Nderitu Murithi, Azimio Campaign Manager Explains How They Are Preparing For A Run-off

Nderitu Muriithi, who served as Raila Odinga's campaign manager and was a former governor of Laikipia, stated that Odinga has a feeling that there will be another election.

Raila has subsequently challenged the results of the election that took place on August 9 by taking his case to the Supreme Court, and the court is scheduled to issue its decision tomorrow.

According to Muriithi, they have reason to assume that a rematch would be mandated, and they have started making preparations for it in the hopes of emerging victorious in the end.

He stated on Sunday to the Daily Nation that they have started gathering to prepare their campaigns in preparation for the possibility that the court may mandate another poll in sixty days.

The politician has said that in order to devise the most effective measures, they are also considering the developments that have taken place in the time since the election in August.

"The primary focus of the sessions is on the current state of play. You will find that Azimio performed better in the elections that had been postponed and that were finally held after the delay. He is quoted as saying that the two main characters were pleased with how the week's performance went.

Jeremiah Kioni, the Secretary General of the Jubilee Party, agreed with him and said that the party is, in fact, getting ready for another election. His remarks were echoed by other party officials.

If there is to be another election, the outgoing representative for Ndaragwa in the Parliament has announced that statements concerning their future intentions will be made at the appropriate time.

On Friday, I spent the day with Raila, and after hearing the Supreme Court's decision, many things are likely to take place. According to what he is cited as saying, the decision would have significant political repercussions, some of which will spill over into the leadership of the House.

Raila has refused to acknowledge that Deputy President William Ruto was victorious over him in the election that has already come to a close, as was declared by the Chair of the IEBC, Wafula Chebukati.

Through his legal representation, he has contended that his victory was fraudulently obtained, going so far as to attempt to show the judge how the alleged theft may have taken place.

His petition is supported by a number of other petitioners and four of the seven members of the IEBC, led by Vice Chair Juliana Cherera.
