Check Out What Julie Soweto Has Said About Raila Months After Representing Him In The SCOK

Julie Soweto, a controversial lawyer who was one of the lawyers who represented Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga in the supreme Court presidential election petition, is now representing Evans Kidero, a former governor of Nairobi, in his effort to prevent Gladys Wanga from winning the gubernatorial race in Homa Bay.

The alleged use of Raila's name to influence voters is one of Mrs. Soweto's mounting evidence against Wanga's victory.Soweto claims that Mrs. Wanga "forced" voters to vote for her by using Raila's name.

Whether Mr. Odinga's name was used to influence the vote is the question here. "Yes, it is accurate that the name intoxicated voters' minds," Soweto told the court.

Mr. Okinyi Rao's affidavit, which details how Raila is alleged to have influenced every grassroots poll in the region, has been submitted by Soweto and her legal team.

In response, Wanga asserted that she could not avoid mentioning Raila because he is the leader of her party. Because it would require Raila to appear in court, Wanga wants Kidero's attorney to remove Raila's name from their arguments.

Soweto and her team demand a new inspection of all voting materials.A recount is what they want.
