Calvin Ogalo, the guy thought to be the tech geek used on Jicho Pevu to demonstrate how IEBC and KENCALL servers were manipulated, was last Sunday reportedly arrested at his home in Jamhuri estate by about eight CID officers.
The officers are supposedly investigating him on bank frauds but his close friends and CORD affiliates are alleging the bank fraud charges leveled against him are blanketed to hide the main intention which they allege to be intimidation for exposing the “rigging” of elections.
“They have arrested Calvin Ogolla for demonstrating to the world that IEBC and KENCALL servers were used to determine the final results during the last general election. As you are aware, a lot of our people too have details of how funds were transferred into the accounts of Iebc officials, both locally and internationally. We promise to expose all this. In their attempts to intimidate us, and stop our plans to petition for IEBC removal, the tribal security apparatus are now intimidating individual cord members by arresting them with a promise of release for their silence. In this regard, they have arrested Calvin Ogolla for demonstrating to the world that that IEBC and KENCALL servers were used to determine the final results during the last general election. IEBC LOST CREDIBILITY and must be disbanded.” Says Layson a CORD luminary.
Another member argues and reads malice in how the Police have handled the matter, “Calvin was arrested Sunday, held incommunicado since. His details were not entered in occurrence book, the police have exceeded 24 hours meant to charge suspects in court, he has bee led since Sunday, and his family cannot see him.” Laments Philemon Wesonga.
It has been established that the accused was being held at the Kileleshwa Police custody and would be arraigned in court with Bank Fraud charges. He is represented by Lawyers Anthony Oluoch, Haroun Ndubi, Norman Magaya, and Counsel James Orengo.
Meanwhile CORD supporters have initiated an online petition for unconditional release of Calvin as they believe it’s politically motivated. The accused is said to be an ex-NIS officer. The petition slogan is dubbed. #FreeCalvinOgalo
