Kenya Elections: Raila Odinga To Challenge Election Result In Court

Prime Minister Raila Odinga whose party lost the 2013 Kenyan elections will challenge the result because of ‘rampant illegality’.

In essence he is saying winner, Uhuru Kenyatta rigged the election. Said Odinga in a press conference:

We would have readily conceded defeat if the IEBC delivered a credible election. It is clear the process of electing new leaders has been thwarted by another tainted election. We will move to court to challenge the result that IEBC has announced.  We ask Kenyans to uphold peace. Any violence now will destroy the country.

Oh this will be fun. Embarrassing but this will be fun times.

Said Kenyan poet Ngwatilo Mawiyoo on her twitter:

Well. I am honestly surprised. Raila is within his rights of course, & I’m glad he’s emphasizing the peace agenda and KE. But I am surprised

It is interesting.
