Raila would be President if Uhuru appointed Justice Ouko as Chief justice: Babu Owino claims.

Embakasi East Member of parliament has amazed Kenyans after this declaration went viral.In a press briefing, Mr. Owino alias Paul Ongili claimed that justice Ouko was overqualified and hence deserved the position more than the present Chief justice Martha Koome. He added that Mr. Odinga would have been the president if the former president had gifted Ouko the position of the president of the judiciary

The former president Uhuru Kenyatta played a big role in his succession politics pledging his full support for the Azimio leader Raila Odinga who lost to President William Ruto. The coalition has since had multiple altercations leading to some leaders defecting from the coalition and instead seeking refuge in president Ruto's camp.

The utterance by Babu has attracted myriads of reactions from the media. This comes days after the legislator admitted to confronting the former PS Karanja Kibicho on arresting the IEBC chair on the eve of the election results announcement.
