Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga has said that he respects the decision of the Supreme Court.
According to a statement issued on Monday 5th shortly after the ruling by the supreme court ,the former Prime minister noted that the coalition has respected the opinion of the court but disagreed with the decision made by the supreme court.
“We have taken note of the decision of the Supreme Court on the Presidential election held on August 9th, 2022. We have always stood for the the rule of law and the constitution. In this regard, we respect the opinion of the court although we vehemently disagree with their decision today.” Raila said.
Odinga further thanked his legal team for professionally defending his petition in court, noting that its not the end of fight for democracy.
Our lawyers proffered irrefutable evidence and the facts were on our side, unfortunately the judges saw it otherwise. We find it incredible that the judges found against us on all nine (9) grounds and occasion resulted to unduly exaggerated language to refute our claims. This judgement is by no means the end of our movement, in fact it inspires us to redouble our efforts to transform this country into a prosperous democracy where each and every Kenyan can find their full belonging.” he further said
“We thank our supporters and Kenyans across the country for standing with us. We will be communicating in the near future on our plans to continue our struggle for transparency, accountability and democracy. God bless you and God bless Kenya!” He concluded
