IEBC lawyer Mahat Somane has denied that Venezuelan national Jose Camargo interfered with the August 9 General Election as alleged by Raila Odinga’s lawyers Julie Soweto and Paul Mwangi.

Somane said that the name Jose Camargo which appeared on a form 34A from Gacharaigu Primary School polling station in Kangema Constituency, Murang’a County, was an overlay-meaning the image of the form 34A uploaded on the IEBC portal was taken on top of another document bearing Camargo’s name.

He said that Carmago was among the people working with Smartmatic International, the company contracted by IEBC to provide IT support and that numerous documents bear his name.
