President Ruto has told off Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition leaders led by Raila Odinga over their plan to launch countrywide demonstrations to oppose the removal of the four IEBC commissioners who disowned the results of the August 9th presidential election.
Through Twitter on Saturday, Ruto insisted that the guilt or innocence of electoral commissioners will be determined by the tribunal he appointed on Friday to investigate their conduct.
“Even with the system/deep state you LOST the election. STOP deluding yourself & LYING. The coup to OVERTURN the PEOPLE'S will using rogue commissioners, you are now threatening us with maandamano about, FAILED. Their guilt or innocence will be determined by TRIBUNAL.RULE of LAW it is,” Ruto wrote on his official Twitter account.
On Friday, Odinga claimed the ongoing removal of the IEBC officials was part of a well-calculated ploy by Ruto and the Kenya Kwanza administration to rig the 2027 election.
“We wish to remind Mr Ruto that this country has had a system like the one he is trying to reinvent. We fought that system. We brought down that system. We will do so to the one he is inventing now. We will bring it down…Let us all stand up for our country before it is too late,” he said.
Odinga implored his supporters to rally behind him, saying unity will help to forge a better nation before it becomes too late.
“I would not wish any Kenyan to go through what some of us have been through. But I am fearing for Kenya. I am fearing for my country. We have to stand up now because later will be too late.That’s why from today, we announce the launch of that pushback we talked about a few days ago,” he added.
Following a recommendation by the National Assembly, Ruto suspended the four IEBC officials and appointed a tribunal to investigate their conduct. The officials include Vice Chairperson Juliana Cherera, as well as Commissioners Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit and Justus Nyang’aya, who resigned on Friday.
Ruto - Raila is not organizing “Maandamano” like you would want to call it. Raila is getting over a million men on the streets to fight a rouge government which is taking Kenya in the wrong direction.
The 4 commissioners stood up for the truth and what is right! Chebukati and Koome put you in place after you heavily bribed them to compromise the elections.
Colonel Khadafi had done the same thing you are doing many time before the Libyans got fed up and killed him like a chicken under a culvert!
In Germany, Adolf Hitler thought he had a tight control of the masses only to take a gun and shot himself when he was surrounded and cornered.
There was nothing legitimate about you getting into the presidency! There was no people’s will in you bending the rules to plant yourself there.
They've been suspended for further investigation, that's the right due process.....His Mass action has nothing to do with commissioners,He's try to frustrate the current administration & cause chaos with ongoing peaceful space pple enjoying..
Rao no different with somone passing 💩💩💩 gas then walks out of the room!!.
Very delusional and maybe hearing voices telling him USA stole his election and not Carmago!.. endelea kusikia masauti mzee, your are jinxed hata kwa Mungu hutoboi!
President Ruto should ignore the peoples conman by not elevating the peoples conman into something that the peoples conman isn’t?!? Ignore the bullshìt and focus on the peoples agenda!!!
Ruto is the One deluding himself. For the Future is Going to Tell very Soon.🙏
