Kenya’s Raila Odinga rejects presidential results


GOOBJOOG NEWS|NAIROBI: Azimio La Umoja Coalition Leader Raila Odinga has a few minutes ago addressed the nation a day after IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati announced presidential election results.

Mr. Odinga rejected results announced by the Kenya Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) – calling them – Null and void.

Mr Chebukati declared Kenya Kwanza candidate William Ruto as the President-elect after garnering 7,176,141 votes beating Mr Odinga who got 6,942,930 votes.

“Our view in Azimio is clear, the figures by Wafula Chebukati are null and void and must be quashed by a court of law. In our view there is neither a legally and validly declared winner nor a president-elect,” said Odinga.

Odinga commended his supporters for remaining calm and urged them to continue doing so, promising to pursue Azimio’s electoral grievances through the set constitutional dispute resolution mechanisms and the Supreme Court.
