Opposition leader, Raila refuses to recognize Ruto’s presidency in Kenya

Kenya’s opposition leader, Raila Odinga, has said his political coalition does not recognize William Ruto as the President of Kenya and declared the new Kenyan government as illegitimate.

Mr Ruto defeated him in last August’s poll, but Mr Odinga who appeared at Nairobi’s Kamukunji Stadium along with his running mate Martha Karua, and other allies repeated claims that the results were manipulated.

The claims had already been rejected in court.

He declared that he and his movement reject the 2022 election result totally, which was received with great cheers and applause from an adoring crowd.
