Amani National Congress nominated MP Godfrey Osotsi who is campaigning for Raila Odinga's presidential bid and Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga have in separate pressers dismissed calls by Deputy President William Ruto's camp to have Chief Justice Martha Koome distance herself from the committee planning on elections.
A number of Ruto allies have in the past couple of weeks claimed that it was unfortunate for Koome to sit on the table with other leaders preparing on the elections, yet once conflicts arise from the presidential election results, she will be the determinant of who will have won.
The leaders argued that it was important for the CJ to maintain a neutral stand owing to the fact that the Judiciary is an independent arm of the government.
Speaking in Jacaranda when he had accompanied Raila for a political rally on Sunday, Osotsi stated that Koome was attending to her duties, and thus the UDA brigade should look for votes without dragging the CJ in to their fears.
"Ruto has started to tense after seeing Raila successfully climbing the mountain. He is now telling Chief Justice to keep away from preparations of elections. We are telling him that Raila will win in 2022 and he will become the president," posed Osotsi.
Addressing residents of Gwassi South Ward, Wanga said that Ruto had sensed defeat after witnessing the crowds and support Raila had pulled, telling off the hustler camp while arguing that the committee was nothing new and it was there in the past elections.
