Raila silently jets into the country as he reveals why what he was doing in Zanzibar
Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Amolo Odinga has returned back to Kenya after he flew to Zanzibar following the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President William Ruto’s win on August 9.
Raila Odinga claimed that after losing the general election on August 9 he traveled with his entire family to rest.
He continued by saying that after suffering a facial injury, he went on vacation to rest.
Raila spoke during a celebration honoring Mombasa Governor Abdulswamad Nassir, who took office on September 15th.
“I went to recuperate in Zanzibar. I took my wife, children, and grandchildren out of the shock they got,” he stated.
“I came this morning from Zanzibar and arrived late than expected. I was not able to be with you at the swearing-in (of Abdulswamad), but here I am,” Raila stated.
Raila congratulated the governor for winning the election, claiming that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) intentionally postponed the Mombasa gubernatorial election to manipulate the election.
“The people of Mombasa overwhelmingly voted for Azimio. The same thing happened in Kakamega. I want to thank the people of the two counties for standing with Azimio.
At the same time, the former prime minister criticized the judiciary for its unanimous decision to uphold Ruto’s victory.
He likened the Judiciary verdict to a dictator, claiming that it imposed its findings on Kenyans.
However, he urged his supporters to wait for the detailed verdict, which is set to be made public by the Supreme Court.
“The ruling was judicial thuggery and we will not allow these types of things. We will not allow the judiciary to become a dictator.”
“We can lead a one million march to the judiciary and tell them to go home. We have a right as a people to not agree with bad rulings,” Raila explained.
