"I Don't Believe We Lost Election" Kalonzo Musyoka

On January 15, Kalonzo Musyoka, the leader of the Wiper Party, pleaded for prayers to help him escape what he called a "political prison."

The statements were made by the former vice president as he was taking part in a KUSCO (Kiambu University and College Students Association) thanksgiving celebration at the City of Refuge Church in Thika, Kiambu County.

Kalonzo clarified that the reason he was behind bars was because he had been out of the political loop for more than ten years.

"I have witnessed three rigged elections: in 2013, 2017, and 2022.

"Please pray for me to get out of this prison, Apostles and Kenyans in general," he begged.

Kalonzo stated that he had not yet accepted the outcome of the general election on August 9, 2022, in which his Azimio party was defeated by Kenya Kwanza.

"I still do not believe we lost the election as a lot of malpractices was witnessed during the process. The only way we can move forward is if we get a thorough audit of what happened during the election," Kalonzo told the congregation.

In order to put the subject to rest, Kalonzo encouraged international groups to assist the audit process.

"We want organizations like Transparency International to provide us the audit report of what transpired on August 9, 2022." He stated.

Kalonzo also criticized the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for interfering with the elections, particularly Chairman Wafula Chebukati.

"Because Chebukati and the Supreme Court are fallible human beings who are capable of making mistakes, the story of our elections cannot end with them.

"Regarding the future of the nation, It is the audit report that will bring peace and stability to our country because there cannot be justice without peace." Kalonzo said.
