Raila Speaks After Wiper Meeting, States How They are Going to Make Stealing of Elections Expensive

Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga on Friday toured the Ukambani region where they attended a prayer meeting that was convened by Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka. The Azimio la Umoja leader was accompanied by his close allies including Martha Karua, Edwin Sifuna, and Maina Njenga among other leaders.

While speaking after the meeting, Raila Odinga reiterated that Azimio la Umoja coalition won last year's general elections but they were rigged out. The vocal leader of the opposition said that the consequences of rigging are now affecting the country via the runaway taxes that are now rising the cost of living.

Raila Odinga stated that they are going to make rigging of general elections so expensive that no one will ever consider rigging once again. He also stated that until when the issue of election injustice is settled in the country there will be no peace.

The former Prime Minister further warned President William Ruto during the meeting that he must open the IEBC servers to establish who won last year's general elections. He threatened to return to the streets if the government fails to respond to their demands.

This comes after the leader of the opposition suspended the bipartisan talks saying that the government is not negotiating in good faith. Raila insisted that unless the government shows some progress in the next few days, he will consider the bipartisan talks dead.
