The opposition has given yet another indication that it might trouble President William Ruto’s government, on top of criticizing him and his leadership.
The first move was taken by the camp’s Second in Command Martha Karua, who has moved to the East African Court of Justice seeking to have it overturn Ruto’s win and declare it undemocratic.
On Saturday, Azimio Spokesman Makau Mutua pointed at an even tougher task lying ahead for Ruto, announcing that they are keen on dealing with him.
He said that it is for this reason that they, through Azimio boss Raila Odinga, have not conceded, and Kenyans should prepare for something big.
“No one should imagine that the Kenyan presidential election is over. We’ve never conceded anything. Stay tuned,” Mutua, a professor of law and close ally of the former Prime Minister said on Saturday.
On the other side is Karua, a Senior Counsel and Raila’s running mate in the concluded election, who wants the court to declare the earlier Supreme Court validation of Ruto’s election an illegality.
“The applicants (Karua and MUHURI) are seeking a declaration that the determination given by the Supreme Court of Kenya on September 8, 2022 and the detailed judgement of September 26, 2022, was not done in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution and the laws of Kenya,” her suit reads.
At home, Raila is bashing and criticizing Ruto over his new policies, among them his tax hike plans and purge on a section of DCI sleuths.
