  • Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party leader Raila Odinga received support from his allies in South Africa after jetting back into the country.

    In a statement on Tuesday, January 24, the  Azimio South Africa chapter called on President William Ruto to resign as they matched towards electoral justice.

    Geoffrey Mulindii Simiyu, Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance South Africa chapter Convenor applauded Raila for showing the right direction stating that they were fully behind him.

    “We are in complete agreement and will work with the party leader and Azimio structures both in the diaspora and in Kenya to realize the objectives set by our party leader.

    We haven’t moved on since August last year because what happened was bizarre. We support Raila move on calling for the immediate resignation of Ruto and his illegitimate regime,’ he noted.

    Simiyu added that they were sure that Raila won the 2022 general election, whose outcome was upheld by the Supreme Court.

    “We knew Baba won the elections because the diaspora results, which he won by over 62 % against the incumbent, was a good reflection of the national performance within the country,” he noted.

    In addition, he expounded that they were in support of Raila rejecting handshake with Ruto and calling on Kenyans to resist the current government of Kenya Kwanza during the rally at Kamukunji grounds in Nairobi on Monday, January 23.

    “We support his clarion call for Kenyans to reject and resist the Ruto-led regime because it is an illegitimate administration,” he added.

    Raila's allies down South echoed the whistle-blower’s revelation indicating that results from 144 constituencies did not correspond with what was verified by the IEBC.

    “Our party leader announced that the revelations confirmed that the election was stolen from him hence rejecting the 2022 elections,” he uttered.

    Responding to Raila’s demands during the funeral service of Pauline Nyokabi Kuria in Kiambu County, President Ruto noted that all servers had already been opened and were accessible to the public.

    “Chebukati and IEBC opened the server a long time ago. Form 34 A, B, and C, from all the polling stations, are on the portal. What other servers do they want to be opened?” Ruto questioned.
