Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi sends a warning to Raila’s Azimio ahead of Supreme court hearing
Renowned political analyst, Mutahi Ngunyi, has urged Azimio One Kenya Alliance leadership not to take violence to the Supreme Court if they want the apex court to overturn William Ruto’s victory.
When Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairman, Wafula Chebukati, was announcing Ruto as the President-elect last week, Azimio leaders and agents caused a commotion at the Bomas of Kenya, accusing the chairman of bungling the election..
In a tweet on Thursday, Mutahi urged former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and his Azimio team not to cause chaos at the Supreme Court if they want the apex court to overturn Ruto’s victory.
Raila went to the Supreme Court on Monday, where he filed a petition challenging Ruto’s victory.
Ngunyi further claimed that despite Azimio having a solid case at the Supreme Court, they are reciting their poem to the wrong person, who is holding the sword and unable to help them.
“I am PROUD to be Kenyan. BUT I will be MORE proud if the election is NULLIFIED with no VIOLENCE. Azimio has a GOOD case. BUT they are reciting POETRY to a man holding a SWORD.
“I warned THEM in May that the DEEP STATE will not DELIVER. Laziness at the Supreme Court will be DISASTER,” Mutahi wrote on his Twitter page.
Elsewhere, Senior Counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi now claims in the evident the Supreme Court orders a rerun in the 2022 presidential petition, the election will be held in 2025.
Abdullahi alleged that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his preferred successor Raila Odinga who is the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya flagbearer will be hellbent to ensure the constitutional timeline of sixty days is deferred.
“If the Supreme Court orders a rerun, Kenyans will go to the polls in 2025. H.E Uhuru/Raila will not allow a rerun in sixty days,” Abdullahi wrote on his twitter handle.
The Senior Counsel alluded that the duo would occasion delays by calling for reforms in the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in the event the Apex Court rules that the elections were conducted with illegalities and irregularities.
“They will demand Chebukati must go and IEBC be reconstituted, “Abdullahi noted.
Abdullahi who in 2013 and 2017 represented President Kenyatta during the presidential petition filed in the two General elections claimed that his client is seeking to cling to power through that avenue having finished his constitutional term.
“Uhuru always desperately wanted two extra years. He will get it and fragile Kenya will shatter,” he said.
