Kenya: Raila Odinga to challenge election results in court today

Kenyan eternal opponent, Raila Odinga will challenge on Monday, the results of the presidential elections which declared him loser with 48,45 % of the vote, his lawyer said.

Raila Odinga continues to reject the August 9 election results. His lawyer, Paul Mwangi, quoted by Reuters, reportedly said they would “challenge the results in court” on Monday.

Last week the election commissioner declared Deputy President William Ruto had won the election by a slim margin (50,49%), but four out of seven election commissioners dissented, saying the tallying of results had not been transparent.

This is the fifth time that Raila Odinga has run for president but lost each time. Although President Uhuru Kenyatta supported him, he lost again.
