Finally, NASA Presidential candidate Raila Odinga has announced he will move to Supreme Court to challenge Presidential election results.
In a statement to the press on Wednesday in Lavington, Raila said after wider consultations, they have decided to challenge the results.
He said this will give the Supreme Court an opportunity to redeem itself.
“The court can use this chance to redeem itself, or, like in 2013, it can compound the problems we face as a country,” reports the Star.
He said NASA produce “compelling evidence” in court to prove he was rigged out.
IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati declared Uhuru Kenyatta the winner after garnering 8,203,290 votes against Raila’s 6,762,224 votes.
Raila had first disputed the election results on Wednesday and termed the election as a fraud.
He said that IEBC systems were hacked and a formula set which gave Uhuru more votes.
“Jubilee shamelessly cooked the results through non-existent forms 34A. An algorithm was put in place to manipulate original results keyed in,” he stated.
“The commission refused to address all the questions submitted by NASA and rather announced Uhuru president-elect though forms 34A had not bene verified. We are not going to accept computer generated leaders until all our concerns are addressed.
On Friday last week, his Deputy Chief Agent James Orengo said the results were tilted to favor Uhuru Kenyatta.
Orengo at that moment termed the election as “a charade”.
His decision comes a day after the UN declined to conduct an analysis of the polls as suggested by the NASA Presidential candidate on Sunday.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on Raila to use legal channels to address his concerns.
