Now that more information is available, it is understood what will happen to Vice Chief of the Defence Forces (VCDF), Lt. Gen. Francis Ogolla, later this year.
President William Ruto revealed that some military leaders were taking part in a plot to rig the August 2022 presidential election in order to deny him victory. Ogolla is one of the military leaders who is said to be on Ruto's bad side. Ogolla was one of the National Security Advisory Council (NSAC) members that met with IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati immediately before he announced the results, according to his affidavits. Additionally, they made an effort to convince him to declare Raila Odinga, a candidate for Azimio La Umoja, the winner instead of Ruto, who won. And because Ogolla will be leaving his job later this year, it has been noted that Ruto has replaced individuals he believes were working against him with loyalists. The Standard claims that Philip Kameru, the National Intelligence Service's (NIS) director general, is also about to depart his position and would retire in two years.
According to Chebukati's affidavits submitted to the Supreme Court, the NSAC team, which included Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and Solicitor General Kennedy Ogeto, allegedly urged that Chebukati tamper with the results in order to deny Ruto victory. Thehe NSAC made it clear in its counter-affidavit that its visit to Chebukati was not intended to interfere with the results, but rather to find out why the IEBC was taking so long to issue the official pronouncement. 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," it said. The public display of results had been abruptly stopped, and there was no public on the same.
