ODM Party boss and Azimio la Umoja - One Kenya Alliance Presidential Candidate Raila Odinga has claimed that there are plans to steal the 2022 August presidential elections.

Speaking during a campaign drive in Kiambu County, Raila warned Wafula Chebukati's IEBC saying they should introduce the use of manual registers to complement electronic ones or else they will boycott the elections.

Raila went ahead to make allegations that some people had been sent to Greece to influence the printing of ballot papers and have extra 2 million papers printed for the presidential race.

The ODM boss claimed that such ballot papers will be then sent back to Kenya where 10,000 polling stations have allegedly been identified for ballot paper stashing.

"They have plans to steal our votes, there is one man who has sent people to Greece where IEBC is printing ballot papers. They want them to print excess ballot papers that will bring trouble to the country. They will bring such ballot papers to Kenya and they have identified nearly 10,000 polling stations where they will take such excess ballot papers," claimed Raila

He claimed that each of the identified polling stations will stash 200 ballot papers to get their competitor an extra 2 million votes. He warned that they will not go into the polls if IEBC wll not introduce the use of a manual register.

"They will stash 200 ballot papers in each of the polling stations so that they can get the 2 million extra votes they are aiming for. That is the reason why Mr. Chebukati has refused to use the manual register. The manual register will tell us how many people have voted in a particular polling station. There is no record that will remain behind in the electronic register. The manual register is a must at each and every polling station. that is not negotiable, if they cannot have the two registers, there will be no elections," Added Raila
