National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga has finally spoken after the declaration of President Uhuru Kenyatta as the winner of the fresh election.
Speaking at Okoa Kenya offices in Nairobi on Tuesday afternoon, Odinga labelled the concluded poll as a ‘sham election’ that was fictitious.
The opposition leader lauded his supporters for heeding to the call to boycott the election noting that it exposed the tyranny of numbers as a fallacy.
Odinga stated that the country was sharply divided as a result of Kenyatta’s election and revealed that signs were clear from the onset that the Head of State would do anything to emerge victorious.
He revealed that he had met Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chairman Wafula Chebukati prior to the election who communicated that he was not in a position to deliver a credible poll.
The former Prime Minister also took time to comment on the number of votes he got in the fresh poll stating that there was something amiss with the numbers because, for every 10,000 votes he got, Kenyatta got 1 million.
He bashed the IEBC for misrepresenting the voter turnout divulging that according to his statistics, only 3.5 million votes were cast.
This is 4 million votes less than what IEBC posted and Odinga stated the poll body manufactured numbers to ensure Kenyatta got over 7 million votes.
He further added that the lack of quorum at the Supreme Court a day before the election was questionable. He further condemned the shooting of Deputy Chief Justice Philomena Mwilu’s bodyguard.
The NASA leader then stated that his team was ready for dialogue since it is the only way to solve political conflicts adding that those in government were continually frustrating the process.
