Jubilee Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni has been sued at the Supreme Court for perpetuating claims that Raila Odinga won the 2022 Presidential polls.
Kioni, who has been a vocal supporter of Odinga, is accused of engaging in the distortion of facts, polls regarding the August 2022 Presidential Election, which Dr William Ruto won against his closest challenger Raila.
The suit, which was filed by a group of concerned citizens, accuses Kioni of spreading false information that could potentially cause civil unrest in the country. The plaintiffs claim that Kioni's statements are baseless and unsupported by any evidence, and that they are part of a larger scheme to discredit the results of the 2022 polls.
The case is set to be heard at the Supreme Court, where the plaintiffs will argue that Kioni's statements have the potential to incite violence and destabilize the country. They are calling for Kioni to be held accountable for his actions and for him to retract his statements.
The suit comes at a time when Kenya is grappling with political tension and uncertainty following the 2022 election. While Dr Ruto was declared the winner of the election, Odinga and his supporters have refused to accept the results, alleging widespread fraud and irregularities.
The government has taken a tough stance on the matter, warning that anyone found spreading false information or inciting violence will be held accountable.
The Supreme Court, which has been tasked with resolving any disputes arising from the election, will have a critical role to play in determining the future of the country.
The case against Kioni is likely to be closely watched by Kenyans, who are hoping for a peaceful resolution to the current political crisis. Many believe that the Supreme Court's decision will have a significant impact on the country's stability and future prospects.
