Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio party, has revealed how former President Uhuru Kenyatta prepared for the general election in August 2022.
Since losing in the August elections, Raila Odinga has insisted that Ruto was defeated by him on an even playing field and that his victory had been abruptly taken from him. Even with President Uhuru Kenyatta's support, many were surprised by how Ruto managed to get them into State House.
The Azimio leader has now revealed that President Uhuru Kenyatta wanted a free and fair election, despite questions still being raised over whether he really did want Raila to succeed him.
Speaking in Mombasa County, Raila Odinga defended Uhuru against allegations that he tampered with the election or turned to the much-heralded and dreaded "deep state" for assistance.
"Uhuru Kenyatta had declared that his government would not intervene with the election and that he wanted it to be free and fair. The public is aware of what occurred, "Odinga declared.
Regarding Uhuru Kenyatta's absence from a number of Azimio events, Raila assured the Azimio camp that Uhuru is still an active member and serves as the chairman.
"Along with the gospel of Saint John, there is the gospel of Matthew (Wafula Chebukati), Siant Mark (Juliana Cherera), and Luke (Jackson Ole Sapit). Saint John will reveal the details of what occurred at the Kenyan Bomas. A lot of people are waiting for me to speak, but I'll wait for him first "He clarified.
