31-Year Old UDA Nyandarua Senator-Elect Makes Fun of Raila's Petition Against Presidential Results

Senator-Elect for Nyandarua County under the United Democratic Alliance, UDA Party John Methu, has laughed off the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga for challenging Deputy President William Ruto's win at the Supreme Court.

On Monday, Raila led his brigade in tabling the petition in bid to woo the court in to nullifying Ruto's win, claiming that the presidential tally had irregularities that would have affected the outcome.

This is Raila's third presidential petition, and in all, he has been claiming that he was rigged out by his competitors. This also adds his 5th unsuccessful attempt at the presidency, with the previous being in 1997, 2007, 2013 and 2017.

Speaking in Nyandarua County on Friday while attending the funeral service of Dr peter Gitau, brother to the county's Woman Rep Faith Gitau, Methu questioned Raila's 5 loses, saying that the Former Prime minister started complaining when the senator elect was 6 years, until now when he is an elected leader.

"Kenyans went to the ballot and chose their leaders, they now want to move on. I am wondering how one will started complaining that his votes were stolen in 1997 when I was a toddler, he complained when I was in primary, through secondary, university to now when I am a senator. This shows something, that it is not Kenyans or the electoral body that has a problem," he posed with laughter from the mourners.

Methu went on to express his confidence that Ruto's win will be upheld, saying that IEBC conducted a free and fair election, and Kenyans did cast their vote with the majority choosing Ruto as their president.

Methu's remarks comes hours after the Kenya Kwanza Alliance team unveiled 54 lawyers who will be seeking to defend Ruto's win.
