The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya leader Raila Odinga has appealed for calm ahead of the much-expected presidential election petition ruling.

Raila said that on Sunday when he met a delegation of leaders from Meru.

He expressed his confidence in the seven Supreme Court judges and urged their supporters to maintain calm.

Raila also appealed to Kenyans to continue praying for them as they hoped for a fair ruling.

“Kenyans should continue to have us in their prayers, we pray for peace and wisdom. We hope that the Supreme Court will deliver a fair ruling which will help us to strengthen the democracy in the country,” Raila said.

“​​I believe that our judges are people who are learned, qualified and are fair and therefore will deliver a just ruling,” added Odinga.

Raila's running mate Martha Karua and Agriculture CS Peter Munya flanked Raila during the visit.

Raila and Karua filed a petition at the Supreme Court challenging the presidential election results that declared President-elect William Ruto the winner.
