Ruto Reacts After Raila's Team Wrote to IEBC Demanding Answers on 'Extra' IEBC Forms (VIDEO)

Kenya Kwanza flag bearer William Ruto has reacted after the Azimio-One Kenya Coalition presidential candidate Raila Odinga sparked another row with the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) over alternative set of results declaration forms replete with all security elements.

Azimio’s chief legal adviser, Paul Mwangi wrote a letter to IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati that the electoral agency had not provided sufficient answers to their question concerning the extra book.

This is after IEBC commissioners in Athens told poll stakeholders that extra Form 34As were needed in each polling station because observers, media, and other stakeholders wanted a copy.

“We reject this explanation because Book 2 of 2 from which it is alleged copies for stakeholders will be obtained is more than just a copy.It is actually a fully-fledged Form 34As complete with all security features similar to those in Book 1 of 2,” Mwangi said in the letter.

Now, speaking during a Kenya Kwanza rally at Maua, Meru County today, Ruto claimed said that his opponents from the Azimio wing's complains towards the IEBC is only but a plan to reject the outcome of the election. He claimed that the Azimio wing have realised that they will not win the election.

"Wanajua tutawashinda sasa wameanza stories. Mtu wa Kitendawili anasema ati mara iko shida na Chebukati, mara kuna shida na register, mara IEBC. Wachana na IEBC, tunajua ukora wako (There have realised that we will win now they have started stories. The person of 'Kitendawili' is saying that there is a problem with Chebukati, register, sometimes IEBC, we know your plan)," Ruto said.

"Anaenda kugombana na IEBC ya nini? Hiyo story ameanza ni ya kukataa uchaguzi (Why is he fighting the IEBC? That story he has started is to reject the results of election)," he added.
