Raila's legal team led by former Attorney General Amos Wako reiterated that they are ready to present the petition at Supreme Court to challenge Ruto's victory which was announced by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission's chairperson Wafula Chabukati.
Wako confirmed that the petition has been worked on by legal minds and it will be submitted to the Supreme Court for deliberations to be made over it. The former Attorney General also confirmed that they are still hopeful that victory is coming there way since they have gathered enough evidence that shows that Raila Odinga was the winner in the last election.
While speaking on Sunday August 21 to Kenyans.co.ke, Wako revealed that he was part of Raila's legal team which was formulating the petition before it goes ahead to the Supreme Court.
He added that the coalition's lawyers shared the document with him and Senior Counsel James Orengo for a final read before submitting it to the Supreme Court registry tomorrow.
"Being a senior counsel, they asked me to go travel to Nairobi so that I can have a look at the work that the lawyers have compiled" Wako revealed.
