Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition Raila Odinga has dismissed claims by his political rivals that he will rig the August election.
Raila was speaking in Bungoma County on Sunday when he held a political rally where he guaranteed the voters that most votes that will be cast on the election day will be in his favour therefore there would be no point at all in the rigging.
The former premier said his competitors have already sensed defeat and are up with flimsy excuses such as accusing him of rigging.
“The people in ‘tangatanga’ already know they are going to lose and that is why they claim there is a plot to steal votes, there is no point to steal votes. How will I steal votes yet they are all mine,” Raila chided.
Raila said his victory was open and claimed he had already received congratulatory messages in advance from Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and South Sudan’s Salva Kiir during his visit to the two countries.
"Last week I met Museveni and he told me that he already knows that Baba will the next president of Kenya from September," Raila said. "I even went to meet Salva Kiir to launch a bridge in Juba and they have both congratulated me already, they know I am the next president."
Raila promised the residents of Bungoma that he will initiate an economic transformation in the country if he becomes president of the nation.
The former premier pledged to bring a wave of economic relief to all Kenyans within his first 100 days in office.
