Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga has announced that tomorrow is the day his team will be filing a case at the Supreme Court to challenge the election of his Kenya Kwanza opponent, William Ruto, as President.
The former Prime Minister announced this at a church service at Jesus Teaching Ministry (JTM) in Donholm, Nairobi while accompanied by his running mate Martha Karua and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka.
“There is no doubt in our mind that the Kenyan people spoke loudly on the 9th of August. Their voice won’t be muzzled and their victory won’t be taken away,” Raila said.
His confidence was shared by Martha Karua who said that she is assured their camp will get justice from the Supreme Court.
“We shall know the truth and it shall set all of us free for without justice there cannot be lasting peace. Justice is the foundation of lasting peace,” she said.
Kalonzo Musyoka also held his spirit high and is hopeful that the Supreme Court will heed their plea.
“We leave this place ready to pursue them and the mandate to pursue them has been ably presented. To Kenyans please stand still and see the salvation of God,” he said.
The Ukambani kingpin said the postponement of the election in Kakamega and Mombasa counties is a sure sign that the polls were compromised.
“As far as I’m concerned, the lawyer in me tells me this General Election is not over.”
