State Deploys Agents to Monitor Raila ahead of Nationwide RalliesJanuary 30, 2023
State agents are monitoring the activities of Raila Odinga and top Azimio leaders, this is according to multiple sources inside the country’s security agencies.
This comes even as the country’s Department of Criminal Investigations (DCI) is said to have opened an investigation into Mr. Odinga over his IEBC dossier and plans to summon him for interrogation.
The Azimio coalition has lined up a series of nationwide rallies, starting today at the Jacaranda Grounds in Nairobi. Raila is expected to amplify his recent calls for an independent audit of the 2022 elections and their involvement in reconstituting the electoral commission.
Azimio is also questioning the integrity of the recruitment of new IEBC Commissioners noting Mr. Ruto may populate the selection panel with his cronies and influence the appointment of friendly commissioners to smooth his re-election path in 2027.
“Hatutishwi wala hatutatishwa. Tukutane Jacaranda (We are not intimidated and we will not be intimidated. Let’s meet in Jacaranda)!” Odinga tweeted yesterday.
On Monday, the AU Envoy said he does not recognize William Ruto as president saying that he rigged the general election.
