Raila Odinga Calls For Public Rally At Kamukunji Grounds On Monday
Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party leader Raila Odinga is expected to jet back into the country on Monday and thereafter hold a public rally at the Kamukunji Grounds.
Mr. Odinga has been in South Africa for the past week for a series of meetings in his capacity as the AU High Representative for Infrastructure Development in Africa.
His spokesperson Dennis Onyango, in a statement to newsrooms on Saturday, announced that the opposition chief will land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on the said day at 11am.
“Upon arrival, Mr. Odinga will proceed to the Kamukunji grounds in Kamukunji Constituency for a People’s Baraza consultations with the public where they will discuss recent disclosures by a whistle blower on the conduct of the 2022 general election,” stated Mr. Onyango.
“Mr. Odinga appeals to Kenyans to show up in large numbers at the Kamukunji Baraza, in the interest of the country.”
This comes after Azimio leaders on Thursday promised to issue a comprehensive statement in regards to a report detailing how the August 2022 General Election was allegedly rigged in favour of President William Ruto once Mr. Odinga returns to Kenya.
The leaders, led by Wiper party chief Kalonzo Musyoka, labeled the alleged revelations as startling while questioning whether Kenya is truly a democratic country since the outcome of the polls were reportedly influenced.
“In a few days our coalition leader who is abroad will be arriving into the country and we will give Kenyans a way forward. At that time we will collectively issue a public statement together with the data and the direction the country should take following these revelations,” said Musyoka.
“The data calls into question the outcome of the presidential elections and the credibility and legitimacy of our entire electoral system and infrastructure. There are more revelations in our possession that will unearth the theft in the 2022 General Election. This was not an election but a sham.”
The report, which Azimio says was released by an alleged IEBC whistleblower, claims that Mr. Odinga won the presidential polls after garnering 8,170,355 votes ahead of Ruto who reportedly managed 5,919,973 votes.
