For the first time, Azimio leader Raila Odinga discussed his phone call with President-elect William Ruto, which took place a few hours before the results were revealed by IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati.
Raila said that Ruto had called him to check on him and that they had promised to meet and talk after the election.
They spoke by phone about the results of the elections and agreed to meet later, as Raila said in an interview with BBC News Africa on Monday, August 29.
After Chebukati’s announcement, they agreed to meet to talk, but he claims that meeting never happened.
This was despite his firm belief that the head of the Kenya Kwanza alliance did not triumph in an open and honest election.
For the fifth time, Raila ran for president on August 9, and he stated that Ruto knew he had lost the election.
“We’ve not met, neither have we talked since that time because I don’t believe that he is the president-elect. I think that I should be the president-elect. And he knows it, deep in his heart that he did not win these elections, but a beneficiary of electoral fraud,” he said.
