Raila's Tweet About Manual Transmission In 2016 That Now Haunts Him In 2022

Raila Odinga has been on the spotlight as him and his party have been pushing to have the manual register and transmission of results done manually alongside the electronic transmission. The court had already ruled that there will only be electronic transmission of results but then the Raila party has remained adamant and even threatened that there would be no elections if at all this situation doesn't change.

However a tweet that Raila made in 2016 might now haunt him in 2022.

Raila in December 2016 lauded the electronic transmission and argued that most countries had used it before in registeration, electronic identification and electronic transmission successfully without reverting to manual.

The issue of manual transmission was one of the issues that came out during the 2017 election verdict by the Supreme Court. Raila has however changed tune and now wants the manual one. They are still pushing and we wait to see what happens.
