National: Raila Meets MP Junet and Two 2022 Election Losers

Azimio La Umoja flag-bearer Raila Odinga has met Suna East Member of Parliament-elect Junet Mohammed, together with two other 2022 general election losers.

In a post that was shared on Social media on Tuesday, Raila noted in Swahili that he got a chance to consult with the individuals who paid him an impromptu visit.

According to the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga, their consultation centered on the current political issues in Kenya. He averred that they were unified in making sure that they fight for Kenyans' benefit.

The two individual politicians, besides Junet include former Nakuru governor Lee Kinyanjui and Kieni ex-Member of Parliament James Mathenge alias Kanini Kega.

"I have consulted with my confidants on current issues. We shall move on together as a team to actualize Kenya's hopes," the post read.

This comes as the Supreme Court of Kenya kick-starts hearing of a petition challenging declaration of president-elect Dr William Ruto on August 15th. The case was presented by Raila, who became the runner-up in the presidential election.

Raila argued that his rival, Dr Ruto, did not genuinely win the polls. He points a finger of accusation at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for aiding and abetting corrupt deals which might have led to him being denied victory. He asked the court to nullify Dr Ruto's win because he did not attain the constitutional threshold to be declared president-elect.

Four IEBC commissioners, Juliana Cherera, Irene, Wanderi and Nyangaya have joined Raila in calling for invalidation of Ruto's win because there was no transparency in the final process of verification and tallying of results.
