This was after an alleged whistleblower report alleged that Raila won the elections after garnering 58 percent of the total votes cast compared to Ruto’s 42 percent.
Raila in his recent media interview maintained that he will lead mass protests across the country should President William Ruto fail to order IEBC to open servers within 14 days.
“If demands are not heeded within 14 days, we shall lead Kenyans to mass action across the country to restore sanity,” Raila stated.
However, responding to Raila’s demands to have IEBC servers opened, President William Ruto on Thursday, March 2, termed the push by Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition leader as a waste of time.
The Head of State who was speaking during the Women Enterprise Fund launch at KICC said it was not his responsibility to have the servers opened.
He further stated that he had no time to engage in such illegalities adding that he was focused on working for Kenyans.
“Where in the constitution does it say that it is the responsibility of the President to go and open servers? If you have time go and open the servers. I’m busy organizing the women’s enterprise fund, planning how we’re going to produce food,” the president said.
The president said he will not be cowed by Raila’s threats to hold mass protests and told him to proceed with his protests.
Ruto further faulted the former Prime Minister for using protests to achieve his personal gains.
“Good people don’t waste your time talking too many things. You are used to using extra-judicial, extra-constitutional, and extra-legal means to achieve your selfish ends,” he added.
