In their court filings, the lawyers claim that it would be illegal for the official candidate of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party to campaign for the post, despite having participated in an illegal protest.
They figured out that assuming he was cleared to race, it would be an awful benchmark for different competitors. "The claim will be overwhelmed with opportunities if the 6th and 7th defendants are not promptly banned from engaging in discretionary activity until proven guilty," the attorneys said.
In a reaction through his lawyers, Raila requested that the court excuse the appeal by expressing that the court needed jurisdiction to give assurance regarding the injustice. “The issues raised in the motion are charges of treason and therefore criminal in nature and this court needs a venue to hear and decide criminal cases,” Raila argued.
He added that there had been no review regarding the case and that he should not be considered blameworthy until he was charged by the state. Earlier, Raila disclosed that many of President Uhuru Kenyatta's associates wanted him to be charged with treason, adding that the president had been kind to him.
Uhuru was informed that Raila had gone too far and that the swearing added to a conspiracy. They informed him that I should be charged and hanged in Kamiti prison. Uhuru refused the appeals. Later we met and had a long talk and concluded that Kenya is bigger than all of us,” Raila said.
