Two days ago, an alleged anonymous whistleblower from the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) claimed that ODM leader Raila Odinga won the 2022 presidential election.
According to documents provided by the whistleblower, Raila garnered 8,170,353 votes representing 57.3 percent while William Ruto garnered 5,915,973 votes representing 41.66 percent.
The new developments have elicited sharp debate among leaders from both the Kenya kwanza government and the opposition.
For instance, Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi on Thursday, January 19, dismissed the whistleblowers vote-rigging claims.
Mudavadi who was speaking with local media stations in Nairobi termed the allegations as “nothing but hot air.”
“First of all, I think it’s hot air… yeah nothing but hot air…” Mudavadi said.
The former ANC party leader further questioned the failure of the coalition to use the alleged evidence in their submissions at the Supreme Court in August 2022.
“Where was this whistleblower when the matters were in the Supreme Court?” Mudavadi wondered.
Mudavadi said the allegations were being propagated by agents of doom who were after testing the imaginations of Kenyans saying that the 2022 presidential results were in the public portal.
“The results were announced in accordance with the law, the results were in the portal for all members of the public to scrutinize and tally. These elections were conducted and announced in accordance with the law,” Mudavadi said.
The former vice president said while the winners celebrated and moved on, the loser in the 2022 presidential elections were stuck in explanations of self-denial.
“The winners celebrate and move on, while the losers get stuck in explanations of self-denial,” Mudavadi said.
The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party however maintained that they have crucial evidence on how the presidential results were altered and that the coalition will issue a way forward once Raila gets back to the country.
