Veteran journalist Kamau Ngotho speculates that President William Ruto may have known that if he looked into what happened before he was declared the winner, things might blow up in his face.
In August of last year, according to Ruto, there was a plot to rig the election in favor of Raila Odinga, a candidate for the Azimio La Umoja party.
He claimed that the plan involved the kidnapping and maybe murder of former IEBC chairwoman Wafula Chebukati at some stage, and that he would look into the situation and hold those responsible accountable.
This is as he stresses the need for Ruto to keep his word, telling him that it is only this way that Kenya can avoid the reoccurrence of such in future polls.
"Surely, Kenyans and the world need to know the truth to avoid such precarious situations in the future," he adds.
Raila has been claiming that according to the data, allegedly availed by an insider within the IEBC, he got over 8 million votes against Ruto's 5.9 million.
He has consequently declared Ruto an illegitimate President and has been holding rallies in a bid to force him to resign and let him occupy the office.
