President Ruto insists he won the 2022 presidential election fair and square, dismissing claims that he was rigged in.
Ruto laughed off claims by the Azimio coalition that Odinga defeated him, stating that his victory was a result of the huge support he enjoys across the country, including the clergy.
“I am sure you now know why I won the elections. With somebody with the stature of (Outgoing Kitale Bishop) Maurice Crowley telling people to work with William Ruto, what other outcome did you expect,” he said during the installation of Kitale Catholic Bishop Henry Juma Odonya.
Citing a report released by an alleged IEBC whistleblower, Azimio leaders claimed Odinga garnered 8,170,355 votes (57 percent) ahead of President Ruto, who secured 5,919,973 votes (41 percent).
Jubilee Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni said the whistleblower report, which details how rigging and manipulation were allegedly done to overturn the will of the people, proved beyond doubt that Odinga, 78, defeated Ruto by a sizable margin.
"59 percent of the constituencies examined showed results that cannot be verified with absolute certainty but again, in the same document, what has been verified so far shows that Raila won the elections with 8,170,355 votes representing 57.53 of the votes cast. Ruto got 5,915,973 votes representing 41.66 pc of the votes cast," said Kioni.
Kioni said the report shows that voting results from 144 constituencies were altered by some IEBC officials in favor of Ruto.
"What we have seen in one of the pages is that at one point, 144 constituencies had their results verified and often at times those results are far from the results announced by IEBC," he added.
Kioni claimed that a majority of the alleged electoral malpractices occurred in the vote-rich Mt Kenya region.
"Most of the manipulation happened within the Mt. Kenya region," Kioni said.
Odinga has since called a public rally at Kamukunji grounds on Monday to address the whistleblower dossier.
All the Government “affordable” houses he’s launching belong to William Ruto.
The man is a liar.A Shameless crook.
"Mucera na mukundu akundukaga take." Hii Methali ya taifa la WaEmbu yasema ya kwamba, ukishirikiana na mtu mwenye tabia za ajabu, mwishowe, tabia mbaya za huyo mtu hukufanya kuwa kama yeye.
Rigathi na Samoei ni wanafunzi wa siasa mbovu za Hayati Toroitich. Wapigania ukombozi wa pili wa Kenya walipokuwa jela wakiteswa na Toroitich, Rigathi na Samoei walikuwa wakiimba kwa sauti ya juu sana:
"Tawala Kenya Tawala Tawala Kenya tawala
Rais Moi tawala kenya tawala.
Unaongoza vyema, unaongoza vyema,
Rais Moi unaongoza vyema."
Kwa hiyo, Rigathi na Samoei wanavuna mahindi yaliyopandwa na watu wengine.
kwa muda wa zaidi ya miaka mitano, Samoei alikataa kufanya kazi pamoja na Rais Uhuru. Kwa wakati huo wote, alikuwa makanisani akitafuta kura. Jambo la ajabu ni kuwa, badala ya kufanya kazi kama makamu wa rais, alichukua wakati huo kusoma na kumaliza shahada yake ya uzamivu (PhD) huku akipata ulinzi mkubwa sana wa serikali. Kwa kifupi, tangu 1992, huyu Ndugu yetu (Samoei)amekuwa akifyonza mali ya umma bila kufanya kazi yoyote nchini.
Hebu msikilize profesa wa siasa katika chuo kikuu anavyosema juu yake:
Something don't add up here. With only 41% reporting,since 59% is unverifiable according to the NGO report, Raila worn with 8,170,355 million votes and Ruto got 5,915,973 votes- a total of 14,086,328. The total votes here is almost the same total votes as that were cast by all Kenyan voters on the election day- August 9th,2022; a total of 14,213,027 (ref: BBC News August 15the 2022). Seems like NGOs were rich on votes.
