Raila vs Chebukati: Video Footage Requested in Seven-Day Ultimatum


Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chair Wafula Chebukati is demanding that Azimio leader Raila Odinga produce CCTV footage to prove claims that three commissioners visited his house before announcing the 2022 presidential election results. In a demand letter, Chebukati’s lawyer gave Raila seven days to produce the footage or face legal action.

The request stems from remarks made by Odinga during a rally on January 29, in which he claimed that Chebukati and two former commissioners visited his house. In the letter, Chebukati’s lawyer notes that their client is aggrieved over the injury to his reputation caused by Odinga’s remarks. The former IEBC chair has threatened to take legal action if the video is not made available within the timeframe set out in the letter.

Raila’s claims also elicited a response from President William Ruto, who maintains that Raila invited the three former commissioners and himself to his house to clarify why he, as a presidential candidate, would host IEBC officials before the announcement of election results.

As the allegations and counter-allegations continue to escalate, it remains to be seen whether the video footage will be produced and what impact it will have on the reputations of those involved. The situation is a testament to the ongoing tensions in Kenyan politics and the importance of transparency and accountability in the political process.
