Kimilili Constituency Member of Parliament (MP) Didmus Barasa has declared that he will deal with Raila Odinga in case he boycott 2022 General Elections while cautioning Chief Justice (CJ) Martha Koome.
Taking to the social media, the outspoken legislator and close ally of Deputy President William Ruto warned the CJ against involving herself with matters elections.
According to him, Koome shouldn't take part in the steering committee on election which he claims to be illegal. He explained that the constitution does not advocate formulation of an election preparation committee adding that her role is to wait for a petition if there will be any.
Barasa further claimed that he is ready to deal with the ODM party leader in case he decides to boycott elections. He urged the CJ to leave that to him explaining that he has phone number of the Chief from Raila's village whom he can call in that matter (watch the video from 0:27).
His remarks comes amid pressure from Ruto's camp on the CJ and Cabinet Secretaries for Interior and ICT Dr Fred Matiang'i and Joe Mucheru over their involvement in planning on the General Elections.
The three have however vowed to work in the committee claiming their involvement has no any interference with the work of IEBC.
