Raila Odinga, the leader of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party, has praised President William Ruto’s intention to look into the conduct of the presidential election in August 2022, particularly what happened in the Bomas of Kenya after the results were announced.
This occurs a few days after President Ruto voiced reluctance to form a committee to look into the events at Bomas before the release of the presidential results in a roundtable chat with media.
According to Mr. Odinga, who spoke on Friday in Mombasa, the investigation into the General Election of August 9, 2022 must be sincere because Kenyans have a right to know the truth about what happened.
The Azimio leader defended the four IEBC commissioners under fire—Juliana Cherera, Irene Masit, Francis Wanderi, and Justus Nyang’aya—saying that President Ruto’s administration is not being truthful in its investigation into the general election.
Instead, Mr. Odinga claims that the election was rigged and says that the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague should file charges against IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati.
In response to rumors of an internal split, he added that he is dedicated to keeping the Azimio coalition party together.
The ODM party leader continued to attack his detractors by announcing that he is not yet leaving politics.
