STATEMENT BY SAFARICOM ON WITHDRAWAL OF LEGAL PETITION BY CORD COALITION:
Safaricom welcomes the formal withdrawal of the legal Petition filed against it at the High Court of Kenya by Mr. Eliud Owalo a representative of the CORD Coalition.
Pursuant to the withdrawal of the Petition by the CORD representative, Safaricom has undertaken to play its part in explaining and or providing to the IEBC for onward presentation to the Judiciary all pertinent information.
This information is limited to what can be legally disclosed, what is technically available and specifically only that which directly emanates from its contractual scope with the IEBC.
The above notwithstanding, we stand by our earlier public statement of 6th March 2013 and we maintain that our contractual mandate to the IEBC was fully and properly executed.
We would also like to assure the public and all interested parties in this matter that we are fully cognizant of the importance of this process and the need for transparency by all players involved and this is the basis upon which we have extended our full cooperation to the courts.
