Azimio La Umoja Coalition Leader Raila Odinga has rejected presidential results a day after IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati’s announcement at Bomas.
Speaking on Tuesday, Raila said that Chebukati has no absolute power over other commissioners.
He said the IEBC chair’s actions are dictatorial, claiming he could have led the court to violence.
“He could have plunged the country into chaos. Such impunity can be a threat to security. It is not up to us to determine whether Chebukati has committed illegality,” he said.
“Four protested the action… Commissioners walked out. Figures announced by Chebukati are null and void and must be quashed by a court of law.”
Mr Chebukati declared Kenya Kwanza candidate William Ruto as the President-elect after garnering 7,176,141votes beating Mr Odinga who got 6,942,930 Votes.
The Azimio leader was missing in action at Bomas of Kenya where IEBC announced the results. In even a bigger twist, four out of the seven IEBC commissioners disowned the presidential results moments before Mr Chebukati proclaimed the winner of the hotly contested poll.
The commissioners, including vice chair Juliana Cherera, commissioners Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit and Justus Nyang’aya, alleged that the final results were arrived at in an opaque manner, without giving further details.
