During the campaign period, supporters of Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party were claiming that their presidential candidate Raila Odinga will win the presidential election.
While Kenya Kwanza Alliance presidential candidate William Ruto sought the support of the majority of the Kenyans, Azimio supporters said that they had the ‘system’ on their side.
The phrase ‘system’ or ‘Deep state’ emerged to convey the notion of a powerful shadowy cabal, not officially elected to the government but, nonetheless, contorting the wishes of the people during elections and afterward in the governance of the country.
However, despite having the ‘system’ on his (Raila) side, IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati declared Raila Odinga’s bitter rival William Ruto the fifth president-elect of the Republic of Kenya.
This raised sharp reactions from a section of Kenyans who questioned the existence of the ‘system’ and whether it was effective as it had been claimed in the past elections.
In an interview with KTN News on Friday, August 26, lawyer and political analyst Ambrose Weda sensationally claimed that the system is the one to blame for Raila’s presidential loss to William Ruto.
Weda stated that some of the people who were part of the system were doing nothing apart from too much English.
He further said that the same people were cowards as they feared Uansi Gishu Woman Rep-elect Glady Boss Shollei and UDA IT experts Davis Chirchir.
“I can say my fellow Kenyans that Baba (Raila Odinga) was let down by we English speakers that were in the system but were doing nothing, talking a lot of English but they fear people like Gladys Boss Shollei, Davis Chirchir,
“They didn’t even have writing materials. They let Baba down and one-day history will judge them harshly. But may the Lord protect them in a special way as we pray for them to be more diligent next time,” Weda said.
