Raila Odinga's Azimio la Umoja Coalition Party intends to sue to stop the Deputy President and Rigathi Gachagua from taking office. The former prime minister declared his displeasure with the results, citing numerous irregularities by the IEBC team in charge of the elections.
A group of four commissioners, led by Deputy Chair Juliana Cherera, issued a statement shortly before the results were announced, expressing their dissatisfaction with Chebukati's announcement.
They cited the final process's lack of transparency, which left them unsure of who the true winner was. According to a recent report in a local daily, the IEBC commissioners may have other procedural secrets. According to the report, the Azimio team may force the four to testify in order to strengthen their case. It is unknown what the secrets are.
