

“As we tend to believe this is a normal routine operation by our esteemed uniformed men, the timing of the operation and movement leaves room for serious questions and concerns at this critical moment.”

Mudavadi said credible sources informed them the chopper left loaded with six large cartons containing more than 300 pieces of smoke grenades “headed for a suspicious mission”.

He said the aircraft was diverted to Nairobi where it offloaded half of the cargo before proceeding to Lamu.

The IEBC has denied these claims terming them unnecessary and uncalled for.

Abdi Guliye, commissioner in charge of ICT, told The Star on phone that such claims are baseless and cannot stand the test of time.

Guliye added the kits are stand-alone and have internal power and back-up.

“There is no way all gadgets in 40,883 polling stations will be switched off. The kits will run full time…such allegations are careless.”

He added that cases of malfunction will be dealt with “there and then” at specific locations.

Boinnet was not immediately available for comment but the Defence ministry and acting Interior CS Fred Matiang’i have denied claims of rigging through Kenya Defence Forces.
