The former presidential candidate for National Super Alliance, Raila Odinga, is planning to involve the United Nations to fight what he terms as Uhuru Kenyatta’s illegitimate re-election.
According to the Opposition insiders, the Nasa coalition was drafting a petition to challenge Uhuru’s legitimacy at the New York-based global agency.
Zipo.co.ke has learnt that the formal complaint will be delivered to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and Moussa Faki’s Addis Ababa-based African Union.
A team working on the petition is almost finalising it and will soon brief Mr Odinga on the same, the Star wrote.
It is also said that Raila met South Africa’s Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa and the country’s politician Lindiwe Nonceba Sisulu during his visit to Zanzibar although details of their meeting have not been shared with the public.
The team crafting the petition include head of Nasa technical team David Ndii, ex Foreign Affairs Assistant Minister and Kitutu Chache South MP Richard Onyonka, former EALA MP Abubakar Zein, Suna East’s Junet Mohamed and Kisumu Governor Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o.
“We will be telling the UN that no election was held on October 26. It was a charade. The UN must, therefore, be briefed on the repercussions of Uhuru’s swearing-in without being validly elected as President of the Republic of Kenya,” Homa Bay MP Peter Kaluma was quoted as saying.
