"We Have Faith In IEBC "Says ODM leaders

ODM leaders have said now they have confidence with IEBC under the chairmanship of Wafula Chebukati as 2022 Presidential elections. The leaders have gone a head to call all the people to register as voters in the ongoing mass voters registration activity that is happening countrywide. They have said so to ensure that they push for Raila Odinga’s bid to become the next president come 2022.

James Orengo the current Senator of Siaya has said that they have put all measures into place to ensure that there is no election rigging in 2022 as it was evident in 2017,which forced the supreme Court under the leadership of Maraga to nullify the election.

The ODM leaders ,Senator James Orengo, Gem Mp Elisha Odhiambo and Rarieda Mp Otiende Omollo without forgetting Ugunja Mp Opiyo Wandayi have urged all the voters to make sure they confirm their voter's registration centers.

Orengo has said that whoever will be announced as winner in 2022 ,they will accept the results since they have the confidence with current IEBC leadership.

"We have confidence in IEBC as constituted. We expect to carry out elections in transparent manner. IEBC should not engage themselves in anything kind of sideshow but focus on delivering free and fair elections. This election is not doubt that Raila will become the 5th." Wandayi noted.

He went a head to say that next year's general elections will be historic for those few individuals who have fought tirelessly to bring change and democracy in this country.

The development came shortly after Homa Bay women representative, Gladys Wanga has put doubt on the chairmanship of Chebukati who resided over 2017 General elections, which saw it nullified by the supreme Court.

"Chebukati presided over the Presidential elections that was nullified by the supreme Court. It was the first Presidential poll to be overturned in Africa. Chebukati is still st the helm of electral agency. We cannot allow this country to be plunged into chaos because the poll was not properly conducted " Wanga said.

Then why these ODM leaders have changed their minds on the leadership of Chebukati as IEBC chairman? Is there something that we don't know as citizens?
