Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party has said the Supreme Court failed to satisfy the basic requirements of a fair trial by disregarding their evidence.
While responding to the full judgement issued by the Supreme Court on Monday, September 26, Raila Odinga took issue with the court’s findings and further questioned the validity of the elections and the language of the bench.
“In our view, and we feel entitled to use the language of the Court the full decision lacks merit and is plainly “hot air.” We accordingly reiterate our objections to the reasoning of the judges. It lacks integrity in both fact and law, and is not grounded in any discernable logic,” Azimio said in a statement.
Moreover, the Azimio leader noted that evidence of illegal conduct by Venezuelans and related technology failures, lack of integrity and the 50+1 threshold question were all brushed aside.
Additionally, in the joint statement with Martha Karua, Raila accused the Court of citing IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati’s illegal conduct and on the other hand excusing him despite what they termed as obvious violations of the law.
“On one hand, the Court clearly establishes the illegal conduct by Mr. Wafula Chebukati the Chairperson of the IEBC. On the other hand, however, the Court overlooks this critical finding and excuses Mr. Chebukati despite the glaring violations of the Constitution and the law.”
Nonetheless, Raila Odinga stated that it is absurd that structural reforms of the IEBC as cited by the court could have led to a free and fair election.
Mr. Odinga added that Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition will continue pursuing justice.
