Azimio flagbearer Raila Odinga has asked Kenyans to keep him and the coalition in their prayers ahead of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the presidential election petition.
Speaking during a meeting with a delegation of Meru leaders on Sunday, September 4, Raila made a clarion call for his supporters to pray for peace to prevail even after the judgement is made.
He reiterated that the petition was a quest for justice, which he hoped would prevail on Monday, September 5, for the sake of Kenyans
“Kenyans should continue to have us in their prayers, we pray for peace and wisdom. We hope that the supreme court will deliver a fair ruling which will help us to strengthen the democracy in the country,” the flagbearer reiterated.
The former Prime Minister affirmed his belief in the judicial system. However, when questioned on whether he would accept the outcome of the court, he declined to give a definite answer.
“I will not want to speculate or anticipate the outcome of the court. I believe that our judges are people who are learned, qualified and are fair and therefore will deliver a just ruling,” Odinga remarked.
