The exiled lawyer argues the electoral agency should not be given thumbs-up following Kibra parliamentary by-election which appears to have satisfied almost all the contestants.

He claimed IEBC was not in control of its servers and therefore it cannot be trusted in upholding electoral transparency.

In his congratulatory message to Imran Okoth of ODM who emerged winner of the mini-poll, Miguna called for a 'revolution' to free the electoral body from 'despots' who he claimed are holding it in captivity.

"Congratulations to Imran Okoth for winning the Kibra by-election. Before despotic surrogates delude themselves that Kibra is the litmus test for electoral justice, let me remind everyone that the IEBC and its servers are still captives of despots. The answer is a revolution," he tweeted.

The issue of IEBC servers came out strongly during a petition seeking to nullify President Uhuru Kenyatta's win in the August 8, 2017 general election at the Supreme Court. 

NASA flag bearer Raila Odinga argued his victory was rigged and asked the court to demand for opening of IEBC servers to get the actual results transmitted electronically from all polling stations across the country.

The servers were never opened and the court overturned Uhuru's win on grounds the election was marred with massive illegalities and irregularities.
