Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga announced plans to hold prayers for the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
Speaking after meeting Azimio senators on Wednesday, February 15, the Azimio leader stated that the prayers would be held outside IEBC's main offices at Anniversary towers, along the University Way.
The ODM chief stated that the prayers would be held next week, however, even though he did not indicate the exact date.
He added that the prayers would go hand in hand with their nationwide rallies.
Raila explained that the prayers were aimed at calling for divine intervention for the Commission which he stated was crucial in upholding the people's will.
"This week, we shall be in Kisii on Friday, February 17 and go to Kisumu on Saturday, February 18. We will also be doing a prayer.
"A prayer for the IEBC so that we get an IEBC that will defend the rights of our people and that prayer will be done in front of the IEBC premises sometime next week," he announced.
The ODM boss maintained that he won the election insisting that they would not let go of their election victory.
"Do we wish to put these things under the carpet? Somebody got 5.9 million votes and the other got 8.1 million votes. Those are the facts and they cannot be swept under the carpet.
'We must defend electoral justice in our country and what we have told our members of Parliament to do. This is a right nobody can take away from us," he stated.
Raila announced the plans for the national prayers a day after President William Ruto also held interdenominational prayers for rain.
The Tuesday, February 14 prayers were held at Nyayo Stadium and attended by First Lady Rachel Ruto, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua among other top government officials.
