We shall carry out a citizen’s arrest on Chebukati Raila Odinga’s legislatures threaten

by Chief Okuzo

Former prime Minister Raila Odinga is accusing the Chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati for planning a civilian coup by toppling the will of the people  in the August 9 presidential election..

Speaking at the African Inland Church (AIC) Kibra, the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party leader maintained that the 9.8.2022 polls were full of “pantomime” following the announcement of William Ruto as the president-elect.

He also assured his supporters that he wlll not backoff until Justice is served at the Supreme Court.

For now we don’t want to talk about issues which are before the court because that is subjudice. But we want to say that the divisions at the IEBC where Mr Chebukati has two commissioners on his side and four commissioners on the other side is a shame to our democracy and the whole world,” Mr Odinga said.

He also lauded his supporters for maintaining peace across the country following Chebukati’s 9th August announcement adding that only justice can guarantee peace and reconciliation in a nation.

“The late Archbishop Desmond Tutu once said that without truth, there can be no justice, without justice, there can be no peace and without peace there can be no reconciliation. For there to be reconciliation in this country, the truth must be known and if there is truth then there will be justice, then reconciliation so that we can move together as one united nation,” Mr Odinga said.

Shortly after the church service, the Azimio legislators assembled at the Kamukunji ground in kibera echoing their leader’s remarks.

Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi demanded for the immediate prosecution of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Chairman Wafula Chebukati, saying that the IEBC boss had committed several electoral offences.

We are demanding that Chebukati be taken to court even before September 5 when the Supreme Court shall deliver its verdict. We must this time round end this electoral theft and hold those responsible to account, Mr Wandayi stated.

Nyando MP Jared Okello, on the other hand slammed the the international community for recognizing William Ruto as the president-elect as Mathare Mp Anthony Oluoch threatened to carry out a citizen’s arrest on the Iebc chairperson.

“If the DCI will not institute criminal proceedings against Mr Chebukati, we shall carry out a citizen’s arrest,” Mathare MP Anthony Oluoch said.
