“The one who was declared the winner in 2007 was not the winner… We tracked all the results through satellite phones,” he said. “As per my records, Raila won the elections.”
Raila lost the election to former President Mwai Kibaki. The disputed results sparked violence that left at least 1,000 people dead and more than 600,000 internally displaced.
Macharia said he tried to convince Kibaki and Raila to follow a “pure presidential system”.

“I tried to convince them even President Uhuru Kenyatta knows this. If you read the IEBC summary report, it says there was confusion in the 2013 register,” he said.
He added: “Whatever I say here, that media owners dispute, I will take full responsibility for. We can use satellite phones in areas not covered by mobile phone networks.”
