The High Court has given former Parliament Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim five days to access data from KIEMS kits.
This is in connection to a case where he is challenging the election of Majority Leader Aden Duale as Garissa town MP.
Justice George Ong’udi allowed Maalim read only access data extract from KIEMS kits.
The data from the KIEMS kit have been stored in SD’s cards which are at the constituency IEBC offices whereas the KIEMS kit are at the Nairobi offices for purposes of configuration.
However the court declined to grant him orders to scrutinize and recount the votes cast by Garissa people.
Maalim argues that the election of Duale was marred with irregularities and illegalities.
For security purposes parties have agreed to add padlocks to the warehouse doors where the ballot papers are stored.
The court also directed the parties to deposit the keys with the Deputy Registrar of Garissa High Court.
