The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition leader Raila Odinga has said he is interested more in the truth about what transpired during the August, 9 general elections and the vote tallying process that took place afterwards.
Raila said that on Sunday during a church service he attended at the AIC Olympic in Kibera.
The former premier insisted that for there to be reconciliation, the truth has to be dispensed.
“For there to be reconciliation, truth must be known. Where is the truth?” posed Raila.
Raila accused the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) of being divided and wondered which faction should be trusted; the faction led by the IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati or the one led by his vice-chairperson Juliana Cherera.
He wondered aloud in which faction the truth lies as far as the elections are concerned. He said all he wanted was the truth.
“Are the three saying the truth or it is the four? Where is the truth? Between the two groups of commissioners, somewhere there is the truth. What I am asking for as Raila Amollo Odinga is to be told the truth,” Raila said.
Raila said the IEBC is trying to stage a civilian coup and subvert the will of Kenyans.
“It is a shame to democracy, shame to the world. These are things we do not want to see. They are trying to stage a civilian coup to subvert the will of the people. Kenyans will not allow it,” he said.
The former prime minister appealed to the Supreme Court to render justice while pledging he will accept the verdict because he was not afraid of losing.
“I do not fear, if I lost I will say I lost. And I will go home. But where is the truth? I am sure I did not lose, I will stand firm, and I will not be shaken,” Raila said.
