Accept You Lost Elections And Leave State House To Me, Raila Tells Ruto

Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga has asked President William Ruto to accept that he did not win the August 2022 presidential elections.

While addressing congregants at the Jesus Teaching Ministry in Donholm, Nairobi on Sunday, Raila said that faulted Ruto for the high taxation in the country.

“Accept that you were defeated in the election, leave State House for Baba to get in. We are speaking the truth, we do not want war, and we do not want threats. We have our rights as Kenyans, and it can not be snatched by a hawk, Kenyans deserve a leader that they elected,” he said.

The Azimio leader further reacted to a move by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to investigate claims of rigging in the 2022 polls.

Raila said that the truth can only be revealed if Azimio is allowed to scrutinize the Independence Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) servers.

“I have seen DCI (Mohamed Amin) saying he wants to conduct an investigation. DCI, you are an employee of Ruto, you can not conduct investigations’ ,” Raila stated.

In a statement dated January 25, DCI boss Amin Mohamed noted that the police branch has received numerous complaints regarding the elections, faulting the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for running a faulty election.

“Instructively, the complainants contend that there are various manipulations that point to documentary falsification and outright forgery of the subject documents,” read part of the statement. 

He said DCI is investigating the validity and authenticity of the documents in question, asking IEBC to provide Forms 34B that were used to tally, verify and declare the result of the presidential elections of 9th August 2022.

After the Sunday service, Raila headed to Jacaranda stadium where he is set to hold his second consultative meeting with his supporters.
