The National Super Alliance (NASA) has accused foreign observers in the just ended general elections of being subjective.

Speaking on Friday after President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner in the general polls, Siaya senator James Orengo said the IEBC influenced the observers to allow mischief in the whole election process.

This came after he and NASA co-principal Musalia Mudavadi stormed out of a meeting between all chief presidential agents and IEBC officials.

Orengo accused the observers of dishonesty, adding that they had secret relations with leaders in Kenya.

“The foreign observers should have been vetted to assess their relationship with the leaders in Kenya,” said Orengo. 

Kenya received the observers from the African Union, the European Union, Commonwealth countries, the United Nations and the East African Community (EAC).

Despite all observers agreeing that the elections were free, fair and credible, the Opposition accused them of giving a premature conclusion on how the poll was conducted.
