Kalif Omar stated that Raila’s victory is inevitable, hopping that the Supreme Court will overturn United Democratic Alliance (UDA) president elect William Ruto.

“I strongly believe that supreme will nullify Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati’s results that declared Ruto as president elect. Raila will triumph if the supreme court nullifies the presidential election” Kalif Omar said.

Omar explained that his unconditional love and support for Raila is informed by his determination to see that every Kenyan’s right is protected as per the Kenya’s constitution.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati declared Ruto as president elect after garnering 7,141,146 votes that reflected 50.49 per cent of the total votes cast.

Raila Odinga ok the other hand commanded 6,942,930 votes that equated to 48.89 per cent.

The electoral commission gazetted Ruto and Gachagua as president elect pact, a day after announcing the results.

IEBC Commissioners dispute presidential results

However, four commissioners protested and disowned Chebukati’s results citing opaque nature of electoral process that was initiated during the summation of votes from forms 34As and 34Bs.

“We have conducted the 2022 general election and have ensured we have improved the standards and consistently communicated what is happening, have partnered with all stakeholders and say for a fact as a commission we have done a good job. But some things need to be put out there.

“As you can see we are here (at Serena Hotel) and not at Bomas (national tallying centre) because of the opaque nature of how this phase has been handled. We, therefore, cannot take ownership of the result that will be announced.” Said IEBC vice chair Cherera
