The leader of the opposition, Raila Odinga, accused the seven justices of the Supreme Court who ruled the presidential election case of fraud and claimed to have checked their call logs.
Raila said that he had good reason to question the impartiality of the judges. Raila has contested the legitimacy of the August 2022 elections and the Supreme Court's decision about the outcome.
Why did the judges working under Martha Koome not read their own decision like they did in 2017 was a query raised by the leader of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party.
In order to determine who the judges called and met, I looked at their call history. I won't get into specifics, but what they produced is insufficient. The disappointed Kenyans are the reason we claimed we respected them but did not agree, he said.
Raila was alluding to the Supreme Court judges' ruling that the petition contesting William Ruto's victory in the State House race and the consolidated presidential election results case should both be dismissed.
The petition was submitted by Raila Odinga, an Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate, and others, who claimed that fraud tainted the election on August 9. In the landmark ruling rendered on Monday, September 5, Chief Judge Martha Koome rejected the plaintiff's evidence.
