What will happen to Vice Chief of the Defense Forces (VCDF) Lt-Gen Francis Ogolla later this year is now clearer. Ogolla is one of the military bosses who may not be on good terms with President William Ruto. This is because Ruto said that some of the military chiefs were part of a plan to rig the August 2022 presidential election so that Ruto wouldn't win.
In his affidavits, IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati said that Ogolla was one of the National Security Advisory Council (NSAC) members who met with him right before he announced the results.
He also said that they tried to get him to say that Raila Odinga, who was running for Azimio La Umoja, was the winner instead of Ruto, who was the real winner.
And since Ruto has been seen getting rid of people he thinks are working against him and replacing them with loyalists, he might not have to fire Ogolla, who is retiring later this year.
The Standard has found out that Philip Kameru, who is the Director General of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), is also getting ready to leave his job. He will retire in two years.
Chebukati told the Supreme Court in his affidavits that the NSAC team, which included Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai and Solicitor General Kennedy Ogeto, told him to change the results so that Ruto wouldn't win.
In its counter-affidavit, the NSAC made it clear that it wanted to meet Chebukati not to change the results but to find out why the IEBC was taking too long to make the final announcement.
