Raila’s Ex-Spokesman Salim Lone speaks on IEBC’s declaration with Raila set to address the nation at 2 pm

Raila’s Ex-Spokesman Salim Lone speaks on IEBC’s declaration of Ruto as president-elect with Raila set to address the nation at 2 pm at KICC.

Salim Lone said that the presidential results announced by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chair Wafula Chebukati were unacceptable.

In an interview with the BBC on Monday, August 15, Lone said that after the declaration, he had a lengthy conversation with his former boss. The outcomes, in Raila’s view, represented a “rape of democracy.”

Lone claimed that the flag-bearer was unhappy with the outcomes and that, after assiduously running in four general elections, the fifth attempt was the best.

“I just had a long conversation with Raila Odinga, his thoughts were the result was like rape of democracy. So, he does not find it acceptable at all,” stated Lone.

The veteran journalist added that from the lengthy conversation with Raila, it was still unclear whether he will take any legal action against the presidential election results.

In addition, Raila through his Ex-Spokesman Salim Lone stated that the results announced by the electoral body lacked credibility after four of the seven commissioners said they did not agree with the results.

Meanwhile, Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga is expected to address the nation at 2 pm.

His press secretary Dennis Onsarigo said on Tuesday, 16 after IEBC declared William Ruto as president-elect.

“Raila to address the Nation at KICC, Azimio Media Center,” his press secretary Dennis Onsarigo said.

This is the first time he will speak after IEBC declaration.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has already gazetted William Ruto as the President-elect of the Republic of Kenya.
