What Is About To Happen To KDF Boss Who Tried To Convince Wafula Chebukati To Make Raila President

More information about what will happen to Vice Chief of the Defence Forces (VCDF) Lt. Gen. Francis Ogolla later this year has finally become available. 

Following his revelations that some of the military leaders were participating in the scheme to rig the August 2022 presidential election in favor of him, Ogolla is one of the military brass who is said to be in President William Ruto's bad books. 

Ogolla was one of the National Security Advisory Council (NSAC) members that met with Wafula Chebukati, the chair of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), immediately before he announced the results. 

They also attempted to persuade him to declare Raila Odinga of Azimio La Umoja, rather than Ruto, as the winner.

Ruto may not need to fire Ogolla, who will be leaving his position later in the year, as he has been observed removing those he thinks were working against him and putting in loyalists in their place. 

The National Intelligence Service (NIS) Director General Philip Kameru is also about to leave his position and will retire in two years, according to The Standard. 

According to Chebukati's affidavits submitted to the Supreme Court, the NSAC team—which also comprised Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and Solicitor General Kennedy Ogeto—insisted that he tamper with the results in order to deny Ruto victory. 

The NSAC made it clear in its rebuttal affidavit that its goal in seeing Chebukati was not to tamper with the results but rather to learn why.

According to the statement, "The NSAC had noted at the time of requesting the meeting, it was not clear whether IEBC and the chairperson would be able to meet the said timelines or whether they were facing any challenges, given that the public display of results had been stopped abruptly and that there was no public on the same."
