Raila Speaks After Leaving IEBC Meeting Abruptly, Reveals Something He Doesn't Agree With IEBC

Azimio Raila Odinga and his running mate Martha Karua abruptly exited a meeting with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) on Wednesday, as soon as Deputy President William Ruto entered.

Deputy President came 30 minutes after the meeting began, and when he was spotted making his way to the event, Azimio Running Karua asked to leave with Odinga, stating that they had other business to attend to.

It is unclear whether the two did not wish to be in the same room as DP Ruto, their greatest political adversary.

While speaking after leaving the meeting, Raila Odinga gave out his concerns on IEBC decision.

Odinga questioned why the electoral authority had indicated that it will only use the electronic voter identification method and not the traditional voter register.

"The IEBC says that the electronic voter register will be used.But we want both to be used.What if biometric system breaks down,what will we use," Raila Odinga told the journalists.

However,the Commission stated that it has not ruled out using a manual register, but that it will be a last resort.

Shortly after Ruto sat down, the presidential candidate for the Roots Party, George Wajackoyah, also left after his secretary general, Aden Kadernani, excused himself.
