BY NAMULONGO PETER,NAIROBI,9TH NOV 2021-The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) now wants Deputy President William Ruto to assure the country that he will concede defeat if Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga is declared winner of next year’s presidential poll.
Party spokesperson and Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna claimed that the DP and his allies are sensing defeat, and have started to complain that Cabinet Secretaries are supporting the ODM leader.
According to Sifuna, the uproar from Ruto’s camp shows that they ‘are preparing themselves to reject the results of 2022 elections.’
“I am concerned. And I want Deputy President William Ruto to assure the country that he will accept the results of the elections of August 2022.” Sifuna said during a meeting with a section of leaders from the Lower Eastern region who had paid a courtesy visit to the party on Tuesday.
A confident Sifuna said the signs are there and all can already see that Raila is winning the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“He (Ruto) is protesting, to lay grounds to reject the poll outcome. Ruto must accept the decision of Kenyans to make Raila Odinga the 5th President of the Republic of Kenya.” He said
