We know how the votes were suppressed – Jubilee SG Jeremiah Kioni

Jeremiah Kioni, Secretary General of Jubilee, has reiterated that the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance will file a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the outcome of the presidential elections in 2022.

In an interview on Friday, Kioni emphasized that Azimio will file the petition in the coming days, complete with evidence he claims will prove beyond all doubt that the results of the presidential election on August 9 were tampered with.

According to Kioni, Azimio is currently laying the groundwork for a Supreme Court petition challenging the results.

“Azimio is still keen (on filing the petition). How do you allow that kind of theft to go on? We know how the votes were suppressed and our legal team is currently handling that but rest assured the petition will be in court,” Kioni told Citizen Digital.

He once again chastised the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for their alleged role in electoral malpractice, even alleging that some IEBC employees colluded with rival politicians to rig the elections.

“We have gone through an electoral process that experienced rigging on an industrial scale, something that we have never seen since 1963.

“It is an embarrassment caused by the IEBC. If that rigging is not addressed by our courts of law, it makes no sense to go into any elections in future,” he said.

Despite the aforementioned complaints, Kioni thanked Kenyans for keeping the peace following the announcement of the president-elect by IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati on Monday, implying the 2017 handshake between outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga played a significant role in this.

Kioni also commented on a number of incidents in which independent candidates who won elective seats at the polls defected to President-elect William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza team, warning that their change of allegiance could cost them their seats.

“If you were elected as an Independent candidate do not be in a hurry to pledge loyalty to another party. You must maintain that independent status for the rest of your term in Parliament.

His remarks come after Mandera Governor Ali Roba’s UDM party joined Kenya Kwanza on Thursday, despite being a member of the Azimio coalition in the run-up to the elections.
