Raila’s onslaught on the judiciary as he tears Martha Koome and Isaac Lenaola during Azimio Parliamentary Group meeting in Machakos.
Azimio Leader Raila Odinga has yet again launched an onslaught judiciary on the unanimous ruling by the Supreme Court that upheld the victory of President William Ruto.
Raila termed the ruling as one inspired by the devil and was nothing short of “judicial thuggery” contrary to Koome’s comments that the verdict was inspired by God.
He faulted the move by the Supreme Court to dismiss his petition terming the evidence ‘hot air’.
“Supreme Court is now in politics and they say that the ruling was inspired by God. I believe the ruling was inspired by the devil,” he said.
“The actions by the Chief Justice are clearly sycophantic and demean the dignity of the office of the Chief Justice,” he added.
“The words that the Chief Justice used against us have never been used in our court even in the days of single-party rule and state capture of the Judiciary,” he said.
Raila Odinga also singled out Justice Isaac Lenaola for alleged intimidation of Busia senator Okiya Omutatah who was one of the petitioners in the case.
“In fact, Justice Isaac Lenaola is publicly accused of threatening Senator Okiya Omtatah with ruination over his stand on the court judgment,” Raila alleged.
“The court registrar has already issued threats to those who have criticized the despicable judgment of the court. Lenaola is publicly accused of threatening Senator Omtatah with humiliation over his stand,” Odinga noted.
