Raila sends Kenyans message ahead of Supreme Court ruling

Raila asks Kenyans to keep him and the Azimio la Umoja coalition in their prayers ahead of the Supreme Court ruling.

Azimio leader Raila Odinga has asked Kenyans to keep him and the coalition in their prayers ahead of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the presidential election petition.

Speaking during a meeting with a delegation of Meru leaders on Sunday, September 4, Raila made a clarion call to his supporters to pray for continued peace even after the verdict has been rendered.

He reiterated that the petition was a quest for justice, which he hoped would prevail on Monday, September 5, for the sake of Kenyans.

“Kenyans should continue to have us in their prayers, we pray for peace and wisdom. We hope that the supreme court will deliver a fair ruling which will help us to strengthen the democracy in the country,” the flagbearer reiterated.

However, when questioned on whether he would accept the outcome of the court, he declined to give a definite answer.

“I will not want to speculate or anticipate the outcome of the court. I believe that our judges are people who are learned, qualified, and are fair and therefore will deliver a just ruling,” Odinga remarked.

Raila Odinga was accompanied by his running mate Martha Karua, CS Peter Munya, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed, former Murang’a Woman Representative Sabina Chege, former Kitui governor Charity Ngilu, and ex-Mombasa county chief Hassan Joho.

The Azimio leader said he had high hopes and confidence in the seven judges of the apex court deciding his petition against the validity of President-elect William Ruto’s declaration as the August 9 presidential elections winner.

“We are confident that our cause is just. I don’t want to speculate or anticipate the ruling of the court but I believe that the judges are people who are learned and qualified and fair therefore I believe that they will deliver a just ruling,” said Raila.

The Supreme Court led by Chief Justice Martha Koome is set to give its ruling today in the presidential petition.
