Azimio boss Raila Odinga has opened up on one the things that the supreme Court did that made him doubt the impartiality of the judges and conclude that the court worked in favour of his competitor president William Ruto.
In an exclusive interview, the former Prime Minister stated that his lawyers constantly pushed the supreme Court to compel the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission open up their servers to their IT experts for scrutiny. Unfortunately, this was not achieved.
Smartmatic claimed that opening up the servers to Azimio would infringe their property rights. As a result, Azimio did not access all the servers they wanted to be allowed to access.
As revealed by Raila himself, the failure of the court to take a great concern of Smartmatic's move to reject opening up the servers made him doubt the impartiality of the court.
"The court did not find Smartmatic's move to reject opening up the servers as strange. The court did not see this as strange, that's why we have our doubts about their impartiality," said Raila.
According to Raila, the court should have taken great concern on Smartmatic's letter rejecting opening of the servers. Failure by the judges to find Smartmatic's letter strange simply made Raila conclude that the judges favoured his opponent.
