Jubilee majority in Parliament artificial - Raila

The National Super Alliance (NASA) presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, has laughed-off the Jubilee Party majority in both the National Assembly and the Senate, saying that elections were not only rigged in the presidential race but also gubernatorial, senatorial, parliamentary and MCA levels.

Speaking on Friday, September 1 at the Okoa Kenya offices in Lavington, the former Prime Minister said that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) defied court orders and refused to grant NASA Read-Only Access to its servers, saying this could have proven clearly who won the August 8 election.

“This rot was not only on the presidential elections but the whole contested seats. The so-called Jubilee majority in parliament is artificial. If IEBC could obey the court orders and allow full access to election servers, we could not be repeating polls because we, NASA, won,” said Odinga.

Odinga launched a scathing attack on the United States, European Union and United Kingdom for supporting democracy in Kenya and supporting the implementation of the new constitution, only to backtrack and accept what he terms as ‘computer-generated leaders’.

“It is unfortunate that the U.S. supported multi-party democracy in Kenya, but backtracked and supported Mr. Kibaki in 2007 despite full indications that elections were stolen,” added Odinga.

Additionally, the ODM Party leader congratulated the Supreme Court Judges for issuing a ruling he says “defines Kenya’s resilient democracy and for showing that courts can make an informed and independent decision.”
