nasaNASA leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday alleged that the just concluded election was a sham and that only 3.5 million people turned up to vote.

The IEBC recorded a 38 per cent voter turn out which translates into 7.9 million voters.

Odinga formed the People’s Assembly which he says will help restore democracy but in line with the law.

“There will be a broad-based forum of elected leaders and sector including workers, civil society, religious leaders and economic interest groups,” he said at the Wiper party headquarters.

“We are forming a task force to look into businesses that have led to this [political] crisis,” he said.

“The task force will include constitutional amendments and its work will be to take the assembly to the people for adoption and then to the county assembly who will endorse it.

We will not allow two megalomaniacs to destroy the freedom of democracy.”

Repeat Election Rigged

The opposition leader also said that the October polls were ‘pre-determined’ hence calling for the boycott.

“Our people will not vote with predetermined outcomes,” he said. “We reiterate that this election must not stand. If allowed to stand it will make a mockery of elections. We will not allow fraud, not only in Kenya, but in Africa as a whole.”

“A president who does not follow the constitution cannot exercise authority. We shall conduct a free and fair election as ordered by the Supreme Court.”

The ODM party leader asked the county governments to pass resolutions that will ‘support the establishment of the Peoples assembly.’
