The Azimio campaign has maintained that William Ruto was given preferential treatment by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati during the August elections. Four of the Commissioners objected to the election results, and the Supreme Court upheld their position.
The expectation that the Supreme Court would review the results and order a rerun after the Ruto camp challenged Raila Odinga's victory there was extremely high, but it didn't happen. Since then, the alliance has come out swinging, claiming that the judiciary has been taken over by the State.
The sh 3 billion that was given to the judiciary, in Raila's opinion, was merely a bribe intended to silence the other branch of government and bring it under the control of the executive. One of the Azimio leaders responded today after Wafula Chebukati of the IEBC, Martha Koome, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and President William Ruto were all apprehended in the same location.
