Raila Odinga rejects Presidential Results, heads to court

761

KENYA– Azimio La Umoja Coalition Leader Raila Odinga has rejected the 2022 presidential results a day after IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati announced the winner of the election at Bomas of Kenya.

Chebukati declared Kenya Kwanza candidate William Ruto as the President-elect after garnering 7,176,141 votes, beating Odinga who got 6,942,930 Votes.

The Azimio leader was missing in action at Bomas when the results were declared, but even a bigger twist of events, 4 out of the 7 IEBC commissioners disowned the presidential results moments before Chebukati proclaimed the winner of the hotly contested poll.

The commissioners, including vice chair Juliana Cherera, commissioners Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit and Justus Nyang’aya, alleged that the final results were arrived at in an opaque manner, without giving further details. 

While giving addressing the nation this afternoon, Raila Odinga said that his team had rejected the results and is ready to go to court for a redress.
