Supreme Court: Tough Talking Raila's Lawyer Names Counties With Contradicting Votes in Forms 34A

The Supreme Court of Kenya kicked off the official hearing of the election petitions filed against President-elect William Samoei Ruto today. This comes after a pre-trial hearing was held at the same court on Tuesday 30.

After Senior Council James Orengo presented his submissions to the Honourable Court, he handed over a chance to his fellow Senior Council, Julie Soweto to also argue her points in pursuit of defending Raila Odinga who's actually the first petitioner in the case.

While speaking, the tough talking lawyer submitted evidence with reference to the recently presented affidavits. In her argument, Lawyer Julie unveiled names of three counties where the number of votes contained in forms 34A that were received by Raila Odinga's agents, those that were submitted the National Tallying Centre and those uploaded on the IEBC portal are different.

Referring to an affidavit filed by Celestine Anyango, Lawyer Julie Soweto stated that the total number of the aforesaid forms that were sampled amounted to forty one (41). They are from Bomet, Kakamega and Kiambu counties.
