3.30 pm: Raila announced the return of weekly rallies in a bid to defend the rights of Kenyans. 

"We want Kenyans to come out strong. There will be no elections in 2027 until we clean up the dirt of 2022. There are no two ways about it. We will campaign and defend the rights of Kenyans to elect the leadership of their choice.

Beginning today, the meetings that we had postponed at Jacaranda Grounds will happen this Sunday, January 29. 

3.23 pm Raila lauded his soldiers who stood with him post-August 9 elections comprising Narc-Kenya party leader Martha Karua, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, former Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya, former CS Eugene Wamalwa, Prof. Makau Mutua, Jubilee Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni among others. 

3.21 pm: Raila put to task former IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati over former IEBC official Chris Msando's death. 

"You say there was an attempt to Kill Chebukati. Who killed (former IEBC official) Msando?" Raila posed. 

3.20 pm: Raila disregarded Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua's remarks - noting that he is the real soldier in the fight for liberation. 

3.13 pm: Raila affirmed that he did not want a handshake with the current regime. 

2.57 pm: Raila responded to Ruto's claims of an alleged murder plot against former IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati. He noted that if the president had sufficient evidence, he ought to take it to the relevant authorities.

"What Ruto is insinuating is that former President Uhuru Kenyatta is the one behind the plot." 

"What would have prevented him (Uhuru)? He was the Head of State. The president cannot make such utterances. He needs to have evidence," Raila stated. 

2.46 pm: Raila listed eight demands as his Clarion Call: 

1. We reject the 2022 election results totally

2. We don't recognise Mr. William Ruto as the President of Kenya. We equally don't recognise any official appointed by him. 

3. We demand a forensic audit of the servers. 

4. We demand any attempts to reconstitute the IEBC single-handedly by William Ruto cease. 

5. We reject the empty promises of the current regime. We call upon Kenyans to reject the punitive promises. 

6, We call on kenyans to resist and demand the removal of punitive taxes on services and items such as Unga, electricity, fuel, sugar, school fees, etc.

7. We demand that the Kenya Kwanza government resigns as it doesn't have the mandate to govern the country. 

8. We ask the people to say no to policies from the government.

2.30 pm: Azimio leader Raila Odinga claimed that former IEBC commissioner, Abdi Guliye, Boya Molu and CEO Hussein Marjan formed a cartel to exclude the real presidential election results. 

"Wafula Chebukati, two IEBC commissioners, and the CEO "formed a cartel" and cooked their own results," he stated. 

"The unilateral results announced by Chebukati had nothing to do with the votes you cast," he added. 

2.23 pm: NARC-Kenya party leader Martha Karua warned the government against ruling with an iron fist. 

"The government is behaving like bullies. I want to tell them we are not Form Ones to be bullied," she stated.
