A day after Kenya's Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission [IEBC] chairman Wafula Chebukati announced William Ruto as the winner of Kenya's presidential race, the losing side is speaking out.
Defeated candidate Raila Odinga publicly announced Tuesday that "figures announced by Mr. Chibukati are null and void and must be questioned by a court of law."
"What we saw yesterday (Monday) was a travesty and a blatant disregard of the constitution of Kenya," the 77-year-old former prime minister said.
"We totally and without reservations reject the presidential results."
Odinga vowed to pursue "all constitutional and legal options" after rejecting the outcome of last week's election that handed the presidency to his rival William Ruto by a narrow margin of around 230,000 votes.
"I do not want to fully address our strategies going forward but... we will be pursuing all constitutional and legal options available to us," he told reporters a day after the results were announced, without specifying if he would issue a court challenge.
The four IEBC commissioners said that the parties should seek resolution through the courts.
Makau Mutua, the head of defeated candidate Raila Odinga's campaign think-tank, said officials of his Azimio La Umoja (Declaration of Unity) Alliance were discussing a course of action.
