What Raila Said After Admitting That Tuju And Salat Met Cherera-4 At Yaya

The former prime minister Raila Odinga has broken his silence on meetings that leaders associated to his azimio la umoja coalition held with the four independent electoral and boundaries commission (IEBC) commissioners at a rented house in Nairobi.

The four: vice chairperson Juliana Cherera, Francis Wanderi, Irene masit and Justus Nyangaya disowned the results announced by the chairman Wafula chebukati.

Petitions challenging their suitability to hold office have since been filed forcing three of them to resign save for Irene masit who is facing a tribunal.

In last week's proceedings of the tribunal, it was revealed that the four embattled commissioners met two azimio leaders namely: Raphael Tuju and Nick salat at Yaya apartment. This was confirmed later on by the management of the apartment.

Speaking to citizen TV on Tuesday night, Raila defended the visits saying his team was in protest of the results chebukati announced and wanted to know the Truth.

“The politicians were justified to visit these commissioners because they were saying No. Our people were actually justified to finding out the truth, because that was already ex post facto. The result had already been announced by Mr Chebukati,” said Raila.

It's worth noting that Just before the commissioners arrived at Yaya, they had addressed a parallel press briefing distancing themselves from chebukati results.

Further Raila claimed that the tribunal that was formed by president William Ruto to Investigate the four is illegal.
