Written by Kayode Sanni on August 16, 2022
RAILA ODINGA has rejected the results of Kenya’s presidential election saying that the figures announced on Monday were null and void.
According to the results, ODINGA narrowly lost to Deputy President WILLIAM RUTO.
But ODINGA in his addresses in front of supporters in the capital, Nairobi accused the head of the electoral body of disregarding the constitution, alleging that there was neither a legally elected winner nor a president-elect.
ODINGA also accused the chairman of the electoral body WAFULA CHEBUKATI of “gross impunity” saying his team will pursue all legal options.
Meanwhile, the 77-year-old long-time opposition leader was running for president for the fifth time and has challenged the results in the previous two elections.
