Leader of the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Raila Odinga currently claims that there was not enough time to gather papers and evidence for the Supreme Court petition about the 2022 Presidential Election.
The August 2022 Presidential Election, according to Raila and his fellow Azimio leaders, was manipulated in favor of President William Ruto, according to new evidence and a whistleblower.
And when Elizabeth Mutuku of TV47 questioned Raila in an exclusive interview on Saturday, March 18, about why his attorneys did not present the aforementioned witnesses and evidence during the petition, Raila responded that they only came into possession of them after the petition had expired.
Raila contends that the constitutionally mandated period of time for filing a challenge to a presidential election is insufficient for gathering sufficient evidence to support such a significant claim.
But Raila is adamant that the petition's supporting documentation was sufficient for the seven-judge panel to invalidate President Ruto's election victory.
The former prime minister also claimed that despite the Supreme Court judges ordering the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to grant access into its servers, they access was never granted. The former prime minister has since called for a mass protest against President Ruto's administration.
Raila continued, "The company's refusal to permit access to the election servers says volumes about what happened during the August 9 2022 elections.
President Ruto's election victory was affirmed by the Supreme Court, which dismissed Azimio's suit and determined that Raila had not provided sufficient evidence to support his claims.
