4. Reconstitution of the IEBC.
"The attempt by the Kenya Kwanza regime to single-handedly reconstitute the IEBC by forming a William Ruto electoral commission is a reckless adventure intended to wreck this country." ~ Raila Odinga
5. Supreme court treatment to Azimio petition.
"The contempt with which the supreme court treated the Azimio One Kenya presidential petition in the epitome of judicial sagary from judges." ~ Raila Odinga
6. Victimization of commissioners

7. Accumulation of all powers
