"We will not tire to remind Kenyans that if we drop our vigilance, we are in for a ruthless dictator than we have ever seen," said Karua. The Iron Lady further added that Chebukati, Guliye, and Molu should already be on terminal leave.
The injustice being inflicted on the 4 IEBC commissioners, if it proceeds as currently conceived, will mark the beginning a massive push back against Ruto and those who think like him, by the people of Kenya.— Raila Odinga (@RailaOdinga) November 24, 2022
We will openly and robustly lead that push back.
Raila said that the UDA administration has proceeded on a path of impunity, witchhunt and revenge targeting specific people. “The regime has also targeted those who it feels could not dance to their 2027 elections tune," said Odinga.
He said that Mr. George Kinoti was among the first victim and he believes the regime has now focused on the IEBC officials.
Referred to the speakers of the Nation assembly, senate, and Ruto to be people staring selective injustice against the four commissioners.
Criminals are being protected and rewarded while those who fought for integrity are punished.
The former prime minister said Chebukati, Molu, and Guliye have sworn not to hand over to Cherera and her team. He further stated that this is the reason why there is a rush so that Chebukati has no one to hand over to.
