CJ warns against failure to comply with access order to IEBC servers

The Supreme Court President David Maraga has warned the electoral body (IEBC) against failing to comply with the directive it provided to access its servers for scrutiny following the application by NASA lawyers.

This comes after James Orengo complained over frustrations with claims that the main servers are in Europe.

Chief Justice Maraga said there would be consequences should the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission fail to offer access as issued on Monday ahead of today’s deadline by 5pm where a report is supposed to be presented before the Court.

Maraga insisted that by the time these orders were made yesterday, Europe is about two or three hours behind Kenyan time and termed it as an unjustified excuse.

He also argued that it is for the parties to work out and comply with the orders within the time specified by the court and the report to be submitted accordance to the court order.

A report on compliance with the orders is expected to be filed by the court registrar at 5 pm Tuesday.
