Raila Odinga: NASA Has No Faith In IEBC To Conduct Fresh Elections


NASA flag bearer Raila Odinga has said the opposition coalition has no faith in IEBC to conduct fresh elections.

He made this known while speaking outside the Supreme Court on Friday, adding that the electoral agency’s officers should be prosecuted for their actions.

“We have no faith in IEBC who committed criminal acts and they belong to jail. We will ask for prosecution of all the officials who have caused this,” said Mr. Odinga.

The jubilant former Prime Minister then termed the Supreme Court verdict a triumph for the people of Kenya.

“This is a triumph for the people of Kenya. Our journey to Canaan is unstoppable… We are marching on and we shall get there.”

Raila thanked his lawyers and most especially the judges for their bold decision.

“For the first time, a ruling has been made by court nullifying the elections. I want to thank the judges for doing this for posterity of people of Kenya.”

Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka who was Raila’s running mate said he was happy with the decision. He, however, noted that the IEBC should not go unpunished.

“I am happy to be a Kenyan today. We will have to look deeply into the conduct of IEBC. We do not have faith that they are capable of conducting a free and fair election,” he said.
