Mathira Member of Parliament, Rigathi Gachagua, has challenged former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to promise not to swear himself in as president should he lose the presidential race to Deputy President William Ruto in 2022.
Speaking in Mukurweini, during the burial of Nyeri County Assembly Speaker’s father, Mzee Richard Kaguchia, Gachagua urged the former Prime Minister not to protest the election results that would not favour him for the sake of the peace and unity of the country.
“I urge Raila Odinga to promise to willingly accept defeat if we hold elections and it turns out that he has been defeated by William Ruto. Secondly, he will not bring violence and protests and destroy the property of the people,” Gachagua said.
Gachagua further urged Raila to assure Kenyans that he will not go to Uhuru Park to swear himself in as it was in the 2017 Presidential Elections when he lost to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
