Kenyatta is declared Kenya’s controversial presidential election winner
Despite disputing the declaration by the electoral commission that Uhuru Kenyatta won the presidential election, Prime Minister Raila Odinga has urged Kenyans to remain peaceful.
He urged Kenyans to await the decision of the Supreme Court on the election and abide by the law.
He disputed the declaration of Uhuru as President-elect, citing “massive irregularities” that marred the votes and subsequent tallying.
The CORD leader claimed there was massive tampering of the results and some figures were cooked and promised to provide evidence.
“Let the Supreme Court determine whether the result announced by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission is lawful. We are confident the court will restore the faith of Kenyans in the democratic rule if law,” Raila said.
The Premier did not indicate the day they intend to move to court but according to the Constitution, they have seven days from on Saturday when Uhuru was declared president, to file the petition. The Supreme Court will then have 14 days to hear the dispute and make a ruling.
