2 Min Read

Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya leader Raila Odinga has announced that he will hold a rally at the Kamukunji Grounds, when he jets back into the country on Monday, January 23.

Odinga has been in South Africa since January 13, where he held meetings as the AU High Representative for Infrastructure Development in Africa. He also held meetings with government leaders, NGOs and business leaders.

In a statement to newsrooms on Saturday, January 21, his spokesperson Dennis Onyango said that Odinga is expected to land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) at 11 am Monday.

He will thereafter go to the Kamukunji Grounds for a People’s Baraza with the public on recent disclosures by a whistleblower on the August 9, 2022 presidential election.

“Mr Odinga appeals to Kenyans to show up in large numbers at the Kamukunji Baraza, in the interest of the country,” said Onyango.

The Azimio team alleges that the presidential election outcome was altered in favour of President William Ruto.

On Tuesday Jubilee secretary General Jeremiah Kioni while referencing a whistle blowers report claimed that Raila won the polls after garnering 8,170,355 votes ahead of President William Ruto who reportedly managed 5,919,973 votes.

“59 percent of the constituencies examined showed results that cannot be verified with absolute certainty but again, in the same document, what has been verified so far shows that Raila won the elections with 8,170,355 votes representing 57.53 of the votes cast. Ruto got 5,915,973 votes representing 41.66 pc of the votes cast,” said Kioni.

According to Kioni, the report shows that voting results from 144 constituencies were allegedly altered by some IEBC officials to give Ruto an edge in the contest.  Ruto on the other hand has been categorical that it is Azimio who wanted to alter the elections in order to subvert the will of the people.
