Details have emerged on the main agenda behind ODM leader Raila Odinga heading to the Supreme Court in a bid to challenge William Ruto's Presidential win in August 2022 polls.
This comes days after Raila Odinga recently declared that the Presidential election figures announced by Wafula Chebukati are null and void and must be quashed by a court of law. Raila Odinga maintained that Azimio's view is that there is neither a legally and validly declared winner nor a President elect.
Raila's remarks came a time after four IEBC Commissioners led by Juliana Cherera distanced themselves from Chebukati's results and refused to own ownership of the figures announced by Chebukati. Their reason was based on the opaqueness of the vote tallying and verification process at the Bomas of Kenya.
City Lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi now alleges that Raila Odinga does not hope for a re-run of August elections. According to Ahmednassir, he says that Raila Odinga wants to proof that he defeated William Ruto in the just concluded elections.
Ahmednasir maintains that the aim of Raila Odinga will not be to nullify the elections.
"Outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga don't want the Supreme Court to nullify the Presidential election of 9.08.2022 . They don't want a Re-run. They want Supreme Court to declare that Hon. Raila Odinga won 9.08.2022 elections using fuzzy maths...." Ahmednasir said on Twitter.
Ahmednasir's remarks have been welcomed by lawyer Donald Kipkorir as he highlights that Azimio are intending to show arithmatic calculations that Raila Odinga won the Presidency.
"Our Supreme Court has inherited jurisdiction to correct arithmetic errors without substantive hearing. If Azimio seeks the prayer of correction of Arithmetic errors and demonstrate beyond peradventure that Baba won, then Baba can be declared President without fresh elections," Kipkorir said.
